SLT affiliate employee suspended over FB posting Featured

An employee of Sri Lanka Telecom affiliate SLT Human Capitals Solutions has been suspended on a charge of posting facebook content to inconvenience the government and its politicians.

The person in question is one K.G.K. Dilshan, a resident of Vijayagama in Beralapanathara, a UNP social media activist during the Rajapaksa regime.

An investigation by Sri Lanka Mirror found the fb posting related to a revelation, including account reports, of a fraud committed by National Youth Council chairman Eranda Weliange.

The suspension came in a letter issued by the company’s head of human resources, administration and legal affairs Divan Ruwanpura, to which position he was promoted from the position of legal manager.

Attempts to contact Ruwanpura failed.

The matter has been brought to the attention of subject minister Harin Fernando.
