UNP MP Sujeewa Senasinghe today filed a complaint with the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption over the Employees’ Provident Fund (EPF) and Employees’ Trust Fund (ETF) investments in the stock market.
Mr. Senasinghe charged that because of these questionable investments the EPF and the ETF had incurred a loss of Rs.12 billion.
In his complaint he said Central Bank Ajith Nivard Cabraal, Treasury Secretary P.B. Jayasundera, Nimal Welgama, Mano Ramanathan and Neil Umagiliya were those responsible for this massive loss.
Mr. Senasinghe said he hoped the Bribery Commission would take steps to investigate these questionable investments and punish those responsible.
“We have submitted a legal document to the Bribery Commission to ascertain how and under whose advice and influence these investments were made. We hope the Bribery Commission will direct those found guilty to make good the losses incurred by using their own funds and take legal action again them,” he said.

These are good moves by the Opposition. Distribute hand bills in Sinhala and tamil to every household in SL showing the levels of corruption in ruppees billions and what could have been done to the people with that money.FUTA has done an intelligent calculation of the money that was lost as a result of oil hedging and the number of students who could have been admitted to Universities,With that money the country could have produced 4500 engineers needed by SL for the next 15 years.

excellent , the only guy with a backbone in the opposition and willing to go the extra mile , the rest are just fooling around doing absolutely nothing constructive . i dont have any trust or confidence in the judiciary or the police , but such litigation creates visibility and somewhat holds the culprits answerable , we civilians are to be blamed too , we are only archair critics . well done sujeeva , if you keep taking the legal route to fight corruption , i will vote for you , and a plus 150 votes are guaranteed through my personal efforts .

A refreshing development - for the first time in SL history a politician try to do something about corruption of the opposing government rather than mere criticism and waiting for their turn
