Azwer received threatening call

Presidential Advisor and Media Ombudsman A.H.M. Azwer has complained to Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa of a threatening phone call made to him after he relayed a message to the Muslims of Colombo over a SLBC Tamil Radio programme.

In his letter Azwer said on Sunday (9/11) he received a phone call around 9.30 p.m. by a person who said "What happened to Alfred Duraiappah would happen to you and Alavi Mawlana soon."

This threatening call was as a result of his relaying a message to the Muslims of Colombo on 07.11.2008 live on 'Wasantham' SLBC after attending the D.A. Rajapaksa commemoration ceremony at Tangalle. (with the participation of President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Governor of the Western Province Alavi Mowlana proceeded him in the same 'live' broadcast.

They had to do this since they received several phone calls from Colombo alleging that certain elements were distributing anonymous and scurrilous notices forcing shop keepers to close their shops in Maradana, Pettah etc.

He appealed to the Defence Secretary to order the authorities concerned to institute an immediate probe regarding the above threatening telephone call, (number provided) and bring the culprits to book.
