Fonseka reporting triggers TID raid on JVP paper

[TamilNet, Friday, 16 October 2009, 20:16 GMT]
Terrorist Investigation Department (TID) of the Sri Lankan Police raided Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna's (JVP) newspaper office "Lanka" Friday around 9:30 p.m. following an article by the paper on alleged rift between Rajapaksa administration and General Sarath Fonseka.

Earlier on Friday, Sri Lankan military spokesman Brigadier Udaya Nanayakara blamed media for 'creating' stories alleging a rift between the Rajapaksa government and General Fonseka.

On July 14th Gen. Fonseka was moved from Commander of the Sri Lanka Army, to the largely ceremonial post of Chief of Defence Staff (CDS).

The office of the Lanka paper is located at Lalkanda in Nugegoda, a suburb of Colombo.
