Irida Divaina editor apologises from JVP, slams Wimal

Editor of the Irida Divaina - Anura Solomons has apologised with regard to the contents of the lead story in yesterday’s (08) publication.

Solomons has said, “I am Anura Solomons, editor of the Divaina newspaper… We made a mistake and express our deep regret for the matter… We have already apologised to the party and wish to publish a correction in the next week’s edition… Please send us a full page reply we will publish it with prominence… Again I wish to apologise and say that I take responsibility for this,” he has said.

When being asked what can be done if people like Wimal Weerawansa would start harping on this, Solomons had said that people don’t have much regard for what Weerawansa says these days likening his stories to jokes of Samuel Rodrigo.
