The Litro Gas Lanka has paid a monthly allowance of Rs.95,000 to Ven. Dambara Amila Thera since 2015, it was revealed at the Special High Court (SC) established to hear cases of large-scale corruption.
The Company’s Financial Controller Muditha Thamanagama has revealed this during the hearing of the case in which former President’s Chief of Staff Gamini Senarath was accused of allegedly misappropriating Rs. 500 million belonging to Litro Gas Lanka.

The constitution provisions the Supreme status to Buddhism so such payments can be justified based on advisory services for the progress organizations like litro gas

Is it illegal to accept money from a company? If the company is not a crooked outfit, what is the fuss?

Giving this amount to a thero is peanuts compared spending 2.9 billion of tax payers money as election bribes.

The biggest threat to Buddhism and her discipline and preaching's are the Sinhalese. Sangamittra Thera did the biggest mistake when he converted Sinhalese to Buddhism.

Mixing Politics with religion a lethal cocktail. Well if the president, prime minister and the parliament can steal and protect the criminals why not the rest of the industry and country? Thanks to MR and his siblings, stealing and thuggery can be done with impunity and in fashion. The icing on top of it all, are the people who support the gang after all the destruction to the country..
