Former president Mahinda Rajapaksa said today his government allowed SAITM to operate a medical faculty based on certain conditions.
He said this in response to a question asked by a journalist outside the Colombo Chief Magistrate’s Court premises.
Mr. Rajapaksa was present in court when the case against former defence secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Avant Garde Maritime Security Services Chairman Nissanka Senadhipathi was taken up for hearing.
While leaving the court premises, the former president said the government was taking revenge on its political opponents.
“This is what is called taking revenge. They can't do anything other than taking revenge using the services of the FCID and the CID,” he said.

Don't worry. If you and your family are not guilty, nothing will happen. I don't think MS or the government will do what was done to the best commander in the world and the lady CJ. I'm sure that they will not stoop to that level.

Mind telling us what are those conditions? The journalist who raised the issue should have asked this question too. At times in fact most of the times the journalists just spoon feed MR. Wonder why!

The Conditions he's talking about are that SAITM lines his very deep pockets with part of the profits.

Revenge is a kind of wild justice. Though he did some bad things to the nation, He is a Hero.
