AG fails to act upon investigations against the Rajapaksas

No legal action has been initiated against ex-president Mahinda Rajapaksa and members of his family over amassing wealth by nefarious means, despite the attorney general having given the investigation reports by the CID and the SIU more than a year ago, police say.

A senior police official told Sri Lanka Mirror about this when asked about the CID investigations that led to the ‘New York Times’ exposure.

It was the Central Bank that received the particular complaint first.

Then the CID and the SIU took over the matter.

The FCID recorded a statement from Elle Gunawansa Thera with regard to the Buddhist monk mentioned in the US newspaper report.

All those investigation reports had been sent to the AG’s Department a year ago.

Most of the revelations came in the investigation with regard to Gamini Senarath, chief-of-staff of the former president.
