Swarnavahini & Arjun to start newspaper! Featured

The EAP Media Network, which includes Swarnavahini, is to start publishing several national newspapers starting early next year, according to political sources.

Its managing director Jeewaka Edirisinghe and businessman Arjun Aloysius, who is in the limelight over the Central Bank bond issue, have held several rounds of talks in this regard.

A top personality in the government is backing the project and he has already met with Edirisinghe secretly for a discussion, sources said.

Aloysius is due to leave for London at the weekend to consult several foreign businessmen, with the mediation of a UNP minister, before taking a final decision.

However, EAP Group chairman Mano Tittawella told Sri Lanka Mirror that no decision has been taken to start a newspaper.

Previously, the media reported plans by Aloysius to build a newspaper network with senior journalists Thushara Gunaratne and Upul Joseph Fernando, who had resigned from ‘Mawbima.’
