Dilrukshi responds to Avante Garde phone call

21 September 2019 02:28 pm - 12     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Whilst not denying the fact that a conversation took place between Solicitor General Dilrukshi Dias Wickremasinghe and Avant-Garde Chairman Nissanka Senadipathi, Wickremasinghe called for the release of the entire phone conversation between the two parties.

Posting on her Facebook page in the vernacular, Wickremasinghe asked Senadipathi to reveal the name of the "Government Minister" who introduced the two. She also calls on Senadipathi to release the entire phone conversation "instead of the diluted bit". Yesterday, Senadipathi released a conversation between the two in which the former Director-General of the Bribery Commission supposedly apologises to Senadipathi for the closing down of his business as a result of the indictments filed by the Commission.

The Facebook post of Solicitor General Dilrukshi Dias Wickremasinghe said, 'Nissanka Senadhipathi, as a public officer I’m not permitted to make public or press statements. Therefore, please respond to the following.

1. Please publish the entire telephone conversation without editing, doctoring and distorting the contents.

2. Please disclose to the public the name of the minister to whose telephone you called and the reasons why the said minister passed the telephone to me,"

    Obviously this is a doctored version done by experts in singapore. Hence the release of this now instead of doing it earlier and at once when charged. also not disclosed so ar to courts.

    that is your opinion. There are other equally plausible explanations too.

    He he he ... how did you arrive at the conclusion this is doctored? Did you check it? Jeex!

    She has not denied that she gave a call. That proves. She as a responsible offer/prosecutor should not discuss matters with a defendent.

    Who gave the call?

    Madam get permission from AG and reveal the whole conversation. Crooks always manipulate and ministers are also involved in this.

    This is like another Namal Kumara phone drama where the intel officer was put behind bars was falsely accused and was obstructed of doing his duties.

    Senadipathi should accede to her request without further delay.

    This lady has no right to ask for additional info. Her statement that she can make or break the law speaks volumes about her character.

    Geez Bandu please take off your green glasses man!

    Your position is not tenable as public officer - step down with grace and honour.
