Lanka Democratic Movement Condemns Attack on Social Media Activist and Calls for Justice

The attack on social media activist Piyath Nikeshala by a group led by the Deputy Mayor of Kaduwela has sparked outrage in Sri Lanka. The incident, which took place on May 10th, has drawn strong condemnation from the Lanka Democratic Movement (LDM), who are calling for a thorough investigation into the matter and for those responsible to be brought to justice.

The LDM has expressed concern that attacks on activists and journalists are becoming increasingly common in the country. The movement is urging the Sri Lankan government to take all necessary measures to ensure the safety of those who speak out against injustices and to protect freedom of expression.

The Deputy Mayor of Kaduwela is known to be a close associate of the Rajapaksa family, and the incident has raised questions about the political thuggery prevalent in the country. The LDM is calling for the Deputy Mayor to be held accountable for the attack on Nikeshala, and is urging President Ranil Wickremesinghe and the government to take immediate action to ensure that justice is served.

The LDM is closely watching the stance taken by the President on this incident and is calling on him to demonstrate his commitment to upholding the rule of law and protecting freedom of expression in Sri Lanka. The movement stands in solidarity with Nikeshala and his family during this difficult time and wishes him a speedy recovery.
