Details collected on Dubai accounts of Rajapaksa’s family

Details have been collected related to the Dubai accounts of the family of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Cabinet co-spokesman Rajitha Senaratne said that investigations into the illegal funds stored in the Dubai accounts are ongoing and important information is expected to be revealed soon.

In 2015 the Government had said that Namal Rajapaksa, the son of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, had an offshore account in Dubai with millions of US dollars.

The Government had also said that the United States and India were assisting Sri Lanka in the investigations into the account as well as other offshore accounts of the former regime.

The Government had also said that money had been collected by the former Government saying it was to be used for road construction and other development work but most of it was transferred into offshore accounts.

However the former President denied the claims. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Why has the government not engaged a top asset recovery company on taking office?
    These funds cannot be well hidden by uneducated Rajapaksas.
