27 September 2018 06:10 am - 30     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Development Strategies and International Trade State Minister Sujeewa Senasinghe is reported to have questioned at the UNP electoral organizers’ meeting, as to how the President’s Office referred a complaint against his Ministry and the Board of Investment (BoI) to the Bribery Commission for investigation.

The United National Party had a meeting for its electoral organizers on Tuesday to discuss the organization of the party in view of the future elections.

Parliamentarian Senasinghe had said that ‘a certain party’ had lodged a complaint with the President implicating the Minister, the State Minister and the BoI that they tried to seek bribe for the approval of a project.

He asked how such a baseless complaint could be referred to the Bribery Commission for investigation by the President’s Office.

He said the complainant party had not fulfilled requirements to secure any project to the country.

He told the meeting that the project proposal had transpired through the Single Window Committee after being referred to the BoI.

Also, he questioned as to how the President’s Office leaked information to a certain media organization. (Kelum Bandara)

    should Sujeewa be in parliament? The bond scam beneficiaries should all be arrested and dumped in Jail!

    Rasheed Friday, 28 September 2018 11:19 AM

    But don't forget that the Aloysious had called Sujeewa many times.

    You should be alert that the Big Brother is watching over you.

    Because it is common knowledge that you are a wolf in sheeps clothing.

    One positive thing about this infighting of the government is that some culprits are exposed.

    Nihal Amarasekera Thursday, 27 September 2018 07:14 AM

    We already know you are not genuine; from BOND days my dear.

    Jaliya Thursday, 27 September 2018 07:21 AM

    Got caught and now looking for excuses. "He said the complainant party had not fulfilled requirements to secure any project to the country" yeah we all know what are those requirements that the contractor failed to fulfill ....

    Podi Appuhamy Thursday, 27 September 2018 07:24 AM

    The public have lost confidence in Mr. Sujeeva Semasinghe due to his accepting a bribe from Aloysius.Hence there is reasonable suspicion that he solicited a bribe from the contractor.

    How is your game in central bank sir ? Interesting ?

    Sambo Thursday, 27 September 2018 07:34 AM

    So is it true that you have requested for a "SANTHOSUM" from that project. This is a normal practice in the blood of Sri Lankan politicians.

    Summa Thursday, 27 September 2018 07:43 AM

    The complain came with all the facts which we saw in the media. After trying to rob the country and the nation, this dirty rogue questions the complain ! How has our country developed ?

    ROy Thursday, 27 September 2018 08:09 AM

    You did the sam song and dance during the Bank robbery!

    dulan Thursday, 27 September 2018 08:23 AM

    Govt is undermined by catchers and hangers on with Politicians .However some one should complain about this guy taking money from Aloysius

    Sachi Thursday, 27 September 2018 08:27 AM

    Come come Sujeewa, you as a lawyer should realise that they have done the correct thing. They (presidential secretariat) cannot decide if the allegation is correct. Referring it to the BC is all they can do. BC will decide on the next steps based on the merits of the allegation. If you have nothing to hide this is the best thing to clear your name.

    Jaliya Thursday, 27 September 2018 10:59 AM

    Believe me he has the right to cover up his ass. His hands are only big enough to hold-on to the bribes but not large enough to cover up his ass even if both hands were used.

    Questioner Thursday, 27 September 2018 08:39 AM

    What happened to the 3 million received from Allo?

    Rohitha Thursday, 27 September 2018 08:42 AM

    If the accusations are correct exposing such sordid deals is commendable irrespective of how or who did the exposure.

    Rohantha Thursday, 27 September 2018 08:50 AM

    Why worry if you have not asked for santhosam. Take this opportunity to set the records right

    Riza Thursday, 27 September 2018 09:02 AM

    The BOI is not gazetted under Sujeewa. It’s controlled by Malik and his cronies on the Board. The present BOI Board is the worst performing and without bribes don’t approve projects. The entire board should be replaced now.

    Modaya Thursday, 27 September 2018 09:06 AM

    Make sure NOBODY leaks anything and you lot keep robbing the country left, right and centre..That’s what yahapalana is all about..

    Unchikun Thursday, 27 September 2018 09:30 AM

    Oh! is this the railway project?

    Rizi Thursday, 27 September 2018 10:05 AM

    Oh, answering to the accusation is not the importance for senasinghe but the leakage of the information... SL politics at its best

    Ram Thursday, 27 September 2018 10:19 AM

    Politicians are unhappy when complaints are made against them or their Ministries. Investigation is always better as their names will be cleared. However they must remember there cannot be smoke without fire

    Vasa Thursday, 27 September 2018 10:26 AM

    Anyone has a right to complain.await the will prove if it is baseless or not.sujeewa does not have to get excited.he should welcome an investigation.

    asela Thursday, 27 September 2018 10:33 AM

    This rascal had the same excuse when he was involved in bond scam but finally seen naked when the truth came out.

    Commission Horu Thursday, 27 September 2018 11:26 AM

    Its great to hear that some had the true patriotism to complaint!!! Its always good to nip them on the bud!! This is the only way the country will develop and the ministers will understand that they are there to serve the country not their future generation like how some predecessors did!!! Bravo!

    Foot Noty Thursday, 27 September 2018 12:26 PM

    Aloy wheels turning again.

    Ceylon Thursday, 27 September 2018 12:43 PM

    Sirisena"s secretariat is filled with bribe takers.his main secretaries also court by bribery commission while collecting bribes for some one above them.

    Stardust Thursday, 27 September 2018 01:05 PM
