“There is no point slinging mud at Mr. Samaraweera if he had made a false statement or divulged State secrets,” Perera said.
He said Mr. Samaraweea had not divulged any State secrets as he had only named few officers attached to the defense fraternity and intelligence.
Mr. Perera said that everyone, who had followed current affairs, is aware that the persons whose names were mentioned by his colleague were involved in the defence sector in the country.
Mr. Samawraweera in a recent media conference accused that some officers whom he named were involved in the recent clashes in Aluthgama and Beruwela.
MP Ajith Perera said that the allegations made by Mr. Samaraweera were true, as neither the government, the Police Spokesman nor the Military Spokesman had denied it to date
