Nirupama summoned to CIABOC this week after failing to appear last week

Former Minister Nirupama Rajapaksa, who was summoned to the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery Or Corruption (CIABOC) last Monday to inquire into the assets accumulated as revealed by the Pandora papers, had informed the Commission that she would not be appearing that day due to health reasons.

It was also reported that she had requested the commission to give her another date as she was unable to come on Monday as she was undergoing treatment for an illness.

However, a spokesperson for the Commission said that Nirupama Rajapaksa would be summoned again this week to appear before the Commission.

Her husband, Thirukumar Nadesan, appeared before the commission recently and made a statement.
