Protest against threat to ‘Lankadeepa’ correspondent

Members of nine media associations staged a protest in front of Matara main bus stand this morning (Sept. 03) to condemn a reported death threat on a colleague.

Southern provincial councillor Aruna Gunaratne has allegedly threatened ‘Lankadeepa’ correspondent Krishan Jeewaka Jayaruk over the phone that he would be killed.

The journalist has lodged a complaint with Matara Police.

However, the SPC member has said he had only inquired the newspaper correspondent about not consulting him before publishing an article to say that his house has been robbed.

The recorded audio of the conversation between the two is now available on the internet.
