Wickramabahu backs conspiracy theory
By Mohamed Haniff
Nava Sama Samaja Party leader Dr. Wickramabahu Karunaratne says he cannot disagree with the people’s thinking that politicians behind the Ekneligoda, Raviraj, Lasantha and Thajudeen killings are not exposed and punished due to some deals which certain government politicians were party to.
Karunaratne demanded to know what had delayed the process of investigations. The NSSP would support any campaign to arrest politicians directly or indirectly involved in those killings.
The NSSP leader told The Island that January would see a series of protests urging the government to expose the ‘culprits’. He would also support a signature campaign planned by Reyaz Salley, urging the government to reveal the identities of the suspects in the Prageeth Ekneligoda, Raviraj, Lasantha Wickramatunga and Wasim Thajudeen killings.
He said he wanted to know why former President Mahinda Rajapaksa visited only the suspects in the aforesaid cases. He condemned the way the Rajapaksa government had treated Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka.
