Former Prime Minister of the illegitimate government, MP Mahinda Rajapaksa, has stated that he denies allegations made by the UNP that he took over the government for fear of facing court cases.
Responding to questions raised by journalists at a function held at the Abhayaramaya in Narahenpita yesterday (6), he made this statement.
However, that is not the truth. The report issued by the Presidential Commission of Inquiry to investigate and inquire into Serious Acts of Fraud, Corruption and Abuse of Power, State Resources and Privileges (PRECIFAC) provides proof in that regard.
The Presidential Commission has clearly proposed that the civic rights of Percy Mahendra Rajapaksa – one of the responsible parties of the petition (PCI/95/2015) filed with regard to non-payment of dues to the Independent Television Network (ITN) – must be removed. Furthermore, relevant legal provisions have also been explained.
Six parties have been named as respondents for this particular petition.
