SRI LANKA - UNITED STATES - Victims of violence, a Sri Lankan Catholic singing duo forgives attackers [AN]

Singers Rookantha and Chandraleka were subjected to a punitive raid by the President’s Security Division in 2000 because of their support for the main opposition party. The officers robbed them of jewels and other precious objects, and threatened to kill the family. After 13 years, the court convicted the perpetrators of the attack.
