Tea smallholdings chief on rampage again! Featured

Three employees of the Tea Smallholdings Development Authority have been sent on compulsory leave on charges of sending defamatory publications (Kele Paththara) against the  Authority chairman to his wife.
Deputy Internal Auditor of the authority - K.G. Narada, Deputy General Manager (services) - Amitha Pasquel and Assistant Auditing officer - Chaminda Priyanjith have been sent on compulsory leave in this manner.

Internal sources cite that the Chairman of the Authority - Wijeratne Devagedara was involved in the decision. Devagedara already faces several charges including assaulting an employee.

Devagedara, above law
Earlier this year, Devagedara had assaulted the authority’s Jathika Sevaka Sangamaya branch president - W.V.S. Surasinghe of having sent a letter to his wife against him, and assaulted him in front of other top officials at his room.

He has lodged a complaint regarding the assault to Thalangama police on January 17, but Devagedara had managed to evade giving a statement to the police.

An audio tape of the incident is available with us.
