Former Minister Keheliya Rambukwella, former President's Secretary Lalith Weeratunga and former Treasury Secretary P.B. Jayasundera were today questioned by the Presidential Commission of Inquiry to Investigate and Inquire into Serious Acts of Fraud, Corruption and Abuse of Power, State Resources, and Privileges (PRECIFAC).

The Commission's Secretary Lacille De Silva said statements were recorded from them for two hours each concerning the Rs.115 million loss suffered by the State-owned television station ITN for telecasting the then President Mahinda Rajapaksa's advertisements, which had not been paid for.

De Silva said they were questioned separately.(Ajith Siriwardana)

    Why all the fuss. If the advertisements were ordered my someone, bill him and if not paid sue him or her. Save the public fins to feed the poor..
