Shiranthi Snubs Commission

by Kasun Pusawela

Former First Lady Shiranthi Rajapaksa who has been asked to appear before the Presidential Commission on large scale fraud tomorrow, has avoided accepting the notice from the Commission.

As a result, the Commission says, it has not taken steps to send the notice to her residence at Carleton House in Tangalle.

Sources from the Presidential Commission said the notice had earlier been sent to Rajapaksa’s residence in Nugegoda, but no one was available to accept it.

Rajapaksa’s lawyers had later informed the Commission that since she was not at the residence to accept the notice when it was delivered, she will not appear before the Commission tomorrow.  The Commission has later taken steps to deliver the notice to her residence in Tangalle through the police.

The former First Lady is being investigated over a house worth 50 million owned by the government when Wimal Weerawansa was the Minister of Housing, being given to a media secretary of Mrs. Rajapaksa identified as Milinda Ratnayake for Rs. 500,000. Secretary to the Commission Lacille de Silva said that since Mrs. Rajapaksa was not at her residence in Nugegoda to accept the notice it has been sent to Tangalle.

    Blatant swindling of the very voters who elected the Rajapakses.

  4. The law is a Cobweb; the small insects are entangled and caught, whilst the big ones go through breaking it !!!

  7. sarath

    Bloody same. Why so reluctant to appear? Real rouges.

  8. While most the Sri Lankans are not knowing when their next meal is forthcoming, all what the government does is to take action against former rulers and their spouses. Fabricating cases against the Present governments oppoinents is the only act done by Sirisena government

    we are purturbed over news reports that the president is having secret t alks with mr’s family to sweep their fraudelent acts under the carpet in exchange for party control.

    this is not what we voted for. we want those who robbed the people of their wealth ,male or female punished and robbed money returned.

    the fomer first ladys brother who manned air lanka was having a gala time with stewardesses accordibg to news items , at air line expense, but yet the man is walking free/ hedging deal culprit also former first ladys relative still free.

    these rogue family has to be dealt with legally if they have done wrong.

    IS THIS JUST EYE WASH.
    IF SHE DOES NOT COME OR ACCEPT SUMMONS USE THE POLICE. GET A COURT ORDER TO ENTER PREMISES AND SERVE NOTICE.
    ONE CAN USE RAJAPAKSE TACTICS AND SEND WHITE VANS. THEY ARE APPARENTLY QUITE FAMILIAR WITH THEM.

    Arrest the woman. As an ordinary citizen, can we act like that? There should only be one law to everyone in the country.

  13. Ananda

    Unfortunately, MS & RW keeping an blind eye to all unruly things originated from the top politicians and their families.

    A week doesn’t pass with a new accusation om MR’s family. It is high time that they are given due punishments. Shamefully this family goes from temple to temple through out the year but what they have done is plundering Lanka’ s wealth, crime, accused of murder, taking law in to their own hands, considering wealth of Lanka as their own, supporting/ protecting/ encouraging thugs, drug lords and criminals etc. They thought that their absolute power will last for ever. The MPs who gave this absolute power should bury their heads in shame!

  15. Rajapakse & co has the backing of MY3 , Ranil & Law Minister Rajapakse, this is the reason MR &CO are playing with the Bribary Cmmission.

  16. Jay

    This is a media show and put presser, they want to stop MR taking over SLFP
