TNL Transmission Tower closing down a violation of TRC Act: Dinesh in the House


Joint Opposition Leader Dinesh Gunawardena has charged that the closing down of the TNL Transmission Tower is a violation of the TRC Act.

He made the charge raising the issue of closing down of the TNL transmission tower in the House under the Standing Order 27 (2) on Friday.

He stated that due notice had not been given when closing down the TNL transmission tower. President was only entitled to keep the Defence Ministry and Environment and Mahaweli Development Ministry under him as per the 19th Amendment. President making appointments in other institutions is questionable. President's appointment of the TRC Director General could be questioned.

He said: "TNL has been taken to courts this morning and we do not know what will become of it in the next few days. How could the CID officers enter the transmitting station forcibly and seal the transmitting station? We are not under a dictatorship.

We don't care about the political ideologies of TNL Chief Shan Wickremesinghe, but we are concerned about the fate the media is suffering. TNL produced several presenters such as Buddhika Pathirana, who is an MP today."
