COLOMBO (News 1st) – Former parliamentarian Sajin De Vass Gunawardena convened another media briefing today (November 06) and made some startling revelations.
Former UPFA MP, Sajin De Vass Gunawardena:
“Yesterday, I released an audiotape which included information of an attempt by former President Mahinda Rajapaksa to end my and my family’s lives. All of you witnessed it.
After I released it, I saw in the media, that former Minister Susil Premajayanth, a close friend of mine, rejected this claim and made a speech which did not fit his stature, while insulting me at the same time.
I am disheartened at the fact that a stalwart of the SLFP such as him making such comments. Do not do other people’s dirty work, because you are a senior politician. Do you remember, when you were the Minister of Petroleum Resources, you carried out a splendid job?
However, once the former President called me and made me meet you. Try to recall that and try to remember the message I delivered to you? You were asked to resign but you said no and questioned as to why you should resign.
Back then the former President was in possession of a videotape. You and I both know the contents of that videotape. I won’t reveal it to the public since it concerns a member of your family.
However, you almost fainted when you were shown that video. After that, you handed in your resignation. That is when Anura Yapa was appointed the Minister of Petroleum Resources and you took on the portfolio of Science and Technology.
Please do not forget the past. This is the history of the Rajapaksa’s. That is how they blackmailed you back then. Instead of seeking legal action against you, they used me and showed you that videotape and struck fear into you. This is the tactic used by the Rajapaksa’s.”
