New Left Front Leader Dr. Wickramabahu Karunaratne today lodged a complaint at the Human Rights Commission alleging that that he and his party members were attacked at the airport earlier this month after he arrived in the island from the UK.
Dr. Karunaratne said that his right as a Sri Lankan citizen to enter the country had been violated when he was assaulted on his return from the United Kingdom. “I will pursue the matter further,” he said. 

Wickramabahu said that though he had complained to the authorities no action had been taken so far. “I complained to the IGP and the DIG of the air port police, they agreed to provide me and my party members with security but they have done nothing so far,” he said.

Dr. Wickramabahu was attacked at the airport after he returned from London after allegedly attending a LTTE (Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam) Mahaveer Day celebration in London were he made a speech at the event.  (Nabeela Hussain)
