I left Sri Lanka because of threats from Gota: Ex-SSP Jayakody
Former Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) and Police Media Spokesman Prishantha Jayakody,who arrived from Australia a short while ago, claimed that he fled the country because of threats by former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa and some of his henchmen.
He said he was compelled to leave under political pressure and fears for his life.
“I served as the Police Media Spokesman and as Ratnapura SSP in Ratnapura but I had to leave the country because of severe political pressure I faced. When I refused succumb to these pressures I received death threats from former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa and some of his sycophants.I’m back after one year and seven months because there is good governance now and I believe things will be different with the situation in the country turning to the better,” he said.
Mr. Jayakody said that even while in Australia he received threats but the Australian government had been proactive in providing protection and keeping him secure.
He said he expressed his appreciation and gratitude before leaving Australia.

Has this man got any evidence of the wild allegations? If he does, he should present them to the IGP without delay.
Also, is he getting his job back? There are many youth who can do his job. We should give them the first opportunity.
These type of people not doing anything to the country. One person reveled investigators identities earlier and allowed terrorists to kill.
This man is trying for another era.
Taking personal revenge over country’s dignity and values cant take as lightly.
This news might be a good selling item for media. But it will sell the country and sell some good people who tried correctly on demand.
I hope people of sri lanka will react to this type of idiots to stay away rather than coming back.
Now sri lankan people would know how the mahindas biggest corruption gov treated these high profile gov officers .if any one who is not dancing to mahindas family rythem subsequently they are threaten to death or have to face false allegations on them.
There are many more cases in the same trend n all educated people in sl never prefer for which mahindas gruesome governance.
