The Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU) will stage a demonstration in front of the Bribery Commission in protest over the decision to summon former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa to the Commission, party’s General Secretary Provincial Councilor Udaya Gammanpila said.
Gammanpila made the observation at a press conference held this morning (22).
The former Defence Secretary has been asked to appear before the Commission on April 23 and 27 over allegations of financial frauds against him.
Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa was also asked to appear before the Commission on April 24. However, Justice Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe on Tuesday (21) told the Parliament that the Bribery Commission will not summon the former President instead the officials will visit him and record a statement.
