my-3Amid widespread protests by Tamils, Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena cancelled his scheduled visit to Tamil areas to celebrate an annual Hindu festival of Thai Pongal on January 15th.

Elaborate arrangements were made to organize this festival, but at the last minute Sri Lankan President cancelled his visit and instead sent his Prime Minister Ranil Wikramasinghe. Visiting British Foreign Minister Hugo Swire, and several diplomats also joined this festival.

Tamils were protesting for not giving equal rights in the current Constitution, including special rights given to Buddhism, which is the only State religion in Sri Lanka. There are calls to give equal rights to all religions and to remove special status given to Buddhism in the new Constitution.

Protests are also held to highlight the failure of the Sri Lankan Government – even after one year in power – to address the plight of thousands of Tamils who disappeared, continued imprisonment of Tamil political prisoners and overwhelming presence of Sri Lankan military in Tamil areas

The Attorney General (AG) has directed the Police Colombo Crimes Division to arrest UNP Parliamentarian Hirunika Premachandra in connection with the alleged abduction of a youth in Dematagoda.

Authoritative sources from the Attorney General’s Department told the Daily News that the Attorney General instructed the Police to arrest the Parliamentarian on Thursday night.

“There was sufficient evidence to suggest the MP’s involvement in the incident. In addition to the statements recorded from witnesses and suspects,

the AG department also took into consideration scientific evidence such as telephone records of the suspects,” a highly placed source from the Department said.

The source added that the CCD probing into the matter would make the arrest early next week, based on the AG’s department’s recommendation.

The Police, two weeks ago, sought the AG’s Department opinion on the arrest of Premachandra over Amila Priyankara’s alleged abduction.

The investigation into the alleged abduction took a new turn last week with a statement given by the daughter of the supporter who was at the venue at the time of the abduction. The statement was forwarded to the AG’s Department by the team handling investigations.

According to the Police, the 11-year-old girl who is the daughter of the fifth suspect in the case had said she met Hirunika Premachandra before as well as after the abduction.

The girl who was at the scene at the time of the incident, can be seen in the CCTV video standing by her father, while the abductee is being forcibly hurled out of the drapery store in Dematagoda.

The Colombo Crimes Division, last Friday, informed Court of the girl’s statement, which concurred with Amila Priyankara’s version that he was taken to the office of the MP before being threatened and released.

Last week, the AG’s Department requested for CCTV footage of the press briefing where Premachandra detailed the incident, citing that she was merely trying to settle a domestic dispute.
