Former Secretary to the Ministry of Defence Mr Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, addressing the media, has expressed his regret for finishing the war on terror when he came to the so-called Presidential Commission of Inquiry appointed to investigate serious acts of fraud, corruption and abuse of power, state resources, and privileges (PRECIFAC) few days ago, to give a statement over the Rakna Lanka armoury.
“Today I feel sad to have finished the war. I have had to report to all these commissions just because I finished the war. None of these commissions would be there, if I had not finished the war,” he has said.
Mr Gotbhaya Rajapaksa, rightly guiding the country’s security forces, under the political leadership of Mahinda Rajapaksa managed to crush the decades long terrorist movement within three and a half years and removed the threat to lives of all the citizens including those of the ungrateful politicians ruling the country today and their supporters. As Mr. Rajapaksa has quite rightly revealed, he had to report to all these commissions as a result of ending the war.
