Both JVP General Secretary Tilvin Silva and Patriotic National Movement Chief Dr. Gunadasa Amarasekera yesterday warned the media of interested parties issuing bogus press statements on their respective letter heads. The warning followed last week’s release of a spurious statement on the JVP’s letter head. The controversial statement attributed to the JVP politburo attacked JVP dissident leader Wimal Weerawansa. The JVP General Secretary has brought this to the notice of police headquarters.
Dr. Amarasekera dismissed a statement which had been attributed to the Gampaha District Organisation of the PNM which he asserted was the work of a group bent on destroying the relationship between the JVP and the PNM.
