The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) today criticised the decision to allow former President’s son Lieutenant Yoshitha Rajapaksa to leave the country when there was an ongoing investigation into allegations made against him.


JVP MP Vijitha Herath said the defence secretary had assured they would appoint a committee to look into the privileges afforded to Mr. Rajapaksa.


“We complained that Yoshitha Rajapaksa had given special privileges during the previous government. But in the wake of all these allegations and ongoing investigations, the navy has granted him three months’ leave. Neither has he been summoned by the committee probing the allegations,” he told a news conference.


Mr. Herath said his party was displeased over the slow progress of investigation into LTTE’s former arms procurer Kumaran Pathmanathan alias KP and those who were alleged to have committed several acts of bribery and corruption. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    Very good, I think even the JVP activities during 88 / 89 too has to be probed into and passports of all JVP members should be impounded.

    APART FROM THESE IMPORTANT MATTER DISCUSSED UNDER "ADD COMMENT" AN IMPORTANT ISSUE THAT HAS ESCAPED OUR ATTENTION IS ABOUT THE PREMADASA SIBLINGS. WHILE DUMINDA SILVA IS BEING PROBED FOR RELEASING VAST FUNDS TO VARIOUS CHARITIES, SAJITH PREMADASA TOO IS RENOWNED FOR THE MSSIVE DONATIONS HE DOES TO TEMPLES IN PATICULAR. HOW DID THEY BOTH INHERITS SO MUCH OF FUNDS. PROBE SAJITH TOO TO BE FAIR. TGHEN HISSISTER DUAJLI MANAGED TO ESCAPE THOUGH MAHINDA SYMPATHIES, WHEN SHE ATTEMPTED TO BANK FORGED US DOLLARS FOR HER BUSINSS PARTNER. WE WISH TO KNOW IF THE PRESENT GOVT. IS ONLY FOR SOME PEOPLE PEOPLE .WE CANNOT TRUST RANIL AND CHANDRIKA WHO WOULD NOT HESITATE TO BETRAY THE SINHALESE FOR TAMIL FAVORS.

    Thanks to MR we are having peace. But now he should never be allowed to come to politics. He is the person responsible for problems what we are facing today. He is the architect of all corruption in this contry. His son Yoshitha should be brought back to the contry and then proper investigation must conducted. If found guilty then he should be punished. These glorified clan should be completed removed from the political system.
