Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa today said even the current First Lady could be sued as she was seen distributing ‘Sil Redi’ along with the President a few days ago.

Speaking to journalists in Kandy, Mr. Rajapaksa said he would visit former president’s secretary Lalith Weeratunga who was sentenced to three years rigorous imprisonment.

Mr.Weeratunga was found guilty of misappropriating Rs.600 million belonging to the TRC and using it to distribute ‘Sil Redi’ during the 2015 presidential election campaign. (Chamil Rupasinghe)

    Distributing Sil Redi is not a crime. But doing it using public money is the crime. via DM Android App

    If such "SIL Redi" had been purchased out of public money, yes, but it hasn't, bcos you have enough of trillions already robbed.

    But First Lady genuinely doing it and not during any election period - between nomination and election. As usual twisting everything to cover your sins.

    But it is not election time. The two were found guilty for misappropriation of public funds. You should be charged for attempting to bribe the voters.

    First lady did this good deed spending her own money, not like you robbing and showing you that you are an angel Mahinda.

    Why are you so worked up for the crimes committed by two others? Your utterances and concern shows that you have given instructions to these helpless government officials, who during your time had no backbone to refuse doing things against rules.

    The Crime is not distributing 'Sil Redi', but using The Country's Money in an Individual's Name.
