Basil To Mediate For Mervyn

Aug 9, 2010 9:11:51 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The Joint Samurdhi Trade Union today (9) announced that Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa has invited Samurdhi officials for a discussion on Wednesday (11) to resolve the dispute created by Deputy Highways Minister Mervyn Silva, who tied a Samurdhi officer to a tree.
Following the incident last week, Samurdhi officers are boycotting of dengue prevention programmes as part of the protest over Silva’s actions.

Silva tied a Samurdhi officer to a tree as punishment for not attending a dengue prevention programme.

Samurdhi officers island wide called on the President intervene in the matter and get Silva to make a public apology for his actions.
