Gota to return today!


Former President Gotabaya Rajapaksa is scheduled to return to the country at the Bandaranaike International Airport, Katunayake at 11.30 pm today (02) from Thailand via Singapore.

The former President was forced to leave for Maldives on July 13 due to the intensified protests by the protesters who stormed the President's House on July 09.

The President, who went to Singapore from Maldives on July 14, arrived in Thailand on August 11.

It was reported that Mr. Rajapaksa, who stayed in Thailand for about three weeks, will return to Sri Lanka tonight (02) after the Sri Lankan Government has given an assurance on his safety.

The Defence Ministry has given instructions to provide special security to former President Rajapaksa and Ms. Ayoma Rajapaksa and also to restore the previous security provided to their residence at Mirihana.

It was earlier too reported that Mr. Rajapaksa would return to the country on several occasions but the scheduled dates were postponed.
