Lanka editor ordered to call over at the CID

The Chief Editor of "Lanka Irida Sangrahaya" Chandana Sirimalwatte has been directed to call over at the CID head quarters at 2.00 pm Today in connection with a story published in this week’s issue of the newspaper. Mr. Sirimalwatte said he got this directive on the telephone from a person who identified himself as Inspector Ranjan.

The story related to an alleged plot to assassinate former Chief of Defence Staff General Sarath Fonseka, who is likely to be the common opposition candidate for the Presidential Election.

Police spokes person I. M. Karunaratne said his office had not been informed of this matter and therefore he did not wish to comment.
