Video: Mervyn goes to CID against Gota and Basil

2015-01-17 09:30:42

Former Minister and MP Mervyn Silva today complained to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) against Former Minister and MP Basil Rajapaksa and former Defense Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa over alleged frauds and crimes committed by them.

Mr. Silva told media soon after making a complaint to the CID that he did not want to take revenge from anyone but it was them who took revenge from him.

“I do not want to take revenge from anyone. They are the ones who took revenge from me. I was not given a proper ministry to work. I came to the CID to complain over all the murders such as Bharatha Laksman Premachandra, Lasantha Wikrametunge and the attacks on several private media institutions. It is Gotabhaya Rajapaksa who was behind the white van culture in the country,” he said.

Mr. Silva alleged that MP Basil Rajapaksa who did not have anything before coming to politics had amassed a massive wealth including several hotels and luxury houses.

He also alleged that Basil Rajapaksa withdrew millions of rupees from the Divi Neguma Bill and used the treasury at their will during the election campaign.

 When asked about the allegations leveled against him, Mr. Silva said he was ready to prove his innocence and asked to make any complaint against him.(Sanath Desmond and Ajith Siriwardena)

    You too Brutus?. Good that you brought this up though everyone knows from day one.Recently I watched an old interview of Gota where he was very angry for a question in related to Fonseka and he said " i am telling you I will hang Fonseka". How damn fool he was.If any Gota is the only person should face the international court.

    I find this man disgusting and repulsive. the media needs to take responsibility for encouraging his foolish stunts just so that they could report news. He is an insult to our country and it s intelligence.

    He is a joker alright but he was used for the dirty work and given a free hand to do his own dirty work. Therefore, he has a lot of inside information which he will now bring out to save his skin!

    Many of the politicians in powerful positions during the previous regime in SL were rather ignorant about due process, rules of evidence and rights of individuals to produce witnesses etc This man also needs to be treated to the full extent of the law with no exceptions.
