Wimal wants Mangala’s statement probed

The Police should investigate UNP Media Spokesman Mangala Samaraweera’s statement in respect of the alleged attack on the Judicial Services Commission Secretary, Construction, Engineering Services, Housing and Common Amenities Minister Wimal Weerawansa said.

Participating in a ceremony to handover a house to an underprivileged family in Athurugiriya under the Janasevana Kepakaru Housing Programme, Weerawansa questioned if there was an involvement of the UNP in the assault of the Secretary.

“Mangala Samaraweera says that the JSC Secretary was assaulted using a drug addict and the Police will arrest them. It is only because he is aware of such a plan, he could make such a statement. As we all know, the Akuressa Pradeshiya Sabha chairman was arrested over allegations of molesting a girl. We have no idea about whether it is true or not. But did the Police neglect their duty because he is the Akuressa Pradeshiya Sabha chairman? Did the Police send a drug addict to Court? The Police took action against him without considering his position,” the minister said.

Weerawansa said another Pradeshiya Sabha chairman was arrested in connection with the Kahawatte incident.

“Some blamed the government over the killing of MP Maheshwaran and Janaka Perera. But finally everyone understood that they were done by the LTTE. Some people wait for an incident to blame the government,” he said.

“The Police should investigate MP Samaraweera’s statement. Only the person who gave the contract can make this type of statement.

“Drug addicts have no idea who the Judicial Services Commission Secretary is. These people want to create problems in this peaceful country and destroy it. We have a responsibility to defeat all these forces,” Weerawansa said.
