Colombo, March 7 ( The Sri Lanka Port Workers’ Union General Secretary Niroshan Gorakahenna told the media on Saturday that the workers are opposed to handing over the port to the Adanis and asserted that the Sri Lanka Ports Authority (SLPA) itself should undertake to build the WCT.
It can do the ECT, it should be able to do the WCT too,” he said and added: Sri Lankan nationalists cannot oppose foreign involvement in the East Container Terminal and allow it in West Teminal. Workers will oppose it. We plan to talk about this to the Chairman of the SLPA on Monday,” Gorakahenna is quoted in Virakesari as saying.

JOHOR BARU (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) – Johor police will be working closely with its Selangor counterpart after death threats were made against state police chief Commissioner Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay.
Datuk Ayob, who was previously head of the Special Branch’s Counter-Terrorism Division (E8) at police headquarters before being promoted to Johor police chief in February this year, said investigations were ongoing to identify the suspect, believed to have links with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).
