Justice Minister Wijedasa Rajapaksa has submitted recommendations to President Maithripala Sirisena to revoke the Gazette which has declared Keppetipola Disava, a betrayer.

The then governor of Ceylon Robert Browning issued a Gazette on January 10th, 1818 declaring 19 upcountry leaders including Keppetipola Adikaram as traitors.

The 1818 revolt against the English administration was carried out by these leaders led by Keppetipola.

Minister Rajapakse requested the President to annul the said gazette which kept this group of patriots who fought to save the country from the English as traitors for nearly 200 years.

The minister has also recommended naming the 19 leaders as national heroes.

In addition, minister Rajapakse requested the general public to inform details of the 19 leaders including Keppetipola who led the 1818 revolt or the relatives of such leaders if any.
