SLFP calls for explanation from Samaraweera

[TamilNet, Sunday, 15 July 2007, 12:26 GMT]
The Disciplinary Committee of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP), main constituent of the ruling United peoples freedom Alliance (UPFA), has called Mr. Mangala Samaraweera for his written explanation as to why he should not be subjected to inquiry for violating party discipline, political sources in Colombo said.

Sacked ministers Mr.Mangala Samaraweera and Mr.Sripathi Sooriyarachchi crossed over to the opposition few months ago and later formed a new political group called SLFP-Peoples Wing.

Mr.Sooriayarachchi was asked to appear before the party disciplinary committee on July 14.

But he wanted time to attend the committee hearing.

Now the party has asked Mr. Sooriyarachchi to appear before the committee on August 4, sources said.
