Snail pace probes result of political deals: JVP

The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) said today that when considering the slow pace of the investigation process it wondered whether the Government had entered into political deals with those alleged to have committed fraud and corruption during the tenure of the previous government.

“We have submitted relevant documents to the FCID, the Bribery Commission and the Courts regarding these incidents. But the investigations are proceeding at a snail’s pace. We urge the Government to hasten the investigation process,” MP Vijitha Herath said.

He said the Government’s explanation for the delay in the investigation process was not acceptable and release of former MP Sajin Vaas Gunawardene on bail is one of the incidents which points fingers at the Government entering into political deals with the miscreants. (Ajith Siriwardana)

    Thank you Mr Herath. Either the wild accusations against the previous government constituted mere election propaganda - not to be taken seriously. Alternatively wheeling and dealing is going on at a massive scale.

    The JVP, just fishing for votes. A party with no vision to uplift the standard of living for the masses. Only opposing and criticising. We do not want you bunch.

    Criticising your own tail, herath , you are also a big part of the yahapalana

    Certainly, because half the crooks who were part of the 40 thieves of Ali Baba's governance are part of the new yahapalana. So what more can we expect.
