  • Papers for renunciation submitted on April 17 


Former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa has not been included in the list of names released by the US Government of those who have relinquished their citizenship during the first quarter of 2019 ending March 31. 

The list appears on the Federal Register website as a notice dated May 13, 2019 by the internal revenue service. It states: “This listing contains the name of each individual losing United  States citizenship (within the meaning of Section 877(a) or 877A) with respect to whom the Secretary received information during the quarter ending March 31, 2019.” 

Filing a declaration in the US District Court for the Central District of California, former Chief Justice Asoka de Silva said Gotabaya Rajapaksa filed papers at the US Embassy in Colombo to renounce his American citizenship on April  17, 2019. The list of persons who had abandoned US citizenship in the second quarter will be released shortly.
