Gotabhaya talks nonsense
Addressing the ‘Viyath Maga’ seminar at Shangri-La Hotel in Colombo, former defence secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa said the economic setback in the country was due to corruption in the state. He said rulers and officials should be devoid of corruption if a country was to be developed. He also said everybody should work within the constitution and the law.
Gotabhaya made the remarks in the presence of his brother, Mahinda, who ruled the country for 10 years. Either he must have forgotten as to what had happened during that period or he must be thinking the people have forgotten that past.
 
He is a former defence secretary who worked as if the country and its resources were his private property. A very few of his wrongdoing include the misuse of Land Reclamation Corp. money to build D.A. Rajapaksa museum, non-payment of dues for the election advetisments for Mahinda Rajapaksa on ITN, payment of 10 million dollars to a non-existent company in the MiG deal, using Divi Neguma money to print almanacs, using Rs. 600 million of TRC money to distribute Sil clothing and losses from the Greek bond investments.
 
Also, he is now saying all should respect the law, after getting the police and the armed forces members to commit various crimes, including abductions, murders etc, during the Rajapaksa rule.
