Gota maama’s media outfit had an entirely different take on this, however. The statement they issued said that you had taken responsibility for the ‘events’ at Welikada and Anuradhapura and had resigned from your ministerial post related to the prisons. They didn’t seem too embarrassed about it, did they?
Then it gets even more interesting. That is because you have resigned from your ministry related to the prisons but not resigned from your other ministry related to gems and jewellery. Is it because you are alleged to have threatened some prisoners but haven’t robbed any gems – at least not yet anyway?
