Leader of the JVP Anura Kumara Dissanayake says the process of punishing those who committed fraud has come to a standstill.
Speaking during a media briefing held June 7 morning, he added that Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and President Maithripala Sirisena need to understand that the power that is behind them is not only the power of the executive and the power vested in them by law, but also the power of the vote that they received, which is more powerful.
He added that the processes of punishing those who committed fraud and reinstating public property that was misused, which was one of the main hopes of the the people who voted on January 8, have come to standstill
He went on to note that the main aim of certain investigations is to corner the final suspect who would be a member of the Rajapaksa family.
For example, he said, in the investigation on Divi Naguma, Basil Rajapaksa would be the starting point of the fraud. In the Avant Garde deal and the purchase of MIGs, he said, the final suspect would be Gotabhaya Rajapaksa. If there are investigations being carried out on the CSN TV channel, he added, at the end of that investigation would be Yoshitha Rajapaksa.
He added that the bulbs used for day and night matches at the Kettarama grounds were removed for car races to be held in Kandy and the value of these bulbs, which is over Rs. 78 million, has not been paid to Sri lanka Cricket. Dissnayake said that at the end of that investigation would be Namal Rajapaksa .
He went on to say that the suspect of the Siriliya account would be Shiranthi Rajapaksa and the final suspect of the Pushpa Rajapaksa foundation would be the wife of Basil Rajapaksa. Nishantha Wickremesinghe, the brother of Shiranthi Rajapaka, would be the final suspect of the Air Lanka deal.
He further noted that if investigations of the sale of weapons to Ukranian rebels continues, it would be revealed that Udayanga Weeratunga, the cousin brother of Mahinda Rajapaksa, is the suspect. At the end of investigations into money being given to various organisations, Mahinda Rajapaksa would be found to be the suspect.
He went on to add that the former first lady was questioned at the residence of the speaker instead of being taken to the FCID, and the police media spokesperson stated that she was taken there due to a situation of unrest near the premises of the FCID. He noted that that is a lie and the prime minister must explain to the country whether he spoke to the former president over the phone or not.
