Nimalka complains of poster campaign against her

Non Governmental Organizations (NGO) activist and Attorney Nimalka Fernando has complained to the Fort police seeking an inquiry against a poster campaign by unknown persons indicating that puppies were to be sold, giving her contact number in the posters.

Ms. Fernando had told police that the posters had emerged outside the Colombo Fort railway station indicating that puppies are to be sold, after displaying two mobile phone numbers – one belonging to Free Media Movement Secretary Sunil Jayasekara and her mobile numbers in the posters.

She told police that a person who identified himself as a policeman attached to the Fort police’s environmental unit telephoned her asking whether there were puppies for sale. She said the policeman told her not to carry out such a poster campaign in a manner that polluted the environment. She had told policeman that neither was she engaging in such a business nor was she involved in such a poster campaign.

The posters had been put up outside the Fort Railway station displaying the available categories including German shepherd, Rottweiler, Labrador, Bullmastiff and Golden Retriever puppies.

The complainant had asked for an inquiry to take legal action against the persons who were involved in putting up posters as she was severely inconvenienced due to this intentional act.

Filing a B report before Colombo Fort Magistrate Thilina Gamage, the Fort police told that they were unable to detect the persons who put up posters using CCTV camera installed in the proximity of the railway station since the camera had not focused the scene.

Meanwhile, the Magistrate ordered three mobile phone service providers to provide details pertaining to telephone numbers which were alleged to have been used by the persons to contact Ms Nimalka Fernando inquiring about puppies.(Lakmal Sooriyagoda)

    You are appreciated by Western countries when you blame your country, leaders, people, culture etc. Then you encourage and lying as much as possible to get more attention, awards, citizenship, money etc. from them.

    In a corrupt lawless Banana Republic, just for survival the citizens are expected to pretend they are deaf, dumb and blind. But can every one do that, allowing lunatics to run riot in our Democratic Sri Lanka?
