Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa on Friday, arrived at the Presidential Commission of Inquiry into serious acts of fraud.

Statements are being recorded over the non-payment of Rs. 200 million owed to the Independent Television Network for political advertisements, during the 2015 presidential election campaign.

The recording of evidence was halted as the head of audits at the Independent Television Network arrived at the Commission and made contradictory statements to what he made on Thursday.

Secretary to the Commission Lacille De Silva said that the Presidential Commission of Inquiry into serious acts of fraud and corruption will record evidence again on November 19 and 20.

Former President, Mahinda Rajapaksa stated:

Based on what is taking place and the answers that are provided, I think the ITN will have to make payments to us because there are issues where the calculations were made twice on the same matter. While every president, prime minister and candidates issue messages for Christmas – they have made calculations for the Christmas messages as well.
