Gotabaya Rajapaksa at Bribery Commission

Gotabhaya Rajapaksa

Former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa arrived at the Bribery Commission this morning as he was summoned to record statements over various allegations.

Meanwhile, a tense situation prevailed due to a protest out by several organisations and political parties including Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU) outside the Commission against the summoning of Mr. Rajapaksa.

The protest was carried out despite an order issued by the Colombo Chief Magistrate yesterday banning the protest.
