Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa will undertake a tour of Japan on June 9 along with a few other members of the Joint Opposition, it is learnt.

He will travel in Japan on an invitation extended to him by a group of Sri Lankans living in that country. Sources close to him said MPs Wimal Weerawansa and Prasanna Ranatunga will join him.

This is his third overseas visit undertaken after his defeat at the Presidential Election last year. Earlier, he visited Uganda and Thailand. (Kelum Bandara)

    Mahinda before going to Japan due to jealousy, go and meet the flood victims.

    You and Weerawansa should go to Ethiopia not to Japan. You guys should go and settle down there, that is the right place for you guys.

    Hope the government is not footing his travel expenses. I am sure during his visit Udaya will meet him there to discuss personnel matters.

    Is your government doing very effective things otherwise?

    What a fun life.... Hope Japan as a friendly country would advise him.

    Well he is entitled to certain perks so can't complain about that, but he should not expect VIP treatment from the Japanese government. MR has this entitlement syndrome that foreign countries should respect him even during private visits. That is not the case. Unless you are a guest of that foreign government you will not get special treatment.
