Assets of state TV to Namal’s channel


 Assets of ‘Rupavahini’ and TNA are being illegally used by Namal Rajapakse to commence broadcasts of Carlton TV channel say employees of ‘Rupavahini.
They say the relevant equipment for broadcasting the channel of President’s son are being fixed on the TNA tower in Sinharaja and two transmitters have been already fixed in a rest room of the employees.
Normally a fee has to be paid when fixing equipment of any other institution on the tower. According to the lease process followed by the TNA and ‘Rupavahini’ an agreement has to be signed for this purpose. However, none of these procedures have been followed in allocating equipment for Mr. Namal Rajapakse’s channel.

Employees of ‘Rupavahini’ channel further say equipment for the Carlton TV channel is being transported to TNA transmitting station in Sinharaja by vehicles that belong to Rupavahini Corporation.
