Member of Executive Committee of the National Movement for a Just Society, Priyadarshani Ariyaratne stated that murders similar to that of journalist Jamal Khashoggi happened in Sri Lanka during the 10 – 12 year period before 2015.
She made this statement yesterday (23) at a press briefing held in Colombo.
She went on to say that such incidents were not reported after 2015. However, failing to prosecute the culprits of such murders, abductions and forced disappearances that took place during the Rajapaksa era is a problem, she noted.
In this context, they are using various deceitful methods to regain power, she added.
