Former Defense Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa returned from the United States today and was received by opposition Parliamentarians and a large number of his supporters.
Two civil cases were trooped in the US against Rajapaksa while he was in the US on a private visit.
Rajapaksa however denied the accusations against him saying the case was clearly part of an effort to stop him from contesting the next Presidential elections.
The former Defense Secretary said that he has filed the papers in the US to renounce his US citizenship.
Rajapaksa, a dual citizen, needs to reject his US citizenship to be qualified to contest the election.
