Colombo, Dec. 4 (Daily Mirror) -  Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has lodged a complaint with the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption in Sri Lanka against MP Roshan Ranasinghe over the alleged misuse of funds provided by SLC to the National Sports Fund for the development of various other sports in Sri Lanka.  

The decision to file this complaint stems from the concern that Roshan Ranasinghe has not appropriately disclosed the utilization of funds allocated by SLC for the intended purposes, SLC said in a statement.

"This move comes in the wake of a discernible disparity between the information disclosed to the media by Ranasinghe and the response received by SLC under a Right to Information (RTI) application, outlining the specifics of the expenditures made," the statement added.

    Bloody joke

    Isn't this an issue of the SLC? Payments would have been made by issuing cheques. Who signed the cheques, I am sure it's not the former Minister.

    Rouges are fighting each other to show that they are not rouges.

    It's Allegations and counter Allegations ! Some may be fabricated, just made to counter an allegation. Aren't there Laws to punish anyone who is proved to have made a false allegation ?

    So SLC is trying to muddy the water.

    Sambo Monday, 04 December 2023 07:48 PM

    You parties are slinging mud at each other. This is a typical native habit coming from your habitat.

    I am saddened. All the crooks are in power fighting with each other. Ranil and his boss Mahinda are laughing. Where do we go next.

    It's always has to start from the citizens of the country. Make the change or be the change.

    This is what happens ex-minister who is in a glass house starts throwing stones at others.

    Shreshtha Tuesday, 05 December 2023 11:42 AM

    Yep! People hailing his actions have no idea what a crook he is. Was merely trying to stage a coup to take control for his own cronies from another bunch of crooks.

    SLC has the backing of the govt from the top encouraging corruption and so the SLC is riding high attacking only person who dared to expose the SLC. Did you notice JVP did not back or vote against SLC at last Parliament vote on SLC. They were an accused party to back SLC for favours received.

    Dan Tuesday, 05 December 2023 05:47 PM

    That's the style now. As soon as you are exposed for corruption, the hunter becomes the hunted.
