recording tape has been made to match Gen. Fonseka’s voice

JVP M.P. Anura Kumara Dissanayake told media that from the high places of the Govt. arrangements are being made to prepare a bogus voice recording to match the voice of Gen. Sarath fonseka purporting to be statements of Gen. Fonseka made to Sunday Leader Editor on the 13th.

Despite the General making it abundantly clear on the following day itself that the statements attributed to him were not made by him and were misleading, the Govt. had been blowing this episode out of proportion to cash in on it.

The Sunday Leader Editor had been challenged two weeks ago to reveal the recording to corroborate her report, but so far there has been no response. As the opposition is intensifying the pressure for the recording, the Govt. is seeking to prepare a bogus recording. As the govt. can mislead with a portion of the recording by bogus voicing, the Opposition has demanded that the whole recording be forwarded, Dissanayake noted.
