With growing public anger on social media President Maithripala Sirisena’s son-in-law Wewelpanawa Gamage Thilina Suranjith has un-tagged a photo on his Facebook page, which showed him reveling at the recently concluded ‘Sex and Love’ world tour concert of the Spanish music super star Enrique held in Colombo.
President Sirisena went on a rampage accusing the organizers Live Events Pvt Ltd for bringing disrepute to a culturally sensitive Buddhist country when he addressed a gathering in Amapara yesterday.
Iraj Weeraratne the former ‘Tharunayata Hetak’ lackey of Namal Rajapaksa, posted a picture he had taken with the President’s son-in-law soon after the event.
However Thilina Suranjith the Ministry of Defence’s Public Relations Officer’s Facebook page also carried the same photo on the 21st December 2015.
This was found in sandwiched in between the 14th December 2015 where he has shared a post belonging to Gota Ranasinghe and the 23rd December 2015, where Thilina Suranjith has posted a picture about a singing Christmas tree.
Strangely the said photograph is now disappeared.
However Colombo Telegraph managed to save a screen shot of the picture which appears below.
We do not know the reason why these picture were deleted. Was it to stop the angered comments flowing in on social media or was it to hide the fact that the President’s family members ever attended the concert, are reasons which remain debatable.
