From Mahinda’s now defunct Facebook page, which was hilarious
Apparently three chaps have been arrested for sending false rumors over SMS and Facebook. I wonder if it’s those damn 94112512102 buggers that have been bunging up my inbox, though that stuff was pro-Mahinda. The problem with the law here is that it tends to be just another thing to bash people over the head with. I don’t know anything more about this case besides the SMS that came out of Ada Derana. I wonder if they’re also going to crack down on the people that spread false info through Rupavahini and state media. The SMS election spam is a problem and it went both ways. I personally got the most from the MR camp. I wonder who the chaps that got busted are.
I post this mostly because friends immediately called to ask if I was in jail. So I’m not. Any rumors quoted here are clearly labeled as such and doused with salt. Plus I would somehow Twitter if I was in jail.
