Sripati Sooriyarachchi recently made shocking admissions in the Parliament of Sri Lanka regarding a monetary exchange between Gotabaya Rajapakse and the LTTE, with the approval of then presidential candidate Mahinda Rajapakse.
The deal, according to the revelations made was to "assure" the support of the LTTE for the Rajapakse-campaign vis-a-vis blocking the northern-Tamil populace from voting at the election. This proved to be a crucial turnaround in the election, which Rajapakse went on win with a razor-thin majority.
The following video clips (broken down due to size/time restrictions by YouTube) shows MP Sripati Sooriyarachchi making these revelations and allegations against the self-proclaimed war-hero Gotabaya Rajapakse. Gotabaya Rajapakse served in the Sri Lanka Army for a brief period before deserting the ranks and fleeing to the United States, where he has assumed permanent residency as a preliminary step towards citizenship.
