Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa arrived at the Special Presidential Commission to probe large scale corruption to give a statement a short while ago.

Rajapaksa was expected to give the statement, regarding alleged failure to make payments for election adverts broadcasted on a state-owned television channel, yesterday however it was postponed to today.
