United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) MP Malani Fonseka accused Deputy Minister of Justice Sujeewa Senasinghe of abusive remarks even involving her personal life.
She, at a press conference, called by the UPFAs pressing for a change in the opposition leader post, said it was unbecoming of the Deputy Justice Minister to make such insulting remarks at a woman MP.
The verbal attack took place during the tense situation erupted in the House after cross talks over the opposition leader post.
Besides, other party leaders such as Vasudeva Nanayakkara also condemned this incident
Meanwhile Deputy Minister Sujeewa Senasinghe today denied the claim made by MP Malini Fonseka that she was verbally abused by him inside the chambers.
"It was Ms. Fonseka who used unparliamentary language on me and called me names. I did not respond following the advice given to me by some of my Parliamentary colleagues," He said.
The deputy minister said he is ready to face any inquiry on the matter. (Kelum Bandara and Yohan Perera)

There was a Minister of Justice, an appointee of the previous regime, who without a shame appeared before a Magistrate as an accused in a criminal case involving allegedly damaging property belonging to the State, and paid a fine as well, according to the media, and such was was only one example of the standard of behavior set by one so called honorable and senior politician in SL, What a disgrace?

Malini should not think the Parliament is also a theatre and begin performing her histrionics although there are non-artistes there performing much better than real actors!

We heard about a similar incident in a PC in the south some time ago involving another aging actress. Are they becoming short tempered with advancing age.

Actresses should confine their role to that without getting into roles that makes them political misfits.

malini is a world renowned actress. just because sujeewa hails from a well to do family and gone to en elite school doesnt mean he is a gentleman. anyone who has watched him in a political debate on tv would know how primitive his behaviour is, yahapalakayos turning eye a blind eye to their faults as usual.

I feel only shame about majority of the English educated minority of our Country, because they seem to have no rich cultural and social values...just carefully read through above comments....they are real souls only with commercial value... what a shame...
frank hilary Thursday, 09 April 2015 11:43 AM
Yes ! Malini should answer this important question.
Bala Thursday, 09 April 2015 11:43 AM
It was not Sujeewa but his bro from UK

I recall Sujeewa had a ruffle with Malaka sometime ago about an escort. So he is not clean either!

We have never heard these politicians behaving in a decent manner.They all have become third class politicians because we have selected them as our representatives.After all the female actors in this country should have kept their dignity if they did not enter politics.But they are so poor that they have to enter politics to earn something,getting salaries from the public.We must learn all these third class people a lesson this time.

Sujeewa talks the truth and he is very frank, everyone knows who is Malini?
Horri Jimonis Wednesday, 08 April 2015 11:10 PM
Sujeewa is a gentlemen as far as I know. He is someone special in the UNP. Malini ofcourse, an actress who could twist everything in the wrong manner. Take it easy!!!
kk Thursday, 09 April 2015 09:52 AM
This Sujeewea always tell lies, he does not know how to respect to eldery woman
Vijith Pieterz Wednesday, 08 April 2015 11:18 PM
Malini is old now and loses her temper for nothing. She should retire and be at home and rest.
