For press freedom by Sunanda Deshapriya
Administrative director of Sirikotha D.B. Medagedara today (20) launched a complaint against the Sirasa TV station.
The complaint stated that the TV station evoked the public into attacking Sirikotha, leading to the threatening of the UNP leader with death.
In a special statement in Parliament today, the UNP leader Rail Wickremesinghe said that there was a threat to his life.
Noting that the Sirasa channel as well as the ‘Maubima’ newspaper owned by Tiran Alles was among the elements behind yesterday’s attack, Mr. Wickremesinghe said that Maubima and Sirasa should chiefly be held responsible, if some harm should befall him
