Former MPs scared to face debate: Senadhipathi

Avant Garde Maritime Services (AGMS) Chairman, Major (Retd) Nissanka Senadhipathi today said that former MPs former MPs Patali Champika Ranawaka, Rajitha Senaratne, Arjuna Ranatunge and Anura Kumara Dissanayake were too scared to face a debate with him over the Avant-Garde case.

Senadhipathi was speaking to reporters after he provided evidence for the fifth day today (15) before the Presidential Commission of Inquiry (PCoI) probing incidents of political victimization under the ‘Yahapalana regime’.

Senadhipathi said these MPs were scared to face a debate with him fearing he would reveal how they earned their wealth.

He claimed the MPs have been involved in making ‘black money’.

“Arjuna Ranathunga thinks no military man can become a millionaire. This is a derogatory statement about the Military.”

“I can declare how I earned my wealth and how I became a millionaire, however these MPs won’t be able to do so because their assets have been earned through illegal means.”

Senadhipathi called on Ranathunga to submit details about his house in the USA.

The MPs stand accused by Senadhipathi  for conspiring to shut down Avant-Garde and attempting to create a negative depiction of current President Gotabaya Rajapaksa.
