In a harsh criticism against Justice Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe, Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka said the Minister is a thief and a racketeer. “ I say without any fear” Fonseka said at a press conference held in Colombo today.
Fonseka also accused Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe of accepting bribes to cover-up the controversial Avant Garde floating armory incident.
“Not only Rajapakshe, but Minister Vajira Abeywardena is also behind this,” Fonseka asserted.
He also went into say since the Avant Garde Security Service had functioned against the international maritime rules and regulations, it is important to investigate under whose directions it acted.
