Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa today said even the current First Lady could be sued as she was seen distributing ‘Sil Redi’ along with the President a few days ago.

Speaking to journalists in Kandy, Mr. Rajapaksa said he would visit former president’s secretary Lalith Weeratunga who was sentenced to three years rigorous imprisonment.

Mr.Weeratunga was found guilty of misappropriating Rs.600 million belonging to the TRC and using it to distribute ‘Sil Redi’ during the 2015 presidential election campaign. (Chamil Rupasinghe)

    Most important issue is MR robbed the public money and offered.

    If the First Lady was using her own funds for Sil Redi then no case.

    Victor Perera Saturday, 09 September 2017 05:54 PM

    Mahinda was talking about the first lady during his period who robbed, ofcourse she has to be sued.

    Distributing Sil Redi is not a crime. But doing it using public money is the crime. via DM Android App

    If such "SIL Redi" had been purchased out of public money, yes, but it hasn't, bcos you have enough of trillions already robbed.

    Yes you have to visit him , Because of you only he is in prison. Give him the 50 million and bail him out.

    Dear Ex president,The concern is the purpose of distributing sil redi,

    You are proving again that you are dumb.

    Baron Saturday, 09 September 2017 07:18 PM

    But people who vote for MR are dumber

    Patriot Saturday, 09 September 2017 01:05 PM

    if she has used the public money to get votes for the President.

    Mandy Saturday, 09 September 2017 01:22 PM

    But First Lady genuinely doing it and not during any election period - between nomination and election. As usual twisting everything to cover your sins.

    VJ Saturday, 09 September 2017 01:56 PM

    But it is not election time. The two were found guilty for misappropriation of public funds. You should be charged for attempting to bribe the voters.

    Lalith Kanangara Saturday, 09 September 2017 05:43 PM

    Mahinda you lost the Presidential Election because God even did not like you stealing and offering understand.

    P.C. Perera Saturday, 09 September 2017 05:44 PM

    First lady did this good deed spending her own money, not like you robbing and showing you that you are an angel Mahinda.

    Vernon Saturday, 09 September 2017 06:05 PM

    Why are you so worked up for the crimes committed by two others? Your utterances and concern shows that you have given instructions to these helpless government officials, who during your time had no backbone to refuse doing things against rules.

    Hamlet Sunday, 10 September 2017 12:23 PM

    The Crime is not distributing 'Sil Redi', but using The Country's Money in an Individual's Name.

    MR ge Magodis weda hinda golayo Amaruwe....
