Officials from the Presidential Commission of Inquiry (CoI) are currently recording a statement from former President Mahinda Rajapaksa at his residence in Mirihana.

The statement is reportedly being recorded regarding Rs.200 million in losses incurred by a state media institution during the Presidential Election. 

Former Minister Keheliya Rambukwella, former Finance Secretary Dr. P.B. Jayasundera and former Secretary to the President Lalith Weerathunga have also questioned by the CoI, in this regard.

The commission is investigating a complaint alleging that a certain state-owned media institution had incurred losses amounting to Rs.200 million due to the broadcast of the former President’s adverts without payments and refraining to air Maithripala Sirisena’s paid adverts during the presidential race. 

It is said that payments obtained from Maithripala Sirisena’s campaign were returned without his adverts aired.
