Two people, including a brother of a former Sri Lankan cricketer, had been importing ethanol illegally, after buying over politicians, Minister Ravi Karunanayake said in Parliament.

Mr. Karunanayake said these two had been carrying on this racket by bribing politicians of the former regime and had tried to bribe some members of present regime as well.

"These two persons go behind politicians and use them for their racket. We have found out these details from the Excise Department. Their names are Jayalath Peiris and Sasitharan (who is a brother of a Sri Lankan cricketer)," he said.

He said these two had got down three containers loads of ethanol in the recent past.

The minister said the government received no support from the Judiciary or the Attorney General when it tried to bring crooks to book. (Yohan Perera)
