Colombo Additional Magistrate Nishantha Peiris today permitted the FCID to check the bank accounts of two private companies, Nimbus and Steel Impex.

The two companies are alleged to have provided funds to the then transport minister and the then SLTB for a tour of India between December 9 and 11of 2011.

This matter had cropped up during an inquiry into a case of violating tender procedures for the import of spare parts for SLTB buses by the two companies. (Shehan Chamika Silva)

    If looted money cannot be recovered, jail sentences should be trebled. Anyone who has provided any technical or professional advise should also be jailed for a long, long time. If effective deterrents are in place, we will see less looting of public money.
