An attempt by Rajitha to bring int’l disrepute - Minister Amaraweera

Former Minister Rajitha Senaratne concocted the Swiss Embassy employee ‘abduction’ incident to tarnish the good image of the Sri Lankan Government internationally, Passenger Transport, Power and Energy Minister Mahinda Amaraweera said recently.

The Minister said former Minister Senaratne is the only person who is alleged to have facts and evidence on the incident related to the Swiss Embassy employee because he made a statement to the media as if he eye witnessed the incident.

Addressing a meeting in Hambantota, Minister Amaraweera said hence it seems there are ample grounds to arrest former Minister Senaratne to divulge the act of treason that attempted to damage the image of the newly-appointed Government under the leadership of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.

“This incident was created to tarnish the image of the present Government as well as the country and to bring disrepute to the President and the Prime Minister before the international community,” Minister Amaraweera said. “The former Minister Rajitha Senaratne should be taken into custody by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) with regard to the Swiss Embassy incident because it is he who knows it. He made certain revelations regarding the incident to several TV channels as if he had seen it with his own eyes.”

Continuing further, the Minister said this was a conspiracy hatched against the Government. He said there had never been such a people-friendly Government because it was this Government which provided incentives and relief measures for people within a very short period. He said corruption, malpractice and discrimination reigned in alarming proportions during the previous regime.

“But the present regime has led to massive transformations in every sphere,” Minister Amaraweera said. He said while shouldering the legacies of problems created by the previous regime, the incumbent Government is forging ahead with development projects that were curtailed by the previous regime.”
