Former Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa received a jolt with the arrest of his second son Yoshitha Rajapaksa over money laundering charges. Yoshitha, who is a navy officer, was produced before a designated magistrate court in Colombo and was sent to two-week remand. The police also arrested Rajapaksas media secretary Rohan Weliwita. The present President Maithripala Sirisena has vowed to investigate allegations against Rajapaksas family.
