Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa stated in a communiqué that false allegations have been made against him with regard to 238 million dollars investment on Steel Corporation and Dubai Marriott Hotel.
The former President stated that the Financial Crimes Investigation Division has submitted a B report to the Kaduwela Magistrate Court concerning the matter.
The communiqué stated that the police have named the former President as the owner of the 238 million dollars property of Dubai Marriott Hotel and Steel Corporation, instead of Nandana Lokuvithana – who is posing as the proprietor.
According to the B report submitted by the Police FCID, the former President further stated that the investigations are conducted against him based on an anonymous complaint.
The former President also stated that the FCID’s action on an anonymous complaint is clear evidence for making false allegations against political opponents, intending to harass them.
He also stated that there is a case filed against the FCID at the Supreme Court as well.
Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa further stated in his communiqué, the B report is trying to prove that there is a case against him in connection with concealed wealth.
He said such allegations would serve favorable propaganda for political opponents as an election is on the card.
Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa reiterated that he does not own the Steel Corporation or the Dubai Marriott Hotel and that they belong to the respective owners who have claimed their proprietorship.
