Arrested without proper charges – Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa
Former President and Kurunegala District MP, Mahinda Rajapaksa, said the statement made by some ministers had clearly indicated how the Police were going to act in arresting Rajapaksa family members.
All the arrests have been made under the Money Laundering Act, which was enacted to prevent fund raising activities of terrorist organisations. “I don’t see any relevance of the Money Laundering Act in these arrests. They have been arrested without any proper charges,” he charged
“If someone has done anything wrong he should be arrested. As a father I must tell, even if my children had done anything wrong they have to be arrested but there should be a proper way of doing that,” he added.

sorry sir but justice should be done.
MaRa should feel himself lucky for still being able to walk around freely in spite of the atrocities him and his army of thugs committed for ten long years. Sadam was pulled out of a rabbit hole and hanged. Gadafi pulled out of a road drainage pipe and shot. This is what MaRa and his group of thugs deserve for the sins they committed. Srilankans are still still civilised to not to resort to such harsh measures as punishment.
Justice should be done but there seems to be no one who has been proven guilty so far. Seems like all the present Government wants to do is harass the Rajapakse clan and any one connected to them. Why has no one been sent to jail if My3 and RW had all this proof they said they had prior to the elections.
Don’t you guys realize that this a way of taking the focus away from all the blunders that are been made by the current regime.
The 5000 or so email messages found at Carlton Sports confirms that this rascal was the defacto Chairman of the outfit while still serving the navy. Gota says he is the one who encouraged MaRa to get one of his sons to join the armed forces to boost the flailing morale of the forces. Very correct. What he meant was to be at the front line and not to occupy a cushy position at others disgust and expense.
MaRa what more proof do you want. You hoodwinked the whole country and dispatched the white van to anyone who had the guts to protest. Do you think the heigherachy in the navy would have been happy when you gave your darling putha all the priviledges that the higher ups were not entitled to. You had a easy ride hanging on to the defunct tiger’s tail.
