Mass Protest Against Ranil protecting Mahinda.

Political parties, university lecturers, artistes civil society activists, teachers, lawyers and many others will take to the streets tomorrow to protest against the government for delaying investigations into allegations of fraud and corruption that had taken place during the previous regime and attempts to cover up these charges.

The protest is being organized by the Voice Against Corruption and the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) under the theme ‘No more deals’ against the national government.

JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake said that the government is using the Avant Garde investigation as a media circus which has now become a big joke. The Voice Against Corruption said that although over 20 cases of corruption had been brought to light and evidence had been produced, so far nothing has been done with regard to the conducting of a credible investigation.

The protest will commence at 4pm from Maradana and proceed to Fort and it will also hold a protest opposite the Fort Railway Station.
