Won't accept PCoI report - Mahinda

Opposition Leader Mahinda Rajapaksa has refused to accept the Presidential Commission report on the alleged corruption during his government.

Rajapaksa said this in response to Finance and Media Minister Mangala Samaraweera’s statement in parliament yesterday (09) on the ITN issue.

President Maithripala Sirisena had appointed a commission to investigate the serious corruption and fraud and misuse of power during the Rajapaksa regime.

When Rajapaksa rejected this report, Mangala Samaraweera asked him to tell it to President Maithripala Sirisena who has now become his good friend.
