Gamini Jayalath Dinamina Acting Editor
‘Dinamina’, the flagship Sinhala daily of Lake House group has an acting editor appointed, following the promotion of the predecessor as the consultant editor for all publications.
Associate editor Gamini Jayalath, also an actor in tele dramas, has been posted to the position on an acting capacity, said editorial director Seelaratne Senarath.
However, a member of the ‘Dinamina’ editorial said they were unaware of Mr. Jayalath’s appointment to succeed Mahinda Abeysundara on a temporary basiss.
The editorial member also said she saw Mr. Abeysundara in the editor’s seat late into the night yesterday (Mar. 27).
According to Lake House sources, the consultant editor position given to Mr. Abeysundara is only a nominal one, and that the change in the post is due to recent trouble at the newspaper.
