Deputy Highways Minister Mervyn Silva yesterday told Parliament that he has evidence to prove that former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka ordered the assassination of the then Sunday Leader Editor Lasantha Wickrematunga.

“I have the evidence with me and I appeal to the government to launch an inquiry into the Wickremetunga assassination,” Deputy Minister Silva told Parliament, during the debate on the extention of the state of emergency. He alleged that Fonseka had also ordered attacks on journalists Upali Tennakoon and Keith Noyhar.

MP Silva urged the UNP not to protect murderers
