A complaint calling for an immediate probe into the recruitment of Rajapaksa ‘prince’ Yoshitha into Sri Lanka Navy, is due to be made today by the JVP.
JVP Western provincial Councillor Dr. Nalinda Jayatissa addressing the media yesterday had said they are urging the Defense Ministry to conduct a probe into the following aspects of Yoshitha’s recruitment to the Navy:
- The process of his recruitment
- How he was able to receive a scholarship to study at the Royal Naval College in Dartmouth, UK
- How he was declared the batch-top despite failing to successfully complete the academic course at the Dartmouth university
- His conduct whilst being a government servant upon being appointed as an officer of the Sri Lanka Navy
It is said that Mahinda Rajapaksa’s final act as the President was to relieve Yoshitha as an officer of the Navy.
Meanwhile, the JVP also urged the public to provide them with information regarding corruption and injustices committed by the Rajapaksa family, their henchmen as well as state officials during the Rajapaksa regime in order to conduct their own probe.
