Former ambassador to Russia, Udayanga Weeratunga who was accused of supplying arms to Ukrainian rebels has denied all the allegations levelled against him by the Sri Lankan government, BBC reported today.

According to the BBC, Mr. Weeratunga in a letter to them had stated that he was now living in Ukraine.

“No criminal investigation against me is being carried out by the Ukrainian government as the Ukrainian Internal Affairs Ministry has informed me in a certificate issued on April 1, 2015,” Mr. Weeratunga has said.

A spokesman for the Ukrainian Foreign Affairs Ministry had earlier told BBC that it was not possible to prove the allegation or refute them.

Mr. Weeratunga had said that he was currently living in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine; and he had asked whether he would have been allowed to live there if he had committed such an offence.

Speaking about the suspicious death of Noel Ranaweera, a business partner of Mr. Weeratunga, he had said he died in a road accident and therefore no investigation was being carried out over the death.

He had also said all the official documents issued to him by the Ukrainian and Russian governments were with him.

“I do not intend to visit Sri Lanka due to this kind of political revenge,” he further said.

Mr. Weeratunga is a close relative of former president Mahinda Rajapaksa.

    See this idiot is still challenging the GOSL. Why can not the President use his powers to get him down to the Sri Lanka and investigate all the corrupt deals.

    He has said he is in Kiev by a letter. He may be in Medamulana and posted the letter from anywhere. He has enough money to cover up all the tracks. Even Ukrainians love cash.
