Posted on November 6th, 2015


Minister of Justice Wijedasa Rajapaksa says that he will file legal action against Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka seeking Rs 500 million as damages for the defamatory statement made against him regarding the Avant Garde issue.

    “Nov 05, Colombo: Maldives Police have arrested a Sri Lankan sniper in Maldives days after a sniper rifle bullet was found in the biggest weapons bust in the country’s recent history.

    According to a report in Haveeru Online, the sniper who was arrested a week ago and remains in custody, had served in the Sri Lankan military.

    Maldivian authorities have neither confirmed nor denied the arrest.

    The weapons had been seized from Hibilhadhoo Island in Baa Atoll being developed as a resort.

    The army confirmed Saturday that two assault rifles found in the biggest weapons bust in Maldives’ recent history belonged to the state armory.

    The items showcased during a press conference earlier Saturday included several hand guns, a T56 assault rifle and a MP5 sub-machine gun. In addition, a large quantity of bomb making material were also displayed at the press briefing.

    Security forces cautioned the public Wednesday to be wary of more illegal weapons on the loose.

    Following the discovery of the weapons and explosive devices at two locations, Maldivian President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom Wednesday declared a State of Emergency in all areas of the Maldives for 30 days.”

    ගෝඨාභය ඊනියා යහපාලකයින්ට හිර භාරයට ගත නොහැකි වූයේ, ගෝඨාභය කල්ඇතිව උසාවියෙන් ලබාගත්වා වාරණ නියෝගය නිසයි.
    යමපාලකයින් මෙතෙක් කර ඇති හා තවමත් කරන චරිත ඝාතන වලට වන්දි ගෙවන්නේ කවුද?
    මහින්ද පැරදවීමට මිලියන ගණන් ෆොන්සේකාටත් යුඇන්පියටත් දුන්නේ කවුදැයි හෙලි කලොත් හැමෝගෙම හෙලුව පනේවි.
