Former Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka arrested

Former Minister Patali Champika Ranawaka was arrested by the Colombo Crimes Division (CCD) today.

He was arrested on the advise of the Attorney General.

The former Minister was produced before a Magistrate and remanded till tomorrow.

A court order had been issued earlier preventing the overseas travel of Ranawaka over an accident in 2016.

The travel ban had also been imposed on his driver over the motor accident.

The Police are investigating the accident in which one youth was seriously injured.

However the former Minister insisted that he was not directly involved in the accident. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Gota is setting up a military government putting secretary’s and chairman’s where ever possible why because he wants to sign the SOFA, ACSA and MCC and sell our land to Americans to setup military camps.
    what happened to the strikes GMOA , railway ,Smurdhi , Port ,customs , teachers ,principals ,nurses petroleum etc etc looks like they have either won there grievances or political agenda.

    I hope Gota will not repeat the same mistakes when leaving office to name few SITAM ,Meetotamulla garbage dump yard , License given to built houses for Muslims in willpathu , Batticlaw sharya university , Uma oya people suffered without water , white elephants port and airport Hambantota ,Cricket ground Hambantota , betrayal of the country with port city project giving title deeds for land to china , selling the Army HQ to China selling the land to China ,selling 15000 hectares to american companies and many crimes we have not forgotten there is nothing for you to be proud learn from your mistakes and do a good job for the country.
