State minister, female politician among list of cash recipients

The name of a prominent state minister and a leading female politician from Colombo have surfaced in the list of politicians who had reportedly received money from PTL chief Arjun Aloysius.

The Criminal Investigation Department have come up with these names after having checked numerous bank accounts and related documents in their custody.

More details of this state minister, presently said to be maintaining a close relationship with the leaders of the joint opposition, are expected to unravel in the courts proceedings to follow into the Central Bank bond scam.

The investigators have also recorded several statements from the private staff of the female Colombo politician regarding encashment of cheques for amounts yet unknown.

    If one needs to see women accepting bribes, visit the SLPA pass office and secretly watch how cash is slipped in thru the papers by clearing agents and the women staff beautifully slip it into their drawers.

    " the women staff beautifully slip it into their drawers." --due you mean - the dated humorous meaning as knickers or underpants !

    To me this is the most beautiful country in the world ( geographically)...unfortunately since independence roughs have entered into politics and started to deteriorate the discipline and economy.

    Take the hint.... "having close allies with the joint operation" may be one of the sixteen who jumped off

    Is a female politician taking a bribe somehow worse than a male politician taking one? Anyway, good to see the government imploding from the inside. Not a long wait from now.

    Female politician must have received money for her service. She must have done so well to Alosious.

    If they have distributed this money to poor people they will be called philanthropists like Bill Gates but money wen to the wrong people the corrupt lot.
