The Leader of the JVP Anura Dissanayaka is to lodge a complaint with the IGP regarding a mud campaign carried out targeting him by several web sites based on a fictitious matter.
The JVP has published an announcement regarding this in its official web page.
The announcement states:
JVP victories enrage slanderers…
A complaint to IGP against slanderers (General Secretary Comrade Tilvin Silva)
Our party in order to change the existing political path and redirect the country on a new journey is rallying masses and various forces and is marching forward along a victorious path. Enemies, especially those who administered the country previously and were rejected by the masses, seeing the victories of the JVP, have become extremely tense and nervous and have begun their smear campaigns again against the JVP and its leaders.
One outrageous slander spread by certain websites has targeted the Leader of our party Comrade Anura Dissanayaka.
These bankrupt slanderers are spreading a heap of indecent and malicious fabrications with a bogus document to suggest he owns a house in Ireland. It is apparent that their aim is to damage people’s trust in the JVP and its Leader.
It is evident that they, who have stolen billions of people’s money, built mansions with that money, distributed houses built for masses to their relatives and had to be imprisoned due to the thefts and abuse of public property, are spreading slanders against the JVP and its leaders to pacify their wrath. We totally reject this fabrication. We would take every action against these slanderers. We, as a party, have decided to take legal action against this sordid act. Accordingly, the Leader of the Party Comrade Anura Dissanayaka expects to make a complaint with the IGP. We call upon the people in this country to reject the politically bankrupt gang of thieves that spread indecent and malicious fabrications.
