Gotabaya granted safe haven in resort owned by FM’s right-hand man

Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has been granted safe haven in Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi, a property owned by business tycoon Mohamed Ali Janah.
Janah is a close aid of Foreign Minister Abdullah Shahid.
Maldivian staff at the property have confirmed that the First Family is residing in the property. They have expressed their displeasure over the stay.
A night’s stay in the swanky property costs between US$ 5,903 and US$ 8,760.
The Government of Maldives is yet to issue a comment on the issue. Locals and Sri Lankans, however, have condemned the Government for allowing access to Rajapaksa and his family.
