I Don’t Even Have A House To Live: Gota

Former Secretary to the Ministry of Defence Gotabaya Rajapaksa has said the allegations leveled against him on plundering state wealth – particularly the wealth accumulated after the defeat of the LTTE – are baseless and claims he is not even financially well-off to buy a house for himself.

I am trying to buy a house because the house that I currently live in is owned by my mother-in-law and she was living here for 40 years. I currently use this house because she is living in the US,” he has said in an interview with the Daily Mirror.

He has said the decision to not prosecute LTTE Leader KP was mutually agreed on by the former President Mahinda Rajapaksa and the three security commanders because they believed it would pave way for him to cooperate with their investigations into the LTTE network.

However, as for KP’s wealth and his fleet of ships that Gotabaya is accused of taking control, he has said that he has no idea about it because all details are with the military intelligence, some of which even he hasn’t had access to.

Meanwhile, he has stated that he believes the failure to punish members of the government promptly for their wrongdoings is one of the reasons that contributed towards the public losing faith in his brother’s regime.

    In my salad days,I held the view that all men/women are equal irrespective of their birth/background! The family that proved me wrong was the Rajapakse family! They are anything but well bred!
