Kaduwela Magistrate and Additional District Judge Prasanna Alvis ordered that the Financial Crimes Investigations Division (FCID) would be given three weeks time to hand over the 2010 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 luxury vehicle that belonged to MP Namal Rajapaksa initially and later sold to someone else.

The vehicle had allegedly been bought by another party and the judge ordered to hand it over to the owners.

The Magistrate ordered so when the case was taken up for hearing today.

This vehicle had been found in a garage in Homagama nearly a year ago and it had been taken into custody by the FCID officers.

This Duty-Free vehicle had been obtained by MP Namal Rajapaksa and used for five years and had been sold at Rs.8.5 million in the Kaduwela area.

Later, it had been kept in a garage.

When the case was heard, Attorney- at- Law Premanath Dolawatte who appeared for the accused said that the vehicle in question was rusting in the Financial Crimes Investigations Division and requested it to be given to her.

Accordingly the judge has ordered to release it.

However so far, MP Namal Rajapaksa’s name has not been mentioned as a suspect and the Attorney said that if necessary, he could be presented in the Court. (Irangi Edirisinghe and Gunawathy Illankakoon)

    This guy never even did a clerks job in his life but owns a Ford Mustang. What a country we live in.

    Amar Friday, 04 August 2017 08:41 AM

    Well, like father like son. People who vote for these kind of thugs are only to be blamed. He should be never allowed to enter the parliament again but we Srilankans are very forgetful, unfortunately.

    For Namal this 8.5 million is just pea nuts, because all he and his family earned were easy looted money in billions.

    Aladeniya Kirimathaya Friday, 04 August 2017 08:52 AM

    This was a toy car for Namal baby, he has many Luxury cars even now.

    L. P. Mendis Friday, 04 August 2017 08:54 AM

    For a fellow like Namal going to Nuwara-Eliya by Helicopter for horse riding daily, these cars are nothing, my God what a lot of damage the whole family did for our county.

    Left and right Rajapakshe family played out, that is the curse for our nation still.

    Ultimately, Rajapaksa's are found not guilty and Yamapalakas and found guilty. Today DM cover page is the best proof.

    Will the tax dept follow up whether he has declared all income in order to afford to pay and buy all these items including his properties - Tax dept please respond. Also - How about his decleration of assets - which is a must for an MP.

    Dinesh Friday, 04 August 2017 01:07 PM
