Reason why Gota wasn't arrested

President Maithripala Sirisena said he too has grave concerns with regard to the delay in concluding the investigations and cases pertaining to the killing of Lasantha Wickramatunge, Prageeth Ekneligoda and ruggerite Wasim Thajudeen

The President revealed that in 2016 the parties conducting the investigations on these cases had told him that the investigations were almost over and within a couple of weeks charges could be filed.
