TNA MP Sumanthiran requests investigation into false news reported by three leading newspapers  
Wed, Nov 13, 2019, 05:38 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 13, Colombo: Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Media Spokesperson parliamentarian MA Sumanthiran has requested the Election Commission and the Inspector General of Police to investigate into a news report published by three newspapers. 

Derana Aruna on 12th November, Ceylon Today and Mawbima on 13th November have published news reports claiming that MP Sumanthiran has made a statement to the effect that the "Tamil people should vote for Sajith Premadasa in order to defeat the Sinhalese people in the South." 

MP Sumanthiran has been severely criticized on social media for the purported statement. 

MP Sumanthiran unequivocally denying making such a statement has said that the reports are blatant falsehood and requested through legal counsel to open a criminal investigation of an offence under Section 3 of the International Covenant On Civil And Political Rights (ICCPR) Act, No. 56 of 2007. 

"These false reports are a propagation of racial hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence, which amounts to an offence under the ICCPR Act." 

The MP requested the Election Commission and the IGP to immediately investigate the matter and take steps according to law including reporting facts to a Magistrate and apprehending those responsible.

TNA MP Sumanthiran, as lawyer can defend himself. And occasionally defends public interests like in Kalmunai Batti. But, he or other TNA lawyers hesitate to go after the big guns, like forced disappearances or land grabbing.

Why is that ? Oh well, he is a just another politician.

நீங்கள் ராஜபக்ச குடும்ப அரசியல்வாதி அல்லாவிட்டால் பல்லு பிடுங்கிய பாம்பு தான்.  சும்மா உஸ் உஸ் என்று சீறிவிட்டு பெட்டிக்குள் அடங்கி படுக்க வேண்டியது தான்.
