Two Rajapaksa loyalists, Willie Gamage and Ariyathilaka Dasanayake were arrested today by the Financial Crimes Investigations Division (FCID), in connection to a land deal involving former Minister Basil Rajapaksa.
Gamage functioned as the Chairman of the Strategic Enterprise Management Agency during President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s term. Both Gamage and Dasanayaka had held senior positions at the ‘Rajapaksa Education and Cultural Centre.’
They were ordered to appear before the FCID to give a statement on a property deal, and were subsequently arrested by the Division soon after recording the statement, today. They are expected to be produced before the Gampaha Magistrate.
Colombo Telegraph will update more information on this shortly.
