Harin Accuses Gotabhaya Of Still Being An American Citizen: Says Name Still Not On U.S. Federal Register

November 10, 2019

UNP MP Harin Fernando has accused Podujana Peramuna Presidential candidate Gotabhaya Rajapaksa of continuing to mislead the pubic by pretending to have given up his U.S. citizenship, when in fact he is still an American citizen.

MP Fernando bases his information on the fact the Rajapaksa’s name does not appear on the U.S. Federal Register containing names of those who have renounced U.S. citizenship.

In a tweet earlier today, MP Fernando drew attention to how Rajapaksa’s spokesman had insisted—when his names was not carried in the last report—that his name would be carried in the third quarter report, and said that the fact that Rajapaksa’s name was not included meant that as a citizen of the U.S. he would not be able to function as President even if elected.
