Colombo (News 1st): Minister Dr Rajitha Senaratne expressing his views at a media briefing in Colombo today (April 30) noted that the information they have received shows that it was Gotabaya Rajapaksa who supported organizations like National Thowheed Jamath and Bodu Bala Sena.
He added that the latest information they received was about the murder in Batticaloa where two police constables were killed while on duty. He noted that it was 4 Army officers who directed operation with the use of intelligence information and it has been revealed that they are linked to Gotabaya Rajapaksa.
The Minister said 26 officers were paid by the intelligence and salaries were also paid to Thowheed Jamath members. He pointed out that the suicide bomber Abdul Razeek was the secretary of the organization and that he was paid as an officer of army intelligence.
“This is the Thawheed Jamath Organization and this was the picture the organization has taken with the former president. The one on top is our very own patriot Udaya Gammanpila. There are photographs with Wimal Weerawansa too. So these are the extremists with them. A minister at the time, Hizbullah and Dullas Alahapperuma signed an agreement to build a sharia university in Batticaloa. But now they say that the university should be closed. But who signed it? They signed it.”
