The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) has recorded a statement from former President Gotabaya Rajapaksa over the recovery of Rs.17.85 million from the President’s House on 9th July 2022.
Police Spokesman SSP Nihal Thalduwa said the CID has recorded a nearly three-hour statement from the former President following a court order.
Earlier, the Fort Magistrate’s Court ordered the Police to record a statement from Gotabaya Rajapaksa pertaining to the millions of rupees in cash found at the President’s House during mass protests last year.
The money was found by protesters when they stormed the presidential residence during mass anti-government protests.
SSP Thalduwa said the CID officers visited the former President’s residence on Monday to record a statement in this regard. (Darshana Sanjeewa Balasuriya)
