In yahapalanaya you have to maintain the official stance of government or else you risk the possibility of arrest, intimidation and removal. This is sick.

Dear Liberal One, IF the government stance is to create a pure and just society yes, you have to follow it or risk arrest and punishment.

What defense secretary said is correct. Account was in the name of Defense Secretary not Mr. Rajapaksha.

This account is not a dummy account. Who is the signatory in the name of Defense Secretary - its non other than Gota. It may be a corporate account, but still its private - not government.This new DS is a puppet........

Isnt this too much? The newly appointed DS has said what he had to say honestly. Second statements cannot be accepted because it could be politically motivated one.

If his explanation is reasonable it should be accepted. Otherwise replacements can always be found.

The Secretary is either ignorant or he is covering up misdeeds. He must be removed immediately

Yahapalanaya also appears to be changing to Dictatorship. This is Sri Lanka. If oliticians are not cheaters they cannot live in Sri Lanka.

I is unthinkable that the present Defence Secretary does not know that receipts from sales of Govt. property should without exception, be credited to the Consolidated Fund ! Abaj

I think the Secretary was too soon to comment on the B/Account and he did so without going deep into the matter. He may have been misled. But, this conduct cannot be expected from a Senior Administrative Official. On a matter of this nature he should be thorough before making a statement - for or against. Anyway, the tone of the statement itself sounded a little funny!

No idea as to why a person without basic government financial regulations is appointed to a such a higher position is state service.
