JVP Attorney-at-Law Sunil Watagala outside the Elections Secretariat, after lodging a complaint with the Elections Commissioner over the fake Facebook page

Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna has written to the Commissioner of Elections complaining about a Facebook page which brings wrong information about the party. JVP General Secretary Tilvyn Silva has written to the Commissioner of Elections Mahinda Deshapriya and has informed that someone is trying to tarnish the JVP’s image very tactfully.

He has also complained that “the fake Facebook page has party’s official address, e-mail, telephone and fax numbers allowing anyone to guess that is an official FB page maintained by the party. The page also carries a fake invoice using the ITN logo.”

He has requested the Commissioner to take actions to remove that bogus FB and to assist them to keep their party’s name clean.
