Gotabaya Rajapaksa returns to the island

Former Defence Secretary and Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna Presidential candidate Gotabaya Rajapaksa returned to the island today from Singapore.

He flew to Singapore this week to seek urgent medical attention after receiving clearance from court.

A travel ban had been imposed on Rajapaksa over an ongoing case.

However the ban was temporarily lifted to allow him to travel to Singapore to obtain medical attention.
