Printing press raided over ‘defamatory’ book on Mahinda

August 5, 2015   01:38 pm

Police today raided a printing press which had allegedly been printing a slanderous book targeting former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, who is contesting the forthcoming General Election. 

The press in question is located at Divulapitiya Road in Boralesgamuwa while its owner had informed police that a certain “RMR Printers” had given them the order to print the books, Ada Derana reporter said. 

 Police had then proceeded to raid the RMR Printing Press which is located at Kadawata Road in Pepiliyana and had seized the printing machines and other equipment. 

Meanwhile UPFA Western Provincial Council member Roger Seneviratne claims that the publisher of the book is listed as N. Wickramaratne and that his address is No. 400, Pita Kotte Road, Kotte.

He further said that the entire country knows the above-mentioned address and alleged that the United National Party (UNP) has fallen to the level of slinging mud at a leader who saved the country due to the fear of defeat at the polls.
