Sri Lanka opposition party to sack members involved in Sirikotha attack

Jan 01, Colombo: Sri Lankas main opposition United National Party (UNP) is considering the permanent sacking of persons involved in attacking the party headquarters, Sirikotha on December 19th.

UNP sources said that several party seniors have made the proposal in order to prevent creating a bad precedence by overlooking those who were involved in the attack.

The party leadership has already appointed a committee headed by President’s Counsel Srinath Perera to inquire and report to the Working Committee about the incidents that took place on December 19th.

The party hierarchy is looking at taking severe action against the persons identified in the report as those who have been involved in the attack on Sirikotha, which resulted in causing much damage to the party headquarters.

The members who are identified in the report would be permanently sacked from the party after presenting their names to the party convention.
