The Sunday Times stands by story of arrest and deportation of Lankae-News Editor
The President’s Media Unit has responded to the front page report in the Sunday Times last week, that President Maithripala Sirisena urged British High Commissioner James Dauris to arrest and deport London based Lankae-News Editor Pradepa Sandaruwan Senadeera.
President’s Media Division Senior Director Dharmasiri Bandara Ekanayake says, “The news item is incorrect and falsely reports the said meeting, as no request was made to either deport or arrest the Editor of the claimed website or, any other person.”
Our Reporter adds: The arrest and deportation of Mr Senadeera was in fact discussed, and took a considerable time of the meeting. The President’s staff also handed over to High Commissioner Dauris, a dossier of Sinhala reports, translated into English, published on the Lankae-News website.
