Former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa says there is no reason for the minorities to hate him.
Speaking to reporters outside the Permanent High Court at Bar, Rajapaksa said that when he was the Defence Secretary the war at the time was against terrorists and not civilians.
He says as a former military officer he feels he has served the country well.
Meanwhile, the Permanent High Court at Bar today heard the case against Rajapaksa.
Rajapaksa is accused of misusing state funds to build the D.A. Rajapaksa Memorial Museum when he was the Defence Secretary.
The Permanent High Court at Bar is to convene again next month to hear the case. (Colombo Gazette)
