Publication of 'The Sunday Leader' halted

The Sunday Leader newspaper published by Leader Publications has decided to halt publication of the paper, Sri Lanka Mirror learns.

The reasons cited for the halting of publication is said to be financial difficulties.

 Publication of the Sinhala newspaper ‘Irudina’  too has been halted.

 It was earlier reported that former Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake who was implicated in a Bond scam issue was a shareholder of this publishing institute.

However, when Sri Lanka Mirror contacted the Chief Editor of the Sunday Leader Easwaran Ratnam regarding this matter, he said publication of the newspaper has only been stopped for this week and said there was no decision so far to stop the publication of the Leader permanently.
