Minister Wimal Weerawansa has revealed clear evidence of UNP Parliamentarian Dr. Jayalath Jayawardena’s London tour.
Mr. Weerawansa referred to as to how Dr. Jayawardena denied that he was not in London when the President arrived there, and that he was innocent. He displayed to the media a photograph published in the Asian Tribune website with a report. It clearly depicts how Dr. Wickramabahu Karunaratne and Dr. Jayalath Jayawardena had posed themselves in a photograph with other members of the Tamil diaspora and some of House of Common members during a meeting they had in London. Mr. Weerawansa said that it was after holding discussions about the President’s visit that they had left for Italy. As Dr. Karunaratne takes up the responsibility of the incident, he was there, Dr. Jayawardena knowing of the repercussions, secretly flew to Italy after making all arrangements. The Minister queried whether a country can exist with such traitors.
