Former defence secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa said today that all steps needed to renounce his US citizenship were successfully concluded while he was in the US.

“I was in the US to take necessary steps to get my US citizenship renounced and to meet lawyers in this regard. I concluded all procedures needed for that successfully. However, I will have to get it done from here. Once they inform me, I will submit necessary documents to get it renounced,” he said. (T.K.G. Kapila)

    You can't give up your citizenship when there is a court case against you.

    H.E Goatabaya fled from the country during the height of the war and only came back to make money and rubber-stamp the rape of our country on multiple fronts. Those of us who have stayed through all this and done our bit for our motherland are no Less patriotic than you, siR.
