Police raid MR’s country home

Police raid MR’s country home

Embattled former Sri Lankan president Mahinda Rajapaksa’s country home in the southern province has been raided by police who were looking for a luxury sports car but the search reportedly drew a blank.

“They raided our house in Tangalle yesterday looking for a Lamborghini car,” said MP Namal Rajapaksa, the former president’s elder son.

Police spokesman Ajith Rohana said the search was done on a court warrant but it drew a blank.

“They have been harassing us by searching not only our own houses but those of our friends. We can’t visit homes of our associates because they get their places searched,” Namal said.

He said the police complaint was based on false information that they were hiding a sea plane and tyres of racing cars.

“All they found was a pedal boat used by pre-school children,” Namal said.
