Correction to the Article appeared on 3rd January 2013 under Caption Siripala, Wickremasinghe and the Validity of Parliament’s Interpretation of the Constitution
I refer to the e-article appearing in the Colombo Telegraph of 3rd January 2013 under the caption “Siripala, Wickremasinghe and the Validity of Parliament’s Interpretation of the Constitution” by Elmore Perera.
In the last paragraph of the said article the writer has stated, among other matters, that “OPA earnestly urges the President,..” The reference to the OPA is wrong and incorrect as the OPA has not made such a request or ‘urged in earnest’ on the subject referred to. I wish to add further that the views expressed by the writer are his personal views and not the views of the OPA. Views of the OPA can be expressed to the media only by the President of the OPA after obtaining approval from the Executive Council and no other person, whether such person is a past president or a person who ceased to be the holder of the post of president due to a no-confidence motion been passed against him can express the views of the OPA.
I shall thank you to correct the reference made to the OPA.
