UdayangaSri Lanka’s former Ambassador to Russia, Udayanga Weeratunga, who is wanted in Sri Lanka over allegations he sold arms to rebels in Ukraine, has met former President Mahinda Rajapaksa in Thailand.

Weeratunga said in a statement today that he met Rajapaksa when the former President visited Thailand this week.

The former Ambassador said that he has no intention of returning to Sri Lanka since “baseless” allegation have been raised against him by the Government.

The Government had removed him from diplomatic service and has sought to question him over the allegations that he sold arms to the rebels in Ukraine.

He said that the Government has frozen his accounts over false claims and he hopes to raise the issue with the Russian and Ukraine Governments.

Weeratunga also said that he will gather support among Sri Lankans living in Russia and Ukraine against the Government. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. christine Welangoda ,This government is led by foreign powers who are on the run to create disharmony among the the countries for the benifit of creating US navel power The tactics used so far and clearly seen in the middle east are some. They Fist create Fear and dishamony among leaders to weaken the political strength of the country as the fist step, “united we stand devided we fall” This fall was achieved without much effort in Srilankan heroes were turn into criminals over night, see how easily our nation could be brain washed.The second step of breaking peoples power was also achived, thanks to our blind leaders who have already become’ Boot lickers’ of the western saviors on the run bombarding infants, children women.men,homes and centuries old cultures into dust. Hope Srlanka will not meet the same fate emerging meraculesly from a leethal LTTE terrorism. God save our beloved land. and give us leaders to set examples of unity and tolerance and leadership.Srilanka is a very bad example of political disunity, since this new government came into power.

  2. Bold statement Antary …..conspiracy theory number 1254 …and your evidence , verification of claim ……or do we just take your word as a good citizen without a chip on your shoulder against the west

  3. You said it right Antany. These Yaha Paalana lokkaas are taken for a ride by the U.S and the west. Anyone can see that it is the rulers who are changed, but the same system continues. Even the so much bragged about media freedom is coming to an end. This show is a total hoax. It is manipulated by the Master Puppertere Satellite to enjoy power till her last days. That is the truth.

  4. If false allegations are framed why don’t you come to Sri Lanka and prove your innocence. That should be the advise of a honest President as well.

  6. The Westerners are guiding the good governance leaders. However, we all know that the Westerners fool others by occupying the moral high ground by faking their morality. Seems like good governance leaders are learning quickly from their Western masters.
