A letter has been sent to media heads inviting them for a briefing by the President on a date that’s long passed.
The invitation, signed by Dharmasiri Bandara Ekanayake, Senior Media Director to the President, states, ’the President will chair a Media Briefing for the heads of Media Institutions, Newspaper Editors and Directors of Electronic Media Institutions at 8.30 am on Wednesday the 26th January 2017 at the President’s House.’
The letter has been dated ‘Jan. 24, 2018.’ Clearly whoever drafted the letter has used an old template and not done the necessary changes.
The Presidential Media Division has three directors in addition to Ekanayake, namely Chaminda Sirimalwatte, Chamuditha Samarawickrama and Sugeeswara Senadheera.
