Colombo (News 1st); Riyad Bathiudeen, the brother of Ex-Minister Rishad Bathiudeen, in a letter to President Gotabaya Rajapaksa said the request made to re-arrest him is made on baseless grounds.

Bathiudeen in the letter said he was released based on a previously issued order by the Magistrate’s Court which stated to release him if there was insufficient evidence.

Riyad Bathiudeen recalled four others arrested along with him were released on the same grounds and informed the President that calls for his re-arrest are based on racist and political motives.
