Sri Lanka is bankrupt and protestors blame the current economic crisis on just one family. For the past 20 years the Rajapaksas have been in power, they’ve been accused of financial mismanagement at best and siphoning millions of public funds at worst. But they have never been convicted of any crimes. At the time of publishing, Ranil Wickremesinghe has been appointed the president of Sri Lanka. Former President Gotabaya Rajapaksa had fled to Singapore. The Supreme Court of Sri Lanka has imposed an overseas travel ban on his brothers, Mahinda Rajapaksa and Basil Rajapaksa.

Really not mentioning the Pandora Papers??
Same story with the Marcos family. Ironically, people still voted Marcos into presidency again.
Just sell Sri Lanka to New Zealad & Australia.
Thank you VICE and the big steal production team for bringing in an episode about Rajapakse’s.
SRI LANKA a country who only take supports from India ...but only support china and Pakistan a traitor country
"40 family members hold government positions"
has some concerns about nepotism
You fucking got what you deserved in my opinion. How would you ever let it get so bad and then only after your country collapses you start complaining about them stealing money. I'll give you a hint. If 40 fucking members of one family are in the government they are fucking stealing something
First time watching a journalist from my country covering a news for vice news, you are really an amazing Journalist kuya Atom!
Rajapaksa family literally made Sri Lankan government like a family business
The Rajapaksas are the real terrorists of Sri Lanka.
I am a former Sir Lankan now living in a different part of the world and I must say these people had it coming! If the majority decided to elect moron based on ethnicity rather than merit then this is what you get. Lets see If the majority learn their lesson from this failure.
Learn from Singapore on how to elect smart politicians who will better the nation.
this host atom araulo is a terrorist CCP-NPA affiliate😁
masquerading as a journalist, her mother is a CCP-NPA-NDF cadre legal front💀
I give Sri lanka 40 years and for sure one of the Rajapaksa sons would be elected as president by Sri Lankans.
Religion based politics destroyed Sri Lanka 🇱🇰. They targeted Tamil Hindus and then later Muslims, To keep in power.
change the name of the country now to Chinangka
The fact that there are people who still support the Rajapaksha family makes me lose faith in humanity😐
Dear Vice, get ready for another "Great Steal" investigative report on another Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and its Rajapaksa family, the Sheikh Hasina's family.
They elect an entire family to government, allow nepotism without accountability and now they cry becuz they suffer ? Irony
Sounds like all African leaders
