By Malinda Seneviratne –
Malaka Silva, son of the Minister of Public Relations and Public Affairs, Mervin Silva, did not attack, hit or injure Major Chandana Pradeep at the JAIC-Hilton, Colombo, along with his friend Rehan and a bunch of others, some of whom were (not) armed. Since there was no assault, it was not captured on CCTV. Malaka Silva is therefore the victim of a monumental and pernicious media drive to vilify him (and his father). And we were all born yesterday.
