I won’t be intimidated by any threats: Speaker

Speaker Karu Jayasuriya said yesterday that he would not be intimidated by any threats or obstacles placed in his way and would safeguard the democracy even by sacrificing his life.

In a statement issued after yesterday’s riotous incidents inside the chamber of the Parliament where UPFA members prevented him
from taking his seat, the Speaker said he earnestly requested the people of the country who loved their motherland to maintain peace in the country.
