A complaint was filed with the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption on Wednesday against former Minister Wimal Weerawansa.

A group including Attorney-at-Law Namal Rajapaksa who contested from the Our National Front at the concluded presidential election filed this complaint.

The 2015 Presidential Election Candidate of the Our National Front, Attorney-at-Law Namal Rajapaksa said that until April 8, 2008, Wimal Weerawansa was a member of the JVP. He (Wimal Weerawansa) did not receive a wage and the money was deposited into a common fund. However, during the six years he served as a minister he had amassed an immeasurable amount of wealth. There are two massive houses under construction in Kaduwela.

Attorney-at-Law Namal Rajapaksa added:

“We believe that once construction is over, the cost will be around 200 million rupees. Back then, Wimal Weerawansa and his wife operated a communication centre in Mawaramandiya and were going through difficult times. However, today she (wife of Wimal Weerawamsa) is a shareholder of a number of garment factories and also operates a mega movie production house. His (Wimal Weerawansa’s) passports have been renewed. Therefore, he may leave the country in the near future. We urge the Director General of the Commission to use his power to prevent Wimal Weerawansa from travelling abroad.
