A provincial correspondent of the Daily Mirror newspaper lodged a complaint with the Ampara police today claiming he was threatened over the phone by the former Director of the Civil Defence Force Rear Admiral (Rtd) Sarath Weerasekera. Wasantha Chandrapala had contacted Sarath Weerasekera to get a comment over an incident in Ampara when he was allegedly threatened.

However when contacted by Daily Mirror online Sarath Weerasekera denied the charge that he had threatened the journalist and instead accused the scribe of attempting to create disharmony among the communities.
 

He further claimed Chandrapala was a person who made life hard for others and that he was involved in printing poster and leaflets that were defamatory. 
 

Moreover Admiral Weerasekera added that he had tried to set an example through his election campaign and that he had no need to threaten the reporter.  (Daily Mirror online)
