GOTA files FR anticipating arrest
Although, former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa was scheduled to give a statement to the Financial Crime Investigation Division today, it is reported that he would not do it today.
When our news team contacted former Defence Secretary, he said that he has asked for another day, so he would not report to the FCID today.
Former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa has been called to the FCID to obtain a statement in connection with alleged fraud taken place in purchasing MiG Aircraft for Sri Lanka Air Force.
Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, on his Face book, posted on May 10th, his timetable for this week.
Accordingly, he expects to report to the Bribery Commission on Monday, the FCID on Tuesday, the CID on Wednesday and the Bribery Commission on Thursday.
He has also posted on his Face book, that he is getting tribute in this manner for the commitment and honest service he rendered for the country.
Meanwhile, former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa filed a fundamental rights petition yesterday citing the FCID is illegitimate.
In his petition, Gotabhaya Rajapaksa requested the Supreme Court to issue an injunction, preventing the FCID from arresting him.
This petition will be considered by the Supreme Court tomorrow.
