Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - FRONT PAGE - BY DARSHANA SANJEEWA BALASURIYA

The Kollupi­tiya Po­lice recorded a state­ment from a woman at­tached to the Sri Lanka Tourism Devel­op­ment Author­ity (SLTDA) for post­ing an internal com­mu­nique which re­lates to se­cu­rity concerns on so­cial me­dia.

Po­lice Spokesman SP Ruwan Gu­nasekara said the woman, a res­i­dent of Badulla, had pho­tographed the in­ter­nally cir­cu­lated memo and posted it on so­cial me­dia.

He said the let­ter in ques­tion had been sent by a po­lice of­fi­cer to the Di­rec­tor Hu­man Re­sources and Premises Man­age­ment Di­vi­sion of the SLTDA about an im­pend­ing se­cu­rity threat. The Di­rec­tor has then shared that let­ter with di­vi­sion heads of the SLTDA in­ter­nally, in­form­ing them to be vig­i­lant over a pos­si­ble ter­ror attack.

SP Gu­nasek­era said the se­cu­rity forces and the po­lice were look­ing to as­cer­tain the va­lid­ity of the se­cu­rity alert is­sued and added that the case has been handed over to the CID.
