    3 years too late! Yahapalanaya have so far failed to prove any of the wild allegations. Millions of Rupees of public money have been wasted with these investigations. The people or person who makes false allegations must be made to repay all costs to the government.

    That was coz PM the wheeler dealer was directing investigations and didn't want the real culprits to be questioned or arrested.
