Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa and former Defense Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa have been asked to report to the Bribery Commission (BC) this week to record statements over various allegations against them, highly placed sources said.

They said Gotabhaya Rajapaksa was asked to report to the BC on Wednesday, April 22 and 23 while the former President was asked to report to the BC on Friday, April 24.

Daily Mirror learns that the BC will record a statement from the former President over the fraudulent document produced by former Health Minister Tissa Attanayake in an attempt to sling mud at President Maithripala Sirisena and Premier Ranil Wickremesinghe in the run-up to the presidential election.

He is also to be questioned about a fresh ministerial post granted to Mr. Attanayake  no sooner he joined the previous government after quitting the UNP of which he was the General Secretary.

Sources said, a statement would be recorded from the former Defence Secretary Defense over certain matters pertaining to his tenure as a Director of several leading institutions.

This is apart from the statement to be recorded from him on a later date with regard to the Avant Garde floating armoury in Galle.

Meanwhile, unconfirmed reports stated that former Economic Development Minister who is scheduled to return to the country tomorrow would also be summoned by the BC to record statements over several complaints against him. (Kurulu Koojana Kariyakarawana)

    Yahapalana Govt getting ready for elections. Yahapalana Govt couldnt do anything significant for the country so they are trying to harass MR targeting elections. This will make MR more and more popular.

    truefacts4U Monday, 20 April 2015 09:17 PM

    Agreed ,,,,,, sadly if all corruption charges to be investigated it will take several years. Looks like MR and company will become regulars at the BC.

    truefacts4U Monday, 20 April 2015 09:28 PM

    Who made false accusations ?........ Please tell us what they are ??? Development projects has stopped..... It is time to develop your mind so you will see the full picture.

    Yahapala Monday, 20 April 2015 08:25 AM

    Why not Chandrika...? Why not all corrupted politicians in 1978 UNP Gvt.....? Why only MR and Gota...? Is this the so called YAHAPALANAYA...?

    Yan Monday, 20 April 2015 08:26 AM

    Arrest them and hang them!!!!

    truefacts4U Monday, 20 April 2015 09:38 PM

    This is truly good governance, a true path to democracy. Politicians summoned to BC is practiced everyday in developed nations with no reference to their political cloud, those who think this is inappropriate can crawl under the same stone where you got out of.

    Karma Monday, 20 April 2015 08:33 AM

    Any one and everyone is subject to Karma based on what they did , what they did not do when they actually could have. MR, MY3, GR and ME ( myself) are no exception . Blessing from the Triple Gem for all and everybody .

    Hiran Monday, 20 April 2015 03:07 PM

    Yes, he gave the political leadership to defeat the LTTE. But that is not an excuse for plundering the peoples wealth.

    de silva Monday, 20 April 2015 12:44 PM

    If the BC has summoned them there must be reasoble problems that has to inquired and why is this fuss.If they have not done anything wrong then what is this kalabala.Basil should be taken in to custody as soon as he arrives and then brought to BC foe questioning.Otherwise he will prepare bogus documents with the help of other culprits.

    Thanga Monday, 20 April 2015 09:00 AM

    . The wheel of justice has turned a full circle!

    DJ Monday, 20 April 2015 09:04 AM

    Enough of statements the evidence is very clear. Just look at the abuse of Srilankan airlines, loans from BOC, building and palaces, election violations, property ownership etc., any other country with reasonable logic would have had these guys behind bars by now

    raj Monday, 20 April 2015 10:39 PM

    it proves that no one is above law as long as Mithiri is president of Sri Lanka.

    Gamini Monday, 20 April 2015 01:08 PM

    kanga Monday, 20 April 2015 03:44 PM

    Personalities do not matter President or a simple simon should be brought to book if he is corrupt.There is the independent judiciary they can go to unlike Mahinda,s time.If evidence is there to be found they will punished.That is the practice of true democracy.

    Senator Monday, 20 April 2015 10:58 PM

    What about the top man who went to the other side?

    Love Lanka Monday, 20 April 2015 01:21 PM

    My3 came into power making false accusations... of which non have been proved so far.Many development projects in the country has stopped. TNA is actively working with TN again.The only politician in Sri Lankan history to be prosecuted by CB is now the finance minister.Rakna Lanka which generated vast amounts of foreign income through sea marshaling is not allowed to carry on business as usual.list keeps goingWe are an ungrateful nation of people.... so sad

    channa Monday, 20 April 2015 03:57 PM

    You idiot where were you when LTTE is destroying whole country

    Blessing from the Triple Gem can be showered. But when the results of bad Karma come not even the Buddha could help save the sinners.

    acs Monday, 20 April 2015 01:52 PM

    Yahapalana govt doesnt need to do anything. Just chasing this corrupt family and their henchmen was enough.

    Kumara Monday, 20 April 2015 11:09 AM
