Dilith to buy ‘bond newspaper’ Featured

Ada Derana channel and Triad Advertising chairman Dilith Jayaweera is at talks to buy the ‘Janayugaya’, aka bond newspaper, owned by Arjun Aloysius.

As the first step, Dilith has agreed to buy the newspaper’s modern printing press.

‘Janayugaya’, started with a massive investment, had to be closed down after the Central Bank’s financial intelligence unit froze the bank accounts belonging to all 28 companies of Arjun’s Perpetual Treasuries group due to the accusations he is facing over the CB bond auction.

Dilith hopes to start the newspaper by renaming it as ‘Derana’ and also to start an English newspaper as well, for which he has conducted discussions with a senior female journalist.

Dilith’s Triad is in charge of the UNP’s propaganda campaign for the upcoming local government polls.
