Gota amused by attempts to implicate him in Lasantha’s murder

Former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa has said attempts by the government to implicate him in the murder of Lasantha Wickramatunge by spreading false information and trying to conceal information pertaining to the incident, is amusing.

Issuing a statement regarding the allegations leveled against him, Gotabhaya Rajapaksa has said this plot to pin the blame on him is very evident by the statements made by certain politicians.

Investigations have been initiated regarding the Avant Garde Maritime Services, Rakna Lanka Security Services, the MiG deal issue and the D.A. Rajapaksa foundation issue and a sinister plan is in motion by the government to tarnish his reputation, the former Defence Secretary noted.

Rajapaksa said in addition, the government is attempting to implicate him in the killing of the former Sunday Leader Editor Lasantha Wickramatunge and have him arrested.

He alleges that even the police is conniving with the government in conjuring up false evidence against him to implicate him, adding that not only within the country, but the country has come into disrepute even internationally with regard to the dismal manner in which law and order is being implemented in the country.
