Housing and Construction Minister Wimal Weerawansa yesterday said if saboteurs within the government were responsible for the fuel hedging gamble in which Sri Lanka might have to pay hundreds of millions of dollars to banks, tough action must be taken against these officials, whoever they may be.

Addressing a meeting at Homagama the minister said these officials if found guilty must be compelled to pay this money. “If they cannot pay their property and other assets must be confiscated. If they don’t have sufficient assets, they must be jailed for this criminal gamble,” he said.

The minister said if the government paid this huge amount from public funds, the country would face serious economic problems.

    when we are going to have a positive news from sri lankan politics?? or is it just a dream ?

    citizen Saturday, 16 July 2011 04:20 AM

    This amount has to be paid by the politicos from their robbed money and not from the public fund.All the govt. ministers and MPs assets should be ceased and sold by public auction for this purpose.
    Today wimal will tell all these things but behind he will be laughing at the public.

    you may proud of your high position as minister, go ahead and enjoy privileges.in public eye you are a lair and traitor after what you preached and what you have done now people believe no one.
