Former Minister and MP Mervyn Silva today complained to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) against Former Minister and MP Basil Rajapaksa and former Defense Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa over alleged frauds and crimes committed by them.
Mr. Silva told media soon after making a complaint to the CID that he did not want to take revenge from anyone but it was them who took revenge from him. “I do not want to take revenge from anyone. They are the ones who took revenge from me.
I was not given a proper ministry to work. I came to the CID to complain over all the murders such as Bharatha Laksman Premachandra, Lasantha Wikrametunge and the attacks on several private media institutions.
It is Gotabhaya Rajapaksa who was behind the white van culture in the country,” he said. Mr. Silva alleged that MP Basil Rajapaksa who did not have anything before coming to politics had amassed a massive wealth including several hotels and luxury houses.
He also alleged that Basil Rajapaksa withdrew millions of rupees from the Divi Neguma Bill and used the treasury at their will during the election campaign.
When asked about the allegations leveled against him, Mr. Silva said he was ready to prove his innocence and asked to make any complaint against him.(Sanath Desmond and Ajith Siriwardena) Video by Sanath Desmond
