UPFA General Secretary and Minister Mahinda Amaraweera today said State Minister Sujeewa Senasinghe has made a serious mistake by blaming the President for appointing the Presidential Commission to probe the Bond issue.
Minister Senasinghe recently said that he was badly disappointed about the President and called on the President to appoint Commissions to inquire into ship deals, MiG deals, spectrum deals and advertising firms.
Addressing the weekly Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) media briefing, Minister Amaraweera said State Minister Senasinghe was not a Cabinet minister and therefore he cannot know what was happening in Cabinet meetings.
“People know that there is no fault at President Sirisena appointing a Commission. If someone is against the Presidential Commissions, that means he is ignoring investigations against frauds. If they are saying that the President was elected on January 8 to continue their frauds, that would never become true. As UPFA we approve the decisions taken by the President,” Minister Amaraweera said. (Chaturanga Pradeep)
What Sujeewa said was true. Its time SLFP and UPFA accept the truth.

Sujeewa was right, President where is the inquiry for MiG and Uma OYA and the other very big true crimes ?? CB Bond sales was an estimate lost in imaginary numbers - but your PA ministers have robbed the nation with billions of actual money - where is the President Commission for that ???

What he said was "why were P Commissions not established also, for all the major fraud pre 2015 January, like Central Bank Bonds, Greek Bonds, Mig deal, Ships, Divi Neguma, Comm Games, and the list goes on ?

If you carefully analyze his speech, he is saying that the president should not have investigated the robbery as those people involved in it have supported the president to become president. Instead the president should investigate the crimes of those who did not support him. Listen again carefully.

Truth is always bitter to those who live a lie. I am glad Sujeewa spoke out finally. If Sirisena wanted to eradicate corruption he should have appointed commissions long time ago starting with Avant Garde!

Sujeewa should be removed as a state minister. He has become too big for his boots.
