Mahinda Rajapaksa says in a newspaper interview that he will take legal action against the New York Times paper.


Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa yesterday rejected the allegations made by the New York Times article and said no contribution was made by the China Harbour Company to his presidential election campaign in 2015.

In a media statement, Mr. Rajapaksa said if any election campaign contributions had been made to him by China Harbour Company, the Port City contract would not have been restored to them and neither would they have been allowed to bid for the lease of the Hambantota harbour.
