The Financial Crimes Investigation Division (FCID) on Monday (1) recorded a statement from former first lady Shiranthi Rajapaksa for over two hours on a bank account transaction, the police Spokesperson said.

The statement was recorded at a venue outside the FCID due to security measures, Spokesperson ASP Ruwan Gunasekara added. The from former first lady was summoned for an inquiry over alleged corruption in connection with the bank account of a non-governmental organisation.

A demonstration was also held in Hambantota on Sunday (31) in protest over the decision to summon the former first lady to the FCID.
In a post on social media Namal Rajapaksa MP earlier claimed that, 

“My Mother just received a notice to appear before the Financial Crimes Investigation Division (FCID). My Mother has always stayed away from politics. Does she deserve this harassment?! “Yahapalanaya” seems just a facade for this government. Vengeance isn’t “good governance.” Targeting my Mother proves it. President Rajapaksa and I, as politicians, are always ready to face political vengeance. But I wish they would leave my Mother & brothers alone.”
