Parliament today granted a three-month period of leave to MP Basil Rajapaksa,  who is in the USA.

Opposition Leader Nimal Siripala de Silva had presented the relevant proposal, which was approved by Parliament.

Soon after the conclusion of the last Presidential election, Mr. Rajapaksa left for USA with his family.

    Looks like he is willing to come only if his beloved twisted brothers are in authority and power.

    His fleeing itself is ample proof that he is guilty.

    southpaw Wednesday, 18 February 2015 05:03 PM

    3 months is probably sufficient time to take care of his illgotton wealth and turn his black money in to white .

    WHY NOT ANYBODY GIVE CONTRACT AS THE ROGUE CANNOT RETURN

    ralahamy Thursday, 19 February 2015 09:34 AM

    Basil does not need the parliament and the parliament does not need him. This is just a farce wasting Public money, you and I sweat to pay as tax.

    Senator Thursday, 19 February 2015 09:46 AM

    Fleeing away.It shows that Basil has been the culprit for the the wrongs in the previous government.

    Waco Thursday, 19 February 2015 01:57 PM

    He should have been treated as having vacated the post .

    Waco Thursday, 19 February 2015 02:08 PM

    Leave is granted before availing on leave and not after.

    Sana Wednesday, 18 February 2015 03:37 PM

    Why not kick him from Parliament? Basil is the only Rajapakse who did no good.

    chandra Wednesday, 18 February 2015 03:45 PM

    Even to get a leave from an ordinary office they need a valid reason. What are the reasons to grant leave?
