Police complaint alleges Facebook is insulting President & country

The complaint has been made by Mr. Oshala Herath – a former deputy director of the Presidential Media Unit and an UNP candidate for the Colombo district in the last General Election.

He has pointed out that the reputation of the country and President has been tarnished by inclusion of Ven. Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thero and the Bodu Bala Sena to the list of dangerous individuals and organizations on Facebook.

The Thera is the secretary of the Bodu Bala Sena Organization as well as the Chairman of the Presidential Task Force for ‘One Country, One Law’.

The list includes 3 Sri Lankan organizations and individuals and the other names are LTTE and the Sinhale Jathika Balamuluwa.

However, the extremist outfit – Thowheed Jamaat as well as the terrorist Zahraan Hashim who are directly responsible for the 2019 Easter Sunday bombings, have not been included in this list, Mr. Herath further notes in his complaint.

He notes that all this could lead to disharmony among ethnic groups within the country and create animosity.

“Accordingly, I request that this document of mine be treated as a complaint and that a speedy and impartial inquiry be conducted into this matter and that legal action be taken against Facebook or the responsible officials,” Mr Herath has further noted.

Got 371 strikes when I sent the letter to Senura – Oshala

When we inquired about this complaint from Mr. Herath, he said that before filing a complaint with the police, he had formally informed Attorney-at-Law Senura Abeywardena about this on Dec. 16. “Soon afterwards, my Facebook page, which had received only 05 strikes all throughout this year, got 371 strikes,” he said.

He also said that his personal Facebook Like page connects with over 110,000 people while another of his well known Facebook pages – Sri Lankans for Sri Lanka, has over 550,000 people.
