Video: Wimal rejects allegations

23 February 2015 08:17 am - 25     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}

Former Minister Wimal Weerawansa today rejected the allegations levelled against his wife Shashi Weerawansa as possessing a fake diplomatic passport and said the charge was ‘a complete lie’

He said he would prove that the allegations were false in court.

Addressing journalists outside the CID office in Colombo, Mr. Weerawansa said the Yahapalana Officials had been agitated by the huge turnout at Nugegoda Rally and that therefore they were attempting to end his political career.

 “They would also make allegations against our children in future,” he said. (Sanath Desmond and Lahiru Pothmulla)

    The more lies Weerawansa keeps telling more damage to the public. As such once Court finds him guilty the punishment should be severe and no mercy what-so-ever should be shown.

    He does not even respect his elders which is a SriLankan trait. He dserves. what he gets.

    Now big song and dance about Wimal. Slowly forgetting Duminda and Wele Suda.

    Only cowards and liars throw abuse and allegations but fear to take legal action. If Mr Weerawansa is guilty then, take legal action rather than abuse him. I respect him for backing the armed forces throughout the campaign against the terrorists, till the nation was liberated.

    All media stations in the TV dance on single tune, let alone government institutions. Glad to Daily Mirror at least published his statements.

    one day the True JVPears will teach him a good lesson for betraying a Great Party for his mean politics.

    Isn"t there an end to your lies? You are not even a shade of a gentleman politician. You screamed challenging Govt to arrest your wife. Then when news broke out that she was called to CID, you said you had an arrangement with CID, and enquiry is postponed. What next, Mr Weerawansa? International conspiracy? Ha.Ha.. Ha....

    Mr. Vihiluwansa, Where is your savior? Is he waiting until you go jail to visit U.
