In response to what transpired in court, State Minister Sujeewa Senasinghe said he was unaware that his campaign teams received cheques worth Rs.3 million from W.M. Mendis & Company Limited.

The State Minister told Daily Mirror that he had five teams handling various aspects of his campaign at the 2015 parliamentary elections.

“These committees collected donations from well-wishers for campaign financing. Every financial activity was handled by a gentleman named Amal the campaign teams are unaware of a nexus with W.M. Mendis & Company. Had I known, I would not have allowed them to accept anything," he said.(Kelum Bandara)

    Of course you will not know anything, just like RK. How then was the book published. Our guess is that it is much more.

    Another case of 'duminda silva syndrome'

    Lion Thursday, 07 June 2018 09:09 PM

    Answers similar to dsyasorry are appearing everywhere.There is no difference between you and Dayasiri.Only difference is in the amount.Remember this is the man who distributed goods attaching his name to the parcels during kolonnawa floods and also built a house violating all the regulations in hantana kandy.

    Thanks for reminding.

    Not the politicians... people of this country should be changed... Knowing all of them are culprits we elect them to the parliament and allow them to continue the same misdeeds..

    Preethi Thursday, 07 June 2018 09:28 PM

    Election was in 2015 August. Then why 2 million in 2016? By the way these are only cheques. What about cash payments?

    Looks like SL is overflowing with money which leads to corruption. In the old days I had to count my cents to buy a fag. I did appreciate the free bath parcel that was provided by a certain party. Corruption does come in different ways.

    Ralahamy Thursday, 07 June 2018 10:37 PM

    As a ex government servant, I could not even dream of saving One Lakh leave alone 3 million. My head spin has not stopped. Why did I work so hard to serve this country when jostlers are floating in stinking money.

    Sunil Friday, 08 June 2018 08:00 AM

    Please remember that even the speaker mentioned about another crooked politician who had his hand in the PTL till "he had taken only one million rupees".

    How many million rupee cheques have you received from any other source? No wonder you made footnotes in the COPE report.

    I shall hold the President responsible for not having a back bone to settle this matter and thereby bringing humiliation to our nation.

    These clowns think the moment they say 'I can't remember' or 'I'm not aware', we the stupid asses have to believe it with our heads bowed. They should be taken to any law enforcement place and hammered till they poop, then they'll surely remember.

    You all are either unaware or forgotten! We will sort out all these problems at the next election!

    If you do not know what is happening under your roof how can you sort out things happening under roof of your own electorate and Sri Lanka.?

    Sunil Friday, 08 June 2018 08:24 AM

    If it is your campaign, you have to know from where you are receiving especially big amounts you are accountable. Please resign.

    Jaliya Friday, 08 June 2018 08:30 AM

    Typical third-world political rhetoric, these politicos have no backbone courage or morals to accept the allegations and take the responsibilities. We do not need untruthful/unethical/hypocritical/money swindling/party jumping/ irresponsible/mudslinging/abusive/selfish/dishonest/idiotic and lawbreaking bustards to govern the country. What we need is a foreign governing body from an industrially developed nation and an international judiciary to clean up sri lanka.

    Tck Friday, 08 June 2018 08:35 AM

    2016 there was no Election. Must be for the foot notes capanage. Hon Mr Preident along With Hon Pm and Hon CJ activate the new court system. Asap.

    Common Sense Friday, 08 June 2018 10:19 AM

    My earnest request to Sujeewa Senasinghe is, please visit Chief Priest of Malwattu Chapter and find-out whether you have done a correct thing or not. If the Chief Priest says your behavior is wrong, then please resign from your portfolio and apologize the poor people in this country.I could remember once you visited this Chief Priest, the Chief Priest praised your honesty and thanks your parents for bringing up a child like you. Please note this is serious.

    Does that mean that your left hand did not know what your right hand was doing ?Or are you suffering from Dementia at such a young age ?

    asela Friday, 08 June 2018 10:35 AM

    This baby faced liar is a baby. He doesn't know anything. He may not know who his parents are. Bloody joke. Shame.

    SAM Friday, 08 June 2018 10:50 AM

    If PTL has given 1B to 118 MPs, then an average of each should have got minimum of over 8.5M where as this 3m or Dayas 1M or Gens .1M is nothing. Where are the other in the list if this is true? How long will it take to get the facts of it? What about Charlies 96M commission he got part by part far before he was received before 2015? This seem to be a political propaganda for elections and for sure the real crooks will never be caught.
