Weerawansa accuses Nalaka de Silva of betrayal Featured

MP Wimal Weerawansa accuses former DIG of the TID Nalaka de Silva of having betrayed an operation by the Army intelligence to trace northern youths, who have become active, according to lankanewsweb.

Participating yesterday (24) in a signature collection for a petition demanding a general election, Weerawansa said he was making the revelation as the Army intelligence has found a regrouping of the LTTE in the past three and a half years.

According to him, the Army intelligence created a dummy LTTE with rehabilitated members, through which the regrouping members and their connections with the diaspora were found.

|Since the Army intelligence has no powers to arrest suspects, the information gathered was submitted to the Security Council and also handed over to ex-DIG de Silva, only to find them being leaked to the media less than a week later, Weerawansa said.
