Police have searched United National Party (UNP) Deputy Leader Karu Jayasuriya’s wife’s ancestral home late last night for ‘arms and ‘other articles of a defamatory nature’ but had found nothing, Jayasuriya told Daily Mirror online.
Speaking to Daily Mirror online, Deputy Leader Jayasuriya explained that the premises situated in Ranmuthugala, Kadawatha was occupied by his wife’s brother but was being temporarily used as the office for George Perera; the area coordinator for the common opposition candidate General Sarath Fonseka. (RR)
Deputy Leader Jayasuriya said that he had been shocked to receive reports that a police team armed with a search warrant had entered the premises looking for weapons and other articles.
He said however that this was the not the first time that tactics of this low nature had been employed by the government, and said that he hoped an end to incidents of this nature would come soon.
They were searching for "Hidden Weapons". It's the national game of SL Police !.

if this government comes to power and continue this undemocratic behaviour, not abeying orders given by the superim court of this country (e.g not to use state resources and media for their election propganda) .. i am sure there will be uprise from the public and lead to an unrest in this country. MR and the government will try to convince people that the terrorism is not yet over and will try be in power for the second based on that theme. The way the government trying to threaten people, business comunity for supporting opposition is very undemocratic and signs of a dictatorship.
