The Financial Crime Investigation Division (FCID) yesterday interrogated former defence secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa from 9.30 a.m. till 3.00 p.m. on the controversial MIG deal and about a questionable share transaction by Lanka Hospitals Ltd.

He didn’t talk to the media but drove away from the premises soon after the interrogation ended in the afternoon. A complaint was recently lodged at the FCID about a questionable share transaction at Lanka Hospitals under the chairmanship of Mr. Rajapaksa between 2009 and 2014. Mr. Rajapaksa had a few days ago filed a Fundamental Rights (FR) application seeking an interim order staying his arrest by the FCID.
