The same Law which was enforced on Perpetual Treasuries Limited (PTL) owner Arjun Aloysius should be enforced on former defence secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa in connection with the Avant Garde scam, Megapolis and Western Development Minister Champika Ranawaka said.

He said Mr. Rajapaksa was accused of causinga Rs.12 billion loss to the Government through the Avant Garde floating armoury and the security service.

The minister said the SL Navy which had acquired this business had earned profits ofmore than Rs.10 million a day and pointed out justice must be meted out by enforcing the law on the former defence secretary as well.

Meanwhile, he requested the President to wield his sword over the Ratwatte family for misappropriating another Rs.12 billion from the Ceylon Electricity Board. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    Mr. Minister, how about the same law apply to the most opportunistic "panama papers politician"?

    Henry Tuesday, 06 February 2018 02:35 PM

    Minister: Please understand that Gota is a national icon who paved the way for a safer SL. Unlike Aloysius there is no wide outcry to arrest him.

    Champika, you are right. But when you were in trouble after a motor accident the law evaded you. Can you explain that please?

    sobers Tuesday, 06 February 2018 02:42 PM
