Accusations fly during showdown between Senasinghe, JO members

State Minister Sujeewa Senasinghe was involved in a showdown with joint opposition MPs D V Chanaka and Namal Rajapaksa yesterday when the two MPs informed Parliament that Mr. Senasinghe has had more than 54 conversations with Perpetual Treasuries Limited owner Arjun Aloysius.

A heated argument followed after Senasinghe started making allegations against the MPs. “Malli do not shout as I have appeared for your father and got him cleared when he was involved in a case involving some ships," Senasinghe said.

At this point MP Namal Rajapaksa inquired about the contents of the conversation that took place between the State Minister and Aloysius, which elicited a retort from Senasinghe about the validity of legal training obtained by MP Rajapaksa. “I challenge you to answer this question. Everyone knows how you sat for law examinations,” he said.

Coming up with more allegations, Senasinghe brought up the subject of the Thajudeen killing. Undeterred, MP Rajapaksa challenged him to name the person who killed the former National rugby player. State Minister Senasinghe relented and refused to do so.

Later, Senasinghe told journalists that he is prepared to face any probe as he had nothing to be afraid. “I have nothing to be afraid of as I have not done anything wrong,” he said. (Yohan Perera and Ajith Siriwardene)

    The worst crooks are the ones who pretend to fight for justice like Sujeewa.

    Lankika Friday, 17 November 2017 11:35 AM

    Hon Minister Sujiwa called M Arjun Aloysius just to find writing materiel for his book " Bandumkara Andaraya!" noting else.

    It was pathetic to see and hear Sujeewa avoiding answering as to what he discussed with Aloysius over the phone on over 60 occasions. It went to show that he is just another parliamentarian with a foul mouth. I am sure this is the unveiling of another so far hidden crook.

    Sunil Friday, 17 November 2017 04:17 PM

    HE the President should ask all these corrupt MPs to step down.

    Flanker Friday, 17 November 2017 05:13 PM

    shame on you Sujeewa Senasinghe... your outcry clearly shows you are guilty!!! you should resign with dignity and go home...

    garawi Friday, 17 November 2017 05:39 PM

    His accusations of Namal is known to everybody. But this ship affair is self incriminating and is corruption. Needs investigation in my opinion where as the government wants to check all current and previous corrupt deals.

    Mason Friday, 17 November 2017 06:36 PM

    Minister Senasinghe, you are trying to evade Namal Rajapakse's question because there is more between you and Aloysius. We too would like to know what transpired between you and Aloysius in the conversations. If you are honest come out clean, at least at this late stage.

    TONY Friday, 17 November 2017 06:55 PM

    THIS CORRUPTION CHARGE FROM ONE SIDE OF THE WELL TO OTHER SIDE NEVER WILL END UNTIL THESE PARASITES ARE REMOVED FROM THE ASSEMBLY

    It was alarming to see that an MP suggesting to hang himself to another MP in the uththarithara parliament. This is a new level of lowness. This guy has single handedly tarnished his own parents, school and his voters by behaving in a third class fashion. Shame on those who voted to a joker like this.

    concerned citizen Monday, 20 November 2017 09:28 AM

    I hate Namal for all what he and his family has been up to and will never vote for him. Nevertheless so disappointed with the behavior of Sujeewa in Parliament . He did not have the guts to give a reply o the question instead went low low and low .
