Police questions Janarala editor

Police attached to the Peliyagoda Crime Division have entered the office premises of the Janarala weekend publication a short while ago (May 16).

Police have informed the Chief Editor of the newspaper – Chandana Sirimalwatta that they have arrived to question about a news article pertaining to a gold racket, which was published in the paper.

Several persons including four policemen in uniform have arrived thus.

Earlier in the day, they had gone to the Janarala press in Rathmalana and had accompanied the printer with them before going to the office premises.

On arriving at the press, police have informed Mr. Sirimalwatta to arrive at the Mount Lavinia Police Special Investigations Unit to obtain a statement.

However, noting that it was the day that the paper went to print, Mr. Sirimalwatta had said that it was necessary for him to be at office today and asked the police to arrive at his office to obtain the required statement.
