Colombo (News 1st); Venerable Pahiyangala Ananda Sagara Thero on Tuesday (09) filed a complaint with the Police Headquarters claiming he is receiving death threats for opposing environmental destruction.

“The intelligence services, as well as the police and CID, are gathering information about us in order to tarnish our reputation,” the Venerable Thero told reporters.

The Venerable Thero said there is a serious concern as to who is conducting surveillance impersonating police officers and warned this could also be an attempt to bring back the underworld and the white van culture.

He also said since he continuously opposed the destruction caused to the environment under the present government, he is also facing threats adding the President and the Government must listen to the issues raised by activists.

“If we are killed, more will people will rise for our cause,” said Venerable Pahiyangala Ananda Sagara Thero.
