UNP Central Provincial Councilor Renuka Herath said that she would sue Minister S.B. Dissanayake for his statement which alleged that Renuka Herath interfered in convicting the suspects of the Walapane mass murder case in 1988.
A group of inmates of Bogambara prison staged a hunger strike on a roof top recently charging that Minister Dissanayake had intervened to obtain presidential pardon for a selected few prisoners.
However Minister Dissanayake mentioned the name of Renuka Herath during a speech to a public gathering in Udu Nuwara recently.
Central Provincial Councilor Renuka Herath convened a media briefing in Kandy today to reply Minister Dissanayake’s claims.
She said journalists that the Minister’s statement had damaged her good name therefore she would take legal actions against Minister Dissanayake soon.
