Reportedly, the aircraft carrying Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa from the Maldives has landed in Singapore.

A plane carrying Sri Lanka’s president arrived in Singapore on Thursday from the Maldives, a day after he fled to the island nation.

According to reports, Gotabaya Rajapaksa, his wife Ioma, and their two bodyguards were on board the Saudia airliner that landed at Changi Airport in Singapore at 7:17 p.m. local time.

Yesterday, President Gotabaya Rajapaksa fled to the Maldives in response to a public uprising demanding his resignation over the economic crisis in Sri Lanka.

Despite announcing that he will resign on July 13, the President reportedly fled to the Maldives and then flew to Singapore today, where he is said to have sought asylum.
