Lieutenant Yoshitha Rajapaksa who was remanded on charges of money laundering, has been suspended from Naval service with effect from February 28 as directed by the Defence Ministry, the Navy said today.

The Ministry made the order following a request by the Financial Crime Investigation Division (FCID) in order to conduct an independent investigation.

Navy Spokesman Akram Alavi said Yoshitha’s salary and allowances would be halted with immediate effect and he would not be permitted to enter any Naval premises without the approval of the Naval Head Quarters.  (Darshana Sanjeewa)

    It is the duty of the parents whether rich or poor to guide their children to become good citizens and grow up in life but not fall into dirty pits. Money is the root cause of all evil the more you have the more you are greedy to earn more byany evil means. The life is this youth is a good example from growing high and falling down one reason the greediness for money and the other reason parents not guiding to live an honest life. As a parent I feel very sorry for the plight of this young boy.

    that is correct, he should not be allowed to Naval premises without the approval of the Naval Head Quarters for an independent investigation till he is proven innocent. Say rule apply to him as applied to SF.

    I would blame the parents for ruining a young life.Of course as responsible parents you should guide your children to do the right things in life to be successful in their own lives. Shortcuts and easy money are evil. You need to work hard to achieve your goals.Good lesson for all parents.

    This is the outcome of parents pampering their siblings. Creating pathways that are not available to others. Ruining the lives of children and then shedding crocodile tears.

    How can a crook discipline his children?

    good question, MR should be made to pay for unlawful appointment and training.

    Surely, in law, you do not have to prove innocence. Until he has been guilty by the courts he must be innocent . this is a fundamental principle of law.
