Video: Fonseka’s Key Aide Quits, Accuses Former General Of Killing Sunday Leader Editor

Former Army Chief Sarath Fonseka‘s Media Coordinator quit the party in a blaze of publicity today, slamming his ex-boss for ruthless and authoritarian tactics and alleging that he had killed Sunday Leader Editor Lasantha Wickrematunga.



Sanjeewa Samarasinghe told a press conference in Colombo today that was repeatedly disrupted by Fonseka’s Democratic Party members that the former Army Chief had run the party with a dictatorial style.

He said that it was clear Fonseka had been responsible for the murder of the Sunday Leader Editor Lasantha Wickrematunge in January 2009.

Several Fonseka party members sat amidst media personnel and repeatedly challenged Samarasinghe’s claims.

Later in the day, the Democratic Party hit back, saying that Samarasinghe had been sacked over his embezzlement of Rs 50000 and was now attempting to exact revenge. Samarasinghe has been with Fonseka’s party since the former Army Chief’s release from prison in 2012.

    But I always thought Mervyn the Kudu King was responsible for killing Lasantha.
