Mangala goes to CID over forged letter with his signature

Finance and Media Minister Mangala Samaraweera has filed a complaint with the Police Criminal investigations Department (CID) over a forged letter with his signature.

The letter, addressed to the British Tamils Forum, refers to the action taken by the Foreign Ministry earlier with regards to the conduct of a military officer at the Sri Lankan High Commission in the UK.

The forged letter has Samaraweera’s name and signature at the end and refers to him as the Foreign Minister although he is no more the Foreign Minister.

#Rajapaksa clan is showing off their ignorance yet again by forging my signature on a fake letter,on @MFA_SriLanka letterhead.These idiots are still not aware that I’m no longer the MFA. Reported to CID to bring the perpetrators to justice,” Samaraweera tweeted.

Responding to the allegation that the family of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa was behind the letter, Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa tweeted saying if they want to criticize Samaraweera they will do it directly.

“Hon. Min. @MangalaLK: If @PresRajapaksa, I or any other Rajapaksa want to criticize you, your policies or your government, we’ll do it directly. I’m glad that you reported it. Action must be taken against those responsible for spreading this kind of misinformation,” Namal Rajapaksa tweeted. (Colombo Gazette)

    This is the usual mode of Operandi of the Rajapakse Clan , Discrediting opponents is the order of the day

    All the people involved in this cannot read. Just look at the date of the letter. It is written on2/2/18. The incident happened on 4/2/18. If the finance minister cannot see that , and the person who wrote this letter could not put the correct date, god help the economic management of the country and the calibre of the opposition .,

    Certainly looks like the work of the Rajapakse clan! They will do anything to influence the uneducated villagers to get them back into power.

    Rajapaksas and Mangala are equally corrupt Machiavellian politicians. Who cares about their internal feuds. These fellows have mislead and hoodwinked us for nearly three decades. When are we; the people going to throw these fellows into the garbage bin of our history?

  6. This is another Gimmick of Mangala himself. He is famous for such tricks. This is just to portrait an innocent picture of him in front of the voters. He was thrown spoilt eggs recently in Matara and very unpopular among the citizens.
