Strongman and confidante of the former regime and the Rajapaksas, Sajin Vaas Gunawardena says no one can send him to prison as he has manipulated the Attorney General’s Department in the way he wants.
The the foreign ministry supervising MP, he has been accused of misusing presidential secretariat vehicles and also of money laundering. Remanded for a brief period, he was subsequently released on bail.
Now, he is saying with his friends that he has manipulated the AG’s Dept., and kept his files ‘misplaced’ for the past one year, with the relevant quarters being gratified.
He noted that he has been able to arrange his activities to show that he belonged neither to the government nor to the joint opposition, and that he is the only person to get MSD security through the president. Newspapers or webs cannot do anything against me and I will go on my journey, he said.
“All the others may go to prison, but I cannot be sent to prison. I have balanced everything well. Tell them to dare sending me to prison,” he has challenged, according to reports reaching Lanka News Web.
