Nasser Shaikh, the elder brother brother of Khuram, has released this statement from Colombo where four men have been jailed for his murder:
“Today, the country has done what many people hoped and prayed for. Those who killed my brother have been punished and are now behind bars for a long time.
"Our campaign was not only about justice, but to bring awareness of the wonderful work my brother did around the world, working in humanitarian aid. He is a true inspiration for many and we hope his legacy continues with those he left behind.
"Whilst our family and friends find it difficult to come to terms with the tragic loss, I hope today can bring some comfort to everyone involved that we achieved the justice we set out for and the country can move forward in a better place for many, ensuring no other person suffers the same fate as my brother.
"I wish to thank everyone who embarked on my personal journey around the world and supported it immensely, which includes the Sri Lankan public.
"I would also like to thank the British Government who have been instrumental in seeking answers for our family, the Sri Lankan officials for progressing the trial towards its resolution, but more importantly to acknowledge the bravery and defiance shown by those who gave witness accounts in the case.
"Today is a symbolic moment: a day the country delivered justice – a day I delivered my promise to a brother.”
