Yoshitha Rajapaksa, former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s son was arrested by the FCID a short while ago, Navy Spokesman Captain Akram Alevi said. He said Mr. Rajapaksa would be produced before the Kaduwela Magistrate soon.
A few days ago, Chief Government Whip Gayantha Karunatilleke told Parliament that the Navy would take action against Lieutenant Rajapaksa based on the advice of the President's office in the wake of the recommendations made by the tripartite committee.
He also said that some Rs.16 million had been spent by the state for his training in Britain and Ukraine.

Do the crime do your time. Good lesson for those abusing power. His father was President alright, but he should have been equal with all his colleagues doing everything on merit. He also influenced Navy top brass to take over 150 year old traditional Trinco Harbour Masters bungalow, destroyed tradition. Ditto dharma vedaneeya karma!!
