Former Police Spokesman Prishantha Jayakody who arrived in Sri Lanka today has said that he is willing to give evidence on white van abductions that were taking place during the Rajapaksa regime.
Speaking to the media, Jayakody had said that he was forced to flee to Australia due to threats by former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa.
“I was compelled to leave due to the severe political pressure I faced. When I refused to carry out their orders, I received death threats from Gotabaya and his henchmen,” he said adding even while he was residing in Australia, he was being threatened but added that the Australian government was proactive in providing protection for him.
Jayakody was suspended from service in 2013 after he abruptly left the country to Australia.
