VIDEO: Govt’s actions more criminal than the murders - JVP

There is a partnership in the country where there are groups that commit murders and crimes in one side and a system manufactured by the government to protect these murderers in the other, the JVP accused.

Member of Parliament and JVP polit bureau member Anura Kumara Dissanayake claims the government is creating various interpretations and wrong depictions of the shooting incident in Katuwana, Hambantota on Friday (June 15).

He accused the government of engaging activities more “criminal” than the murders itself, following the incident.

Instead of arresting the true perpetrators of the crime, the government is attempting to protect these murderers through government spokespersons, government and police media spokesmen, he charged.

Efforts are being made to protect the murderers and place the responsibility of the incident on other parties, Dissanayake said referring to a statement made by Lakshman Hulugalle, that an “internal dispute” in the JVP was suspected to be the reason for the shooting.

By around 9 p.m. less than two hours after the incident had taken place the Director General of the Media Centre for National Security (MCNS), Lakshman Hulugalle, has declared to media that shooting in Hambantota was a dispute between two JVP groups, he said.

At a time when an underworld gang has opens fire at a public gathering, killing two, injuring and hospitalising several others, he says it was the result of a JVP internal conflict, the parliamentarian expressed.

“We (JVP) challenge Lakshman Hulugalle to reveal to the country what were the observations that were the basis for this (statement),” Anura Kumara said at a press briefing today (17).
