Ashraff supporters refuse to accept crash report 
[18 Jan 2001]

Supporters of the late SLMC leader M.H.M Ashraff, who was killed in a helicopter crash few days before the General Election, staged a protest in Samanthurai on Saturday charging that the report submitted by the       Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) was unacceptable.

Protesters who gathered opposite the Samanthurai Urban Council burnt copies of the report to demonstrate their anger and displeasure.

They said that the report does not make any reference to the black box of the ill-fated helicopter that carried their leader.
