According to a B report filed in Court today by the prosecution in connection with the inquiry into the CB bond scam, State Minister Sujeewa Senasinghe had received three cheques of Rs.1 million each in 2015 and 2016 from W.M. Mendis & Company Ltd., a subsidiary of Perpetual Treasuries Ltd.

The report stated that a former Sub Inspector, who was a member of the state minister’s security detail, had cashed one of the three cheques received in 2015 at a bank in Slave Island.

The other two cheques received in 2015 and 2016 were cashed by two other police officers attached to the state minister’s security detail.(Yoshitha Perera)

    Xi Jinping Thursday, 07 June 2018 08:24 PM

    Does the same apply for fonseka?

    Lion Thursday, 07 June 2018 09:14 PM

    Will give a chance for 2 reasons . Coming out voluntarily saying that he received Rs1 lack and secondly for the enormous contribution he made to rid this county from terrorisem

    Adwani Friday, 08 June 2018 07:30 AM

    Corrupt is corrupt there was no terrorism in Sri Lanka, the Tamils fought for injustice done to them from 1956 to 1983, but failed to enter into an agreement.

    How much the common candidate received at the 2015 presidential election. This will never be disclosed for sure but it is the truth people would like to know

    Yehiya Friday, 08 June 2018 09:16 AM

    If he said, I took the legal fee for company matter.

    Lion Friday, 08 June 2018 11:16 AM

    It's my sincere belief that fony won the election.The conduct of then election commissioner was evident in this regard.

    Preethi Thursday, 07 June 2018 08:11 PM

    Ravi Friday, 08 June 2018 07:12 AM

    Rohantha Thursday, 07 June 2018 09:13 PM

    Whatever said n done Arjun seems to be a nice chap considering his generosity in sharing his hard earned money without keeping for himself.

    Ravi Friday, 08 June 2018 07:13 AM

    I wish he gave me also a couple of millions - I never would complain!

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 08 June 2018 08:52 AM

    The only point he did not give the poor but gave it to thieves.

    Rohantha Thursday, 07 June 2018 09:16 PM

    Don't worry. More you received from Arjun A., more VOTES you will get during next election. That is how our voters decides

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 08 June 2018 08:53 AM

    Exactly... my name depicts that.

    IH Thursday, 07 June 2018 09:47 PM

    was there any election in 2016 ? LOL

    The web will gradually spread upwards - and then what shall we all do???

    Faz Thursday, 07 June 2018 10:24 PM

    Vote them back again to Parliament.

    Ceylon Thursday, 07 June 2018 10:15 PM

    Srilankan politics are runing with this kind of donations from well wishers.even today there is no judgement for any wrong doings by any one.all are accusations only.there is no law for not to accept any helps from any one.if this is wrong from.independence to now presidents,pms?cabinets,parliments must put to jail.

    Hemantha Thursday, 07 June 2018 10:21 PM

    God Bless Your !

    Wise Donkey Thursday, 07 June 2018 10:27 PM

    We have not seen a 'salli dansala' like this where millons have been distributed island wide.At this rate I don't think this Mendis Co has left any one who did not receive even just a few thousands like SF. The biggest question is from where do they get this kind of money and how?

    Rew Friday, 08 June 2018 11:11 AM

    Bond Scams 10 - 12 years

    Bakaladasa Thursday, 07 June 2018 10:39 PM

    Oh ! The B report!When is gonna check into the State Hotel?

    Wij Thursday, 07 June 2018 11:36 PM

    These guys have used police officers given to them for their security to do pakkali services, Government should withdraw all such police officers as these politicians misuse them.

    Question Friday, 08 June 2018 07:23 AM

    Amongst the Police Officers - are there Police Women as well ?

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 08 June 2018 08:56 AM

    These policemen also readily do pakkali work bcos they also get personal favors done... such as school for child, transfer of wife's job, promotion, approval of allowances, paid leave etc...and not forgetting part of the loot.

    Manel Friday, 08 June 2018 06:02 AM

    This fellow once mentioned that his mother is a lecturer in some university. Will she be proud of her son's achievements.

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 08 June 2018 08:57 AM

    Yes she will be, bcos she must also have been doing the same in her job.

    Neela Friday, 08 June 2018 06:04 AM

    Out and out crook in the same mould as Rajapaksas.

    Jude Friday, 08 June 2018 06:22 AM

    I don't think The Aloysius Clan have spared any politician in SL !!??? All members are on their "Payroll" !! Wow!! It's true, this is the "Miracle of Asia" indeed!! Huh!!

    Yeti Friday, 08 June 2018 06:30 AM

    Don't know how many more frozen dinosaurs there are in this huge iceberg that will be visible in the near future!!!

    Haramanis Friday, 08 June 2018 06:39 AM

    It is becoming clearer by the day that this is a masterplan by Ranil and Ravi to rob the Central Bank and fund the UNP election campaign. Malik and the top echelons of the UNP must also surely be involved in this scheme. All must be brought to book and prosecuted!!!

    Hi, Mr. Clean, how are you getting on?

    Jude Friday, 08 June 2018 07:48 AM

    SL will never prosper as long as this Party system exist!!!?? What SL should do is!!?? Have only 100 MP'S in parliament !!! They are all individuals and independent!!! No party politics!! The elected 100 members can appoint a leader for set term 5 or 6 years 1 term only!! And that leader called Chancellor or any name other than PM or President!!??

    dulan Friday, 08 June 2018 09:51 AM

    Sounds good to me

    Hassan Friday, 08 June 2018 07:53 AM

    Election was in 2015 and why did he receive money in 2016? Also the Very Very serious issue is SS should not have sat in judgement in COPE over the bond case. All he had to do was to disclose and step aside in COPE. Instead: (1) went to court to stop the first bond report being published (2) wrote a book saying there was no wrong committed (3) part of the foot note group (4) went on media stating nothing wrong had been by Perpetual (4) got Police officers to encase the cheques. Since SS shouts so much that he is Mr Clean he should resign. But how can he live without the power and money that comes with being a state minister? So he will say every excuse and stay on with no shame. Now it’s upto us voter will send him home, next election.

    bumstead Friday, 08 June 2018 10:32 AM

    All these politicos must be sent home in next election. Before that law enforcing authorities must acquire their wealth gained by illegal means.

    Sunil Friday, 08 June 2018 08:05 AM

    Act like the "Lion" you are supposed to be. You have tarnished not only your image but that of another noble institution.

    sana Friday, 08 June 2018 08:11 AM

    Foolish voters will cast their votes to these robbers

    Rilwan Friday, 08 June 2018 08:13 AM

    Time to investigate those close to him who collect and hide his dirty money.

    jaypee Friday, 08 June 2018 08:21 AM

    Yahapalanaya came to catch Rogues but they could not catch a single. However they themselves are getting caught silly. Does this mean that last Regime was smarter in all aspects?

    REEZ Friday, 08 June 2018 11:21 AM

    Of course yes. No media freedom, No Judicial freedom, There own Police, White van threats, Murders etc.etc.

    Sp Friday, 08 June 2018 08:23 AM

    MR PATH IS FOLLOWED BY UNP.. CORUTTED POLITICAL CULTURE..

    Machan Friday, 08 June 2018 08:36 AM

    This is what happens when you stay in the opposition for too long. You lack the experience to develop the country as well as how to rob from it. You should have wait for sometime until you got the know how.

    Pachaya Friday, 08 June 2018 09:11 AM

    Two people received 2 brand new apartments each. Who are they ? Under whose name?Slowly, slowly worms in the can comings out

    don Friday, 08 June 2018 09:13 AM

    CID to be commended for being impartial.CID should reveal others as well. These politicians speak with " HAKKE BUDURES, BOKKE DADA MASS"

    Robber Friday, 08 June 2018 09:32 AM

    What disgraceful representatives of the people who casttheir votes and sent them to Parliament? This is what wasrevealed, but what about the other illegal earnings from other sources? Sujeeva, Dayasiri and others will somehow talk their way through as they are lawyers and hoodwink their listeners.

    Paranagama Friday, 08 June 2018 09:45 AM

    What I wanted to say has already been said. Can we have a general election please ?

    dulan Friday, 08 June 2018 09:52 AM

    He said he has a super rich brother abroad and he finances him!

    dulan Friday, 08 June 2018 09:53 AM

    I love Aloysius he is doing more than JVP and Prabakran to get rid of our Ministers and MPs without any violence at that

    Common Sense Friday, 08 June 2018 09:54 AM

    This is the person who had requested for a ministerial portfolio in the cabinet blaming the Hon.PM that he is being under-utilized. One of the UNPers who revolted against the Hon. PM.

    Janaka Friday, 08 June 2018 10:59 AM

    Something is not right, a poor man steal something like few coconuts to feed his family, we put him behind bars and beat the poor bastard before even police arrive... Here we have educated, rich , people elected so called leaders robbing the whole nation daylight ,I am confused.....

    Jon Friday, 08 June 2018 11:01 AM

    Add this to the permit vehicle you sold, damn shame. Living off the state, came into government to self gain. Do your job. Disgraceful.

    VJ Friday, 08 June 2018 11:10 AM

    It is better you quit now before you are forced to leave. At least you can go back to your law practice, there are enough criminals in this country you can represent, and they in turn will make you rich.
