Parliamentarian Prasanna Ranaweera says he regrets if his actions last week in Parliament had affected any policeman or Government officer.
Ranaweera was seen on TV slapping a policeman and also throwing chili powder towards the policemen.
The Parliamentarian says he is being unfairly accused over the incident by the media.
In a statement today Ranaweera said that since the policemen were in unmarked uniforms he was not sure if they were policemen or United National Party thugs.
However, he said that if they were really policemen then he regrets his actions. (Colombo Gazette)
