Azwer earns Speaker’s wrath (for threatening a journalist)

July 7, 2011,
The UNP on Thursday brought an alleged attempt by UPFA National List A. H. M. Azwer to pressure a parliamentary correspondent to give him extra coverage or face the consequences.

Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa assured an investigation. The correspondent alleged that MP Azwer had threatened to withdraw his parliamentary pass if he didn’t give him the coverage.

An irate Speaker Rajapaksa said that his powers couldn’t be assumed by his parliamentary colleagues. (SI)
