The Sunday Leader office located in Ratmalana was search by armed police officers who had come in a bus a short while ago. The police officers searched the printing press of the office saying they had information that defamatory posters were being printed at the premises.

However staff members at the office said that the police, which included the OIC of the Mt. Lavinia police, did not search the editorial section of the newspaper. The police had a search warrant.

The police had also videoed the printing press of the newspaper. Sunday Leader Editor Federica Janz confirmed to Daily Mirror that the Sunday Leader printing press was searched.

Head of the police elections desk DIG Gamini Navaratna told Daily Mirror online the search operation was carried out following information obtained by the police.  (YP & SD)

    Either when you totally surrender to Chintanaya or totally defeat it. Choice is yours.

    All I can say is that the police are gutless. They know they are doing something wrong but have no backbone to stand up .
    They are a disgrace to the uniform. How can they control real crime.

    will they search any places with such a mighty hurry any printing press engaged in printing defamatory material printed against General Sarath Fonseka?
