Apr 19, Colombo: The Chief Executive Officer of Sri Lanka's extremist Buddhist organization, Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) ,which has been identified as a terrorist organization by Terrorism Research and Analysis Consortium (TRAC) has written to President Mahinda Rajapaksa to inform him about the threats to the organization and its leaders.

Writing personally to the President, CEO of BBS Dilantha Vithanage noted that the government and the President were responsible to any threats to the lives of his and the leader Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thero.

He says in the letter that a conspiracy is underway to arrest him over charges on conspiring to overthrow the government.
