Thus, a case listing the accused, if as claimed including Gotabaya Rajapaksa, has not yet surfaced in courts. Gota makes statementIn a brief statement he made to the crowds; Gotabaya Rajapaksa made a significant revelation – he has NOT handed in his papers yet for the renunciation of his US citizenship. Top members of the family had warned Gotabaya Rajapaksa before departure that he should keep a safe distance from the person. The law suits against Gotabaya Rajapaksa are clearly intended to delay, if not scuttle, the US government from renouncing his citizenship. Whether this is with the approval of President Sirisena, tacit or otherwise, remains unclear.
