SJB discussed PCoI with Opposition groups – Premadasa
By Buddhika Samaraweera
Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa emphasised that the Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) had held discussions with several groups, representing the Opposition in the recent days and none of them were related to any political issue.
He said, although various parties had circulated rumors in this regard, the discussions were based on steps to be taken regarding the final report of the Presidential Commission of Inquiry (PCoI) on Political Victimisation.
He added that discussions were held with politicians belonging to several groups representing the Opposition including the United National Party (UNP).
“We discussed with several political parties and groups. But that was only to protect democracy. No other political matters were discussed during those talks, he noted.
Premadasa was speaking at a Media briefing at the Opposition Leader’s Office in Colombo yesterday (18).
