Prins Gunasekera no more

Advocate Prins Gunasekera, a parliamentarian who represented the Habaraduwa electorate during the 1960s and 1970s, has passed away.

Born on July 17, 1924, he was 94 years of age when he breathed his last in UK, where he had sought refuge during the 1988-89 violence in Sri Lanka.

Gunasekera, who was noted as symbol of a certain era in the leftist history of Sri Lanka, worked as a lawyer as well as a human rights activist in UK.
