UNP parliamentarian says his life is under threat

[TamilNet, Saturday, 17 October 2009, 15:05 GMT]
Sri Lanka opposition United National Party (UNP) parliamentarian Mr. Palitha Ranga Bandara informed the Speaker Friday that "cadres of an armed political group based in eastern province have been sent to Colombo to harm him. A gang of masked men in motor bikes have been already following me wherever I go," Mr. Bandara, who represents Puttalam district in the West coast of Sri Lanka stated in a letter addressed to the Speaker Mr.W.M.J. Lokkubandara.

Bandara added that he believes the information is very reliable as he had experiences with political crimes in the past which all have all been proved correct.

“Though the late political leaders such as Janaka Perera, MPs T. Maheswaran and Raviraj also informed threats to their lives in advance to you, but the State did not provide any protection and this resulted in their assassinations. Hence I appeal to you not to allow the same thing happen to me,” he said in the letter to the Speaker.
