Gotabhaya Rajapaksa Files Writ Petition At Appeals Court Seeking Order Not To Arrest Him

Former Defense Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa has filed a writ petition at the Supreme Court seeking an order against his arrest.

Gotabhaya Rajapaksa is under investigations for misappropriating state funds to build a memorial for his parents.

A sum of Rs. 91 million obtained for the ‘Weeraketiya Project’ of the Land Reclamation and Development Authority had been used to build the memorial for his parents.

News of his impending arrest began to circulate this week but according to reports his arrest was blocked by President Maithripala Sirisena.
