12 October 2009, Colombo, Sri Lanka: The Centre for Policy Alternatives (CPA) wishes to correct and clarify media reportage of the death threat against its Executive Director, Dr. Paikiasothy Saravanamuttu. CPA is both deeply concerned and appalled at the distortions of the chain of events in the media, particularly the state controlled media, in which it appears that exigencies of government propaganda have dictated a campaign of misrepresentation and vilification against Dr. Saravanamuttu. CPA wishes, therefore, to place on public record the correct facts of the matter, and hopes that this will serve to foreclose any further distortions and misrepresentations.
