Mahinda makes another appearance at PRECIFAC

DNP_9436 copyFormer President Mahinda Rajapaksa appeared before the Presidential Commission of Inquiry on Fraud and Corruption (PRECIFAC) today to make a statement.

Rajapaksa is accused of using State media to promote his Presidential election campaign ahead of the January Presidential election, without paying the amount quoted to other candidates.

During an election, under Sri Lankan election laws, candidates are treated equally and State media is expected to give equal coverage and accept a fixed amount for advertisements promoting any candidate.

The former President and his campaign team had allegedly used State television to telecast commercials in support of Rajapaksa on credit and failed to repay the amount although many requests have been made by the new management. (Colombo Gazette)
