Text Size:

Colombo, Jul 13 (PTI) Sri Lanka President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, who is due to offer his resignation on Wednesday, has landed in the Maldivian capital of Malé, sources here said this morning.

Quoting Maldivian sources, they said he was received by a Maldivian government representation at the Velana airport last night.

Earlier on Monday night, Rajapaksa and his brother Basil, also Sri Lanka’s former finance minister, were turned back at the Colombo airport as they attempted to leave the country amid mounting anger against the powerful family for mishandling the worst economic crisis.
