Kurunegala District MP Mahinda Rajapaksa’s elder son Namal Rajapaksa, his brother Basil Rajapaksa, MPs Wimal Weerawansa, Kumara Welgama, and Rohitha Abeygunawardene would be arrested very soon, former President Mahinda Rajapaksa speculated speaking to the media at the Dalada Maligawa in Kandy said today.

“I too will be arrested. We are closely watching the situation,” Rajapaksa told the media.

He reiterated that he would not quit from the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) even though many tried to drive him out of the party.

“On the preference of the people, a new political party might be formed, but I will remain a SLFPer,” he said. (L.B Senaratne, J.A.L. Jayasinghe and Nadeeka Bandara)

    Everyone should now realise that one has to pay for the sins committed by them during their hay days! So what these people are doing is trying to divert attention !

    It seems that Sirisena is stopping arrests of these people.

    MR has no future in SLFP.. He never seem to understand after suffering two consecutive losses. He should retire from politics and let some other talented person to lead the progressive political forces of the country. There should be a third political party in the country against the corrupt old parties.

    Language of sympathy....now days he is becoming very cheap.

    Hashsn Sunday, 28 February 2016 02:34 PM

    Why? Were you too involved in the murder of the ruggerite?

    Sudu Sunday, 28 February 2016 04:11 PM

    Being a UPFA member alone enough for arrest.

    Dingimahattaya Sunday, 28 February 2016 03:49 PM

    you are absolutely correct..

    Premalal Sunday, 28 February 2016 03:49 PM

    At least you guys would get a fair trial which is much more than you deserve considering the justice you meted out to others.

    rajs26 Sunday, 28 February 2016 03:21 PM

    you are using a sacred place for your political propaganda. If you or others mentioned have done any offence according to law you/ they must be arrested. Law is impartial. Just because you all are politician you are not immune to the law.

    Mojo Sunday, 28 February 2016 03:20 PM

    He was accused of using State assets for his personal proposal, including his minions.

    This is not Yahapalanaya.This is victimisation.Why no problems forDuminda SilvaMervyn SilvaRajithaThis MS-RW stratgey will back fire.Current government is not focussing on the burning issues of the country but focussed on eliminating MRDon

    Joseph Sunday, 28 February 2016 03:17 PM

    I have lots of respect for you please leave politics. Its good for the country and your family may god bless you thanks

    Dee Sunday, 28 February 2016 03:16 PM

    Dont admit. Some you mention are real rougues historically. But you?

    Mandy Sunday, 28 February 2016 03:08 PM

    That is as it should be for wrongdoers after proper evidence. But you convicted innocents like SF and Shirani B for political vengeance without real evidence.

    Bala Sunday, 28 February 2016 03:05 PM

    Trying to get sympathy. He and others he named should have been arrested one year ago if it was a judicial system that he practised and convicted under kangaroo system.
