Allegations against ex-navy spokesman are false: Gammanpila

2017-07-17 13:08:28

Allegations against ex-navy spokesman D.K.P. Dassanayake are baseless, Pivithuru  Hela Urumaya General Secretary, Udaya Gammanpila said today.

He told a news conference that Commodore Dassanayake was not involved in the abduction and disappearance of 11 youth and the statements made by Police Media Spokesman Ruwan Gunasekara with regard to the allegations were false and baseless.

"I challenge the police media spokesman to an open debate so that I could prove who should be arrested over the allegations made against Commodore Dassanayake," Mr. Gammanpila said.

He said a war hero should not be held responsible so-called abductions and disappearances.

"We are not in a position to defend the accused but we are keen to see that justice is meted out and provide evidence against those who should be arrested," Mr. Gammanpila said. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    I thought he is a lawyer. He is challenging for open debate instead of going to courts to prove innocence of a person charged with crime.

    IF he could prove who should be arrested over the allegations made against Commodore Dassanayake, he should go to court or meet CID and inform - not debate Police Spokesman. OMG how does this joker call himself a lawyer if he does not know the law.

    For this guy everything is false other than what he says. After signing an affidavit accepting that he has stolen the shares, he comes out in the public and says he did not steal the shares. What a liar.

    Is this man the CID? He says that he knows who abducted the youths. Bring criminal charges against him for not reporting this crime for so long.

    Udaya, if you know the allegations are false why don't you go to Courts and reveal the truth. I must remind you when you were with MR you hardly opened your big mouth. Do you think the people in our country are stupid.

    It is in Courts. Court will give judgement. If you think DKP Clear one you can appeal on behalf of DKP.
