Bandula, Callum in twitter war

2014 Jan 11

Bandula JayasekaraSri Lanka’s Consul General in New South Wales Bandula Jayasekera and British journalist Callum Macrae were involved in a twitter war on the Sri Lankan issue.
Jayasekera accused Macrae of working for Adele Balasingham, the wife of former LTTE theoretician Anton Balasingham, which Macrae strongly refuted.

The Sri Lankan Consul General also claimed that Macrae, the producer of the ‘No Fire Zone’ series, is the “propaganda chief” of the LTTE.

“Truth always hurts @Callum_Macrae and he cringes when exposed of his very close connections with terrorist in London Adel Balasingham,” Jayasekera said in a tweet.

Macrae responded by saying he never met Adel Balasingham in his life and accused Jaysekera of being involved in ludicrous propaganda.

“Please grow up,” Macrae told Jayasekera. (Colombo Gazette)
