Former Sri Lanka PM Rajapaksa, 16 others barred from travelling overseas

Former Sri Lankan PM Mahinda Rajapaksa and 16 other politicians have been banned from travelling overseas by a Sri Lankan Court. This travel ban was imposed as it appeared that the 17 individuals conspired and planned attacks on peaceful protesters on May 9.

A Sri Lankan court on Thursday imposed a travel ban on former prime minister Mahinda Rajapaksa, his son Namal Rajapaksa and 15 others in view of investigations against them for the deadly attack on anti-government protesters in Colombo this week.

The Fort Magistrate’s Court barred them from traveling overseas due to the investigations taking place on the attacks on the GotaGoGama and MynaGoGama peaceful protest sites on Monday, News 1st website reported.

The order was also imposed on parliamentarians Johnston Fernando, Pavithra Wanniarachchi, Sanjeewa Edirimanne, Kanchana Jayaratne, Rohitha Abeygunawardena, CB Ratnayake, Sampath Athukorala, Renuka Perera, Sanath Nishantha, Senior DIG Deshabandu Thennakoon among others.

The Attorney General had requested a travel ban on the 17 individuals, citing that they need to be present in Sri Lanka for the investigations on the attacks on GotaGoGama and MynaGogama as it appears that they conspired and planned those attacks.

Violence erupted in Sri Lanka on Monday after supporters of Mahinda Rajapaksa attacked peaceful anti-government protesters demanding his ouster over the country’s worst economic crisis that led to acute shortages of staple food, fuel and power.

NEW PM TO TAKE OATH TODAY

Meanwhile, Ranil Wickremesinghe is likely to take oath as the new Prime Minister of Sri Lanka today, on May 12.

United National Party (UNP) leader, Ranil Wickremesinghe, will take oaths as the PM at 6.30 pm today, his party confirmed.

Wickremesinghe, who held closed-door discussions with President Gotabaya Rajapaksa last evening, will take oaths as the new PM. After taking the oaths, Wickremesinghe will visit a temple in Colombo and thereafter assume his duties.
