Social Empowerment and Welfare Minister S.B.Dissanayake said he was disappointed that Yoshitha Rajapakse, former President Mahinda Rajapakse’s son, was remanded as an SLFP Member but Rajapaksha family members must take blame for this.
Releasing a media statement the Minister said he was disappointed as a member of the SLFA about the incident. “It is well known that holding a position in a private company while being a public servant is illegal.
The Mahinda Rajapaksha and his brothers elders around him are also to be blamed for this incident. He is someone who has a bright future not only as a public servant but also as a politician,” Dissanayake said.
It was the responsibility of the police officers to ensure the investigations and court procedures were completed soon, the Minister said.
