The Convener of the Truth Seekers Organisation, Attorney Premanath C. Dolewatta, yesterday (26), lodged a complaint with the Police Department urging it to institute legal action against UNP Parliamentarian Hesha Vithanage.

Dolewatta has complained that in a statement reportedly made by Vithanage, at a public rally held in Matugama on 24 September, he had vowed that once UNP Deputy Leader and Minister Sajith Premadasa is declared the winner of the coming Presidential Poll, the UNP will force Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna Presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa to don a prison jumper.

He said that such demeaning and derogatory comments targeting Rajapaksa had tarred the independence of the country’s judiciary and the Attorney General’s Department.

He has said that hence the Police should launch a swift probe into Vithanage’s controversial remarks.

The complaint has been lodged by Dolewatta under the heading ‘influencing the judiciary’.

He had also said that the issuance of such threatening remarks is a serious situation.

He had said that voters, who are preparing to cast their votes according to their wishes at the 16 November Presidential Poll, could be forced to think twice before heading to the polling booths due to threats issued by the MP concerned.
