The Jathika Sevaka Sangamaya (JSS) union at the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) alleged that a consignment of 16,000 metric tonnes of substandard petrol imported by the Lanka IOC was today unloaded at the Trincomalee Habour.

The JSS said it had been done despite laboratory reports stating they were of low quality.

However, the CPC rejected these allegations and claimed that laboratory reports had cleared this consignment of petrol.

JSS President Ananda Palitha told Daily Mirror that laboratory tests carried out on the consignment of petrol that reached the China Bay at 4.00 p.m. on Saturday indicated that the contents were of low quality. (Lakna Paranamanna)

    Ultimately innocent motorist will pay the price. Rs. 200/= per Petrol liter is at hands close, where it can be sold for less than Rs. 125/=. May all these corrupted bureaucrats burn in hell......
