Sujith Mangala appointed as Irudina Chief Editor

Journalist Sujith Mangala de Silva has been appointed as the new chief editor of the weekend publication - Irudina newspaper.

Mr. de Silva, who is considered to be an extremely close associate of Prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, has been appointed by Nalin Jayatillake - the Executive Director of Leader Holdings (Pvt.) Ltd.

He was appointed to the post after the management suddenly terminated the tenure of the newspaper's editor - Wimalanath Weeraratne.

As a mark of protest against this, the editorial staff distanced themselves from duties.
