United People's Freedom Alliance Parliamentarian Mahinda Rajapakshe says that he simply rejects all accusations that he took the Government to hide from all the cases filed against him and he is ready to stand before judiciary for every allegation. He added that the United National Party (UNP) promotes false propaganda and filed court cases against him seeking political revenge.
He made these comments responding to journalists after attending a ceremony held in Narahenpita Arama yesterday (06).
Mr. Rajapakshe pointed out that the Appeal Court’s decision has not nullified the Prime Minister post or the Cabinet, however, performing of duties has been suspended. He added that he completely denounces the court’s decision and that he has expressed his views before the Supreme Court with that regard.
He went on to say that this is the first time in history a lower court has made such a decision, leaving his final remarks that since they are not state employees, they are of the opinion that the decision is wrong.
