Allegations against ex-navy spokesman D.K.P. Dassanayake are baseless, Pivithuru  Hela Urumaya General Secretary, Udaya Gammanpila said today.

He told a news conference that Commodore Dassanayake was not involved in the abduction and disappearance of 11 youth and the statements made by Police Media Spokesman Ruwan Gunasekara with regard to the allegations were false and baseless.

"I challenge the police media spokesman to an open debate so that I could prove who should be arrested over the allegations made against Commodore Dassanayake," Mr. Gammanpila said.

He said a war hero should not be held responsible so-called abductions and disappearances.

"We are not in a position to defend the accused but we are keen to see that justice is meted out and provide evidence against those who should be arrested," Mr. Gammanpila said. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    He makes wild statements to cheat the public. A big crook who should be sent behind bars.

    Go back to school and learn spelling of TRUTH

    I thought he is a lawyer. He is challenging for open debate instead of going to courts to prove innocence of a person charged with crime.

    Sofia Monday, 17 July 2017 06:15 PM

    IF he could prove who should be arrested over the allegations made against Commodore Dassanayake, he should go to court or meet CID and inform - not debate Police Spokesman. OMG how does this joker call himself a lawyer if he does not know the law.

    For this guy everything is false other than what he says. After signing an affidavit accepting that he has stolen the shares, he comes out in the public and says he did not steal the shares. What a liar.

    Is this man the CID? He says that he knows who abducted the youths. Bring criminal charges against him for not reporting this crime for so long.

    Karthi Monday, 17 July 2017 08:47 PM

    We all know that you too a big hero once upon a time.

    VMS Monday, 17 July 2017 09:25 PM

    Udaya, if you know the allegations are false why don't you go to Courts and reveal the truth. I must remind you when you were with MR you hardly opened your big mouth. Do you think the people in our country are stupid.

    rexjarkie Monday, 17 July 2017 09:45 PM

    Just then disclose who is responsible short and sweet without making it a debate

    SHM Monday, 17 July 2017 10:11 PM

    But the allegation against you cheating an Australian investor is true, what do you say dear Gamanpila?

    Uthaya,Please do not tell the Police what to do.I am sure you might know who really did it.Why don't you help the police?

    TALKER Tuesday, 18 July 2017 03:21 PM

    IF YOU THINK SO -THE MOST HONOURABLE THING IS FOR YOU TO MAKE A STATEMENT TO THE POLICE

    chandradeva Tuesday, 18 July 2017 09:48 PM

    It is in Courts. Court will give judgement. If you think DKP Clear one you can appeal on behalf of DKP.
