Investigations have revealed that JVP is directly connected to the attacks carried out on Police Officers at the Free Trade Zone.
Police protection was provided to the recent protest at the Katunayake Free Trade Zone. The Police Officers were unarmed. Our cameras captured stones being hurled at the unarmed Police Officers by unruly persons.
The Police Officers withdrew to protect their lives. The unarmed Police Officers, being ruthlessly attacked by the thugs connected to the JVP has been witnessed. Although weapons could be used, DIG Ravi Wijegunawardena did not resort to such action. He also came under the brutal attack of the hooligans. It has come to light that the JVP is behind these attacks. The authorities have found out that that the activists of their Inter University Students Union have been directly connected to the assault. An activist of the IUSU in the Jayawardenapura University Dulip Prasanka Ranasinghe alias Kura is already recognized to have been directly connected to the incident. The authorities have received information that members of IUSU who resort to such action have been behind the incident. On a decision reached by the politburo of the JVP the thugs in the IUSU are being led to create conflicts with the security forces to create disturbances in the country. The JVP conspiracy was clearly shown by the brutal attack on the unarmed Police force. Meanwhile IUSU has also provided leadership to the recent Bhikku protest near the Temple Tress. The JVP conspiracy was indicated by the fact that a person named Sanjeeva Bandara who is said to be the convener of IUSU and who is released on bail by the Courts led the protest. Information is being received that constant discussions are being held between JVP leaders and those who are connected to violent activities. The Political analysts are of the view that the aim of the JVP is to recreate the terror of 88-90 by joining forces with foreign elements.
