Police Media Spokesman Lies that the Court Issued Warrants to Arrest Female Journalist


It is revealed at Moratuwa Magistrate Court that Police Spokesperson Ruwan Gunasekara has lied by saying that a journalist Rekha Tharangani has been issued a warrant after reporting an incident which a suspect has escaped from the courts.
Attorneys appearing on behalf of the journalist have pointed out the facts before the Magistrate court in this regard. However, the magistrate said that the journalist Rekha Tharangani was not summoned to the Moratuwa Chief Magistrate.
The Moratuwa Magistrate then referred the case to the Moratuwa Additional Magistrate Kanishka Wijeratne, and he has been ordered to grant bail with an undertaking of Rs. 25,000 and her to appear the court on the 7th March again.
