Commenting on the arrest of former Minister Basil Rajapaksa, Deputy Minister of Highways & investment Promotion, Eran Wickramaratne stated that the former Minister Basil Rajapaksa is not afraid to face charges unlike the rest of his family.

However Deputy Minister Wickramaratne noted that if Basil Rajapaksa was an ordinary person he would have been sent straight to prison instead of being allowed to go to a hospital.

Commenting on statements being made that former President Mahinda Rajapaksa cannot be brought before court, the Deputy Minister stated that this is a false notion as former President Chandrika Kumaratunga was summoned before court on an earlier occasion. Wickramaratne noted that law cannot be enforced differently even for former presidents.
