He said this in response to a question asked by a journalist outside the Colombo Chief Magistrate’s Court premises.   

Mr. Rajapaksa was present in court when the case against former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Avant Garde Maritime Security Services Chairman Nissanka Senadhipathi was taken up for hearing. While leaving the court premises, the former president alleged the government was taking revenge on its political opponents.    “They can’t do anything other than taking revenge using the services of the FCID and the CID,” he quipped.
