Video Footage Emerges Showing Anti-Ranil Faction Armed With Poles At Beginning Of March

The main opposition United National Party released video evidence of the violent clashes in Matara on October 5 which it claimed shows marchers in the anti-Ranil procession carrying poles and blunt weapons handed out to them from a truck in the procession.

UNP MP Mangala Samaraweera has referred to the anti-Ranil marchers as goon squads hired by Kili Rajamahendran who is chairman of the Sirasa Media Network. Samaraweera says the video images released by his media team were visuals the Sirasa Media network was not broadcasting.

The anti-Ranil march that began at the Vishnu Kovil in Matara was led by UNP rebels Maithri Guneratne and Shiral Lakthilake who were recently expelled by the Party.

28 members of the UNP deemed to be supporters of Mangala Samaraweera were arrested by Matara police and will be subject to an identification parade in court today.

Guneratne’s Father Herman Guneratne who video footage shows went on a shooting spree after a pulling a weapon in the midst of the crowds of protestors from his person, is also under arrest but currently in the Merchant Ward of the Colombo National Hospital.

Speculation was rife that Samaraweera who was noticed by the Matara Police to appear at the police station this morning would be arrested within the course of the day.

    Most of these idiots have pregnant tummies.

    They must have too much to eat.

    Bashing each other is okay,

    If they start damaging public or private property , the Law Enforcement some hard on them and any ambitions they have to join in any “Springs” that Mangal has in mind must be nipped in the bud.

      No media is free. They all have their agendas.

      See Colombo Telegraph. It is aligned towards Ranil.

      And we blame other media institutions as being biased.

        Obviously, when we have a media which is supporting a corrupt, murderous regime, and its head is also brandishing weapons, and if all media and institutions in the country supports that stand, what will happen to the citizens of this country – they will be trampled, bashed up and not a soul will raise their finger. Some goons in this country behave and act like they will not budge if their pa and ma are killed – all for money!

    Raja Mahendran or somebody is forced to aligned to MR because he got enough from Mervin & Co earlier. Now Mahendran Co is sucking the balls of Rjapassa family as they have had learned a good lesson. Just to satisfy the royal family they are fully attacking Ranil Co. All these idiots a re biased. Sirasa News have been very boring now, they have no news other than attacking Ranil,Matara incident and CHOGM. Derana is improved a lot.

    Mountain of a molehill. No infighting within UNP.

    Stop creating rumors.

    Mangala is a SLFP spy in the UNP. Kick him out and Rajafucksa will not be able to get any insider information.

    I don’t know who started? However, CT loses credibility for being partial towards Ranil, which is obvious!!! At least 20% of my regard for CT is lost??
    Look at another footage. Very clearly Herman is being attacked with a pole before he shoots! I have never heard of this foolish Herman who like an idiot plays into the hands of rrrr. I don’t know whether he is a Rajapassa goon or not, please see this footage not necessarily a doctored/edited one on CT by the Ranil faction.

    Either way Rajapassa has succeeded in dividing and ruling and as I said before it is obvious that both groups have been funded by Rajapassa! Can we remember when there was an urgent road repair in front of Sirikotha? Who arranged it for whom?? I feel sorry for the poor diehard UNP souls they have no option now but to back Rajapassa the vermin who always wins!
    Subha Anagathayak!
