Former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa has rejected news reports published by AL Jazeera and AFP that he operated a death squad with the intention of silencing his critics.

Foreign news agencies reported that the Criminal Investigations Department had told the Mt. Lavinia Magistrate's Court that Gotabaya Rajapaksa led a secret death squad, targeting journalists and opponents.

In a letter written by the lawyer representing Rajapaksa, addressed to both AL Jazeera and AFP news, Gotabaya Rajapaksa had said the news was a blatant ‘lie’.

His lawyer informed the news stations that during the time period mentioned, Rajapaksa was a civilian and had no authority to operate any military or other deployment, therefore, he demanded that the false news published by these foreign media stations be corrected immediately.
