Hirunika says leaked audio doctored

UNP Parliamentarian Hirunika Premachandra today claimed that one out of the two leaked audios has been doctored to ruin her reputation.

Two audio clips holding conversations between Premachandra and MP Ranjan Ramanayake have gone viral on social media lately.

Premachandra in a video released today said the audio was doctored by those close to Duminda Silva who was sentenced to death for ordering the killings of four individuals including Hirunika’s father Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra.

Premachandra said she was targeted by a certain media channel close to Silva.

“This media channel is trying to create a notion that Silva was given the death sentence in vain. They are trying to ruin my reputation so the public will lose confidence in me,” Premachandra pointed out.

She further highlighted that legal action will be taken against the media organisations behind the release of the doctored audio.

Premachandra also noted that the audios were released to divert the public from real issues in the country.
