Now how credible is this news ?
(December 11, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) Sanath Jayasuriya has been threatened with death by Namal Rajapakse after he had declined an invitation by ‘Tharunyata Hetak’ organization to appear in one of the advertisements they have launched using artistes and others as a part of the election campaign of Mr. Mahinda Rajapakse.
Mr. Namal Rajapakse has invited Sanath Jayasuriya to appear in one of the advertisements. At this Sanath had said he had never directly appeared in any advertisement on behalf of any political party and he would like to maintain his policy. He had politely said that he would not like to appear in the advertisement that would be used for the election campaign.
Mr. Namal Rajapakse had been furious at this and had said, “Don’t you like to play cricket anymore?” Instead of being angry at this Sanath had asked Mr. Rajapakse not to force him to agree for an act he did not like to perform.
However, Sanath had got prepared for a legal process against this act and when Mr. Rajapakse had heard about this he had told Sanath to go to police only if he has given up playing cricket.
The invitation made to Sanath Jayasuriya by ‘Tharunyata Hetak’ organization to take part in the propaganda project supporting Mr. Mahinda Rajapakse was first rejected by him. However, he had taken part in the project due to threats from the organization later.
As this has been revealed the organization has threatened Sanath again to make another public statement denying any threats made to him say these sources.
