COLOMBO (News 1st); Sri Lanka is led by a person with a dark past, said JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake on Wednesday (07).

Speaking in Parliament, the opposition lawmaker said it was under this leader that the ‘White-Van’ concept was born and people like Lasantha Wickremetunge were assassinated while people like Poddala (Jayantha) and Keith Noyahr were assaulted.

‘Sivaram was forced to disappear on his instructions,’ he said while noting that the list must also include (Prageeth) Ekneligoda, Lalith, and Kugan.

‘MP Welgama once spoke of the same,’ said AKD in Parliament adding a person with power to suppress is in the top position.

People are being intimidated directly and indirectly while public leaders are being intimidated as well, he said.

‘The media too is being intimidated,’ said Dissanayake.

‘The Sirasa media was bombed with claymore mines and even attacked,’ said AKD.

He told the house that this conspiracy to silence the media must be stopped.
