CPSTL loss; Chairman enjoys six luxury vehicles: UNP

3 June 2013 08:44 am - 16     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Despite the financial losses the Ceylon Petroleum Storage Terminals Limited (CPSTL) suffers, its Chairman had been provided with six luxury vehicles including a BMW, the main opposition UNP charged today.

“Since 2007 the Chairman had three Mitsubishi Monteros,’ UNP Spokesman Gayantha Karunathilake charged at a news conference early today.

“Recently a Land Rover Defender and a double Cab was provided to him. While the CPSTL is showing heavy loses the authorities had given him a BMW vehicle that is worth Rs. 12 million,” he said.

He said cheap fuel deals and corrupt employees were contributing to the losses at CPSTL and added these loses would create a further price hike in fuel. (YP & LSP)

    How dare UNP questions the rights of the Hench-aiya's ? If leaders can order 6 helicopters for the same purpose, why can't the henchies get a LR or two...all public money...who cares?

    All these stories of how the Govt and their yes-men squandering our monies reminds me of the story of the monkey who was given a blade.
