The Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) says the United National Party (UNP) is protecting the killers of journalists Lasantha Wickremetunga and Prageeth Eknaligoda.
United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) MP and SLPP member Roshan Ranasinghe said that the killers of Wickremetunga and Eknaligoda are with the UNP.
Wickremetunga was killed in January 2009 while Eknaligoda was reported missing in January 2010.
Ranasinghe said that if the Government properly investigates the incidents as well as attacks on Muslims, they will find that those involved are with the Government. (Colombo Gazette)
