    ...exactly how fraud was treated during MARA era.

    As long as laws are weak, people don’t fear to accept bribe. This is a good example. Remember, President’s chief of staff accepting a bribe and being arrested? RK having his rent paid as a bribe? In normal course, that creates fear in others to take bribes. But when the law or the Govt. doesn’t act to punish, this will continue. Just like the sunrise.

    HaHaHa .... Just like a SUNSTROKE !!

    RK's rent paid as a bribe? It goes far beyond that. The entire "penthouse" was given to him as a "gift", but unfortunately he does not remember it. What ingratitude?

    At central enviornment authority to get the planning clearance approved, colombo section demand a huge amount from every applicant.

    Prior to this person, this position was held by the Planters.

    It is strange the surface of the bribe accepted by LDB Chairman, whereas huge amounts have been taken by several prominent politicians and high ranked officers in various government departments have not come to light. Hope the Bribery Officials should do their job without fear or favour for the sake of our lovely country Sri Lanka to redeem from the current economic crisis.
