Parliamentarian Geetha Kumarasinghe made a startling revelation last week when she claimed that several politicians including ministers held dual citizenship.

The Court of Appeal last week ruled that Kumarasinghe was disqualified to be a Member of Parliament due to her dual citizenship status.

Political experts stated that the court ruling would create a situation where the issue of dual citizenship would be closely monitored.

In addition, several MPs including Minister Dayasiri Jayasekara and JVP Propaganda Secretary, Vijitha Herath had said that several politicians would now feel the heat following the Court of Appeal ruling.

It is expected that many politicians holding dual citizenships would be exposed in the near future following Kumarasinghe’s claims.

Kumarasinghe speaking to the Nation, claimed that she had denounced her Swiss citizenship when she took oaths as an MP in 2015.

She also claimed that there were other MPs and Ministers holding dual citizenship, speaking on the issue had reportedly said that the law should be applicable to all the same way.
