Sri lankan accused of Swiss murder due back in Auckland court


A Sri Lankan-born man arrested over a murder 14 years ago in Switzerland is due back in an Auckland court where he's expected to apply for bail.

The 42-year-old will appear in Auckland District Court today and his lawyer is expected to apply for continued name suppression and to get his client released from custody.

The man was arrested last month on behalf of the Swiss government, which wants to extradite him and charge him with murdering his former partner, 23-year-old Kavitha Kandiah.
