The present regime has no intention of going on a witch hunt but it will take against anyone proved to have been involved in fraud or corruption, said Mr. Ruwan Wijewardene, the State Minister for Defence yesterday.


Mr. Wijewardene who spoke to journalists at Mihindu Seth Medura in Attidiya, where disabled soldiers are cared for, said reports on the investigations regarding the arms ship and the arms discovered at the BMICH would be handed over to the President and the Prime Minister shortly.


He said many persons had phoned him and made allegations – some true, and some false.


Mr. Wijewardene said the armed forces would not be moved from the North as they were needed there.


He said the development work begun by the previous regime would not be stopped. He said would begin making field visits tomorrow to inspect the welfare facilities provided for the forces in the North. “I will undertake field visits all over the country and see what the welfare facilities for the forces are,” he said.


Mr. Wijewardene spoke to the disabled soldiers and inquired about their wellbeing and about the shortcomings at the Medura. Most of the inmates were satisfied with the facilities but some wanted transport to travel to and from the establishment. Some wanted their housing problems resolved saying they and their families need shelter.(Yohan Perera and Sanath Desmond)
