While extending his gratitude for the benevolent decision to make an ex-gratia payment of US$ 5 million to the victims and their families of the Easter Sunday attack, MP Wijedasa Rajapaksa informed Saudi Minister of Justice Dr. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Abdul Karim Al-Issa, in a letter that the victims have not been given a single dollar.

The MP said he had inquired this from the former President and the incumbent President and President's Secretary by his letter dated January 12, 2021 and added that they confirmed that Saudi Arabia had not given a single dollar, despite the wide publicity given about the donation.

“There was a wide publicity given in the local and International media - both electronic and print - that you had made a donation of US$ 5 million to the said victims in the presence of the then President of Sri Lanka Maithripala Sirisena, Former Presidents Chandrika Bandaranayaike Kumaranathunga and Mahinda Rajapaksa at the end of the said conference held at "Nelum Pokuna Theatre,” he said.

“I am hopeful that your consciences would be shocked to hear again the said catastrophe, and your humanity would compel you to fulfil the said undertaking with the height of your compassion, love and care towards the said victims,” MP Rajapakshe told Karim Al-Issa.
