MP Namal Rajapaksa said today said the government had started victimizing the Rajapaksa family members as a ruse to cover up the bond scam.
In a twitter message, he said his mother Shirathi and brothers Yoshitha and Rohitha had been calledby the CID and the FCID.
“Sri Lanka government using Rajapaksas to cover up bond scam. Former First Lady, Yoshitha Rajapaksa and Rohitha called to CID/FCID this week,” he tweeted.
The Police said today the CID asked former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s wife Shiranthi and their son Yoshitha to report to the CID to record statements in connection with the defender jeep which had allegedly been used to provide protection to a VIP after it was given to the Siriliya Saviya Foundation by the Red Cross in 2011.
They said Rohitha Rajapaksa was asked to report to the FCID tomorrow to record statement over an ongoing investigation.(Darshana Sanjeewa)

Mind you, son of a former President; your scams were executed in gay abandon during your hay days and still to you all to be executed.

These crooks should have been locked up longtime ago. However I have some sympathy with his view the timing of their recall is to divert the heat from the bond scam. I hope the citizens of this country will never forgive anyone who plundered the nation and moreover I hope the AG and his band of lawyers will not let the citizens down.

Namal, Do you mean to say you and your immediate family did not rob our country? Ranil is the one helping your family and be grateful to that chap.
Ram Tuesday, 15 August 2017 02:53 AM
You robbed the people from 2005 over a period of over 10 years and the investigators have a bigger job at hand to get to the bottom of it and your investigations started at least two years ago whereas the Bond Scam was 2 years back and investigations started recently. So you guys were in the net before the Bond scam

The Bar Association is defending the AGs case on Ravi.Did you lose your voice when so many corrupted officials have been interogated by the Dept. in fact more than 40 cases and no conviction has been made to date. People are called up by the Bribery commission, no bail is given and then they are set free. What sort of legal proceedings are made by the AG Dept. Or are they the blue eyed boys of the previous regime or also involved in unprofessioal practices.Can you show us one case where corrupt members of the previous regime have been convicted. The people of Sri lanka are not that stupid except that their hands are tied and in no postion to take any remidial action.

It is the other way around; Your family is using the Bond Scam to cover up your corruption and nepotism acts committed under the cover of your father's presidency
