Singaporean authorities say they have no intention of providing security to Rajapaksa
Gotabaya Rajapaksa the Sri Lankan President arrived in Singapore for a private tour, said the Foreign Ministry of the Great Merlin’s Land.
Issuing a statement, the Singaporean Foreign Ministry emphasised that Rajapaksa made no request to provide him security, nor does the Singaporean government intend to provide him so.
Singapore does not approve of requests for asylum, it added.
Following the historic uprising of the citizens of Sri Lanka against the President and the regime, Rajapaksa fled to Maldives and flew to Singapore thereafter on a VA788 flight belonging to Saudi Airlines. He is believed to leave for Saudi Arabia later.
