Sure, first the mental health of the voters who appointed him has to be tested!
President’s mental status. Yes he look like defeated man high on drugs, admitting the damage he done to Sri Lanka and Sinhalese people. When you ruined a country and its people you will be insane. (bari sil noganin abaro)
why not charge him in the Supreme Court
The Judiciary failed the country in this instance.
It is not a mental illness but immaturity and low level education.
