Petition demands arrest of politicos responsible for attack on journalist


Civil society groups have launched a campaign to collect signatures for a petition demanding the immediate arrest of ruling party politicians responsible for the recent attack on journalist Freddie Gamage within the Negombo Municipal Council premises. UNP organiser for Negombo and Western Provincial Council member Royce Vijitha Fernando and Municipal Council members, Sangeeth Fernando, Dr Henry Rosairo and Gina Frenando signed the petition over the weekend in Negombo. The campaign got underway in Kurunegala early this month to pressure the government to arrest those who had ordered the attack on the journalists. Two persons arrested in connection with the attack are scheduled to be produced in the Negombo Magistrate’s Court today (June 28)
