The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) has been informed to conduct an impartial inquiry into whether any financial irregularity had taken place when importing Nano nitrogen liquid fertilizer from India, State Minister Shasheendra Rajapaksa said today.

He told Parliament that importing of nano liquid fertilizer was done with the recommendation and supervision of the Director General of Agriculture Department through legitimate procurement process.

Raising a privilege issue, the Minister said SJB MP Rohini Kumari Kavirathna stated in parliament that he was involved in a fraud behind fertilizer import, defended himself that he had never interfered in the process and said he was ready to face any investigation.

He said the process of nano liquid fertilizer import and distribution took place in Sri Lanka by the state-owned Colombo Fertilizer Company with the approval of the Cabinet following due procurement procedure.

The State Minister also said the controversial organic fertilizer shipment from China was also imported with the recommendation of the Director General of Agriculture Department through the due procurement process with the approval of the Cabinet.(Ajith Siriwardana and Yohan Perera)

    The CID may see stars when they find the cost allocation for marketing and promotion, social media etc. Like as if they will run TV/Radio/press/billboards advertising and social media campaigns on FB/ Twitter/ you tube / Instagram/ tik tok etc, to distribute the fertilizers!

    It is just as well that an independent probe be held. What cost some US$ 3 in India was sold at US$ 12 here in Sri Lanka. This is not an irregularity. It is highway robbery committed in broad daylight,typical of all other dealings of this regime.

    Only an eye wash. You can't fool the public everyday.

    This is why Sri Lanka is in trouble ? corrupt dealings all around and no law to prosecute any of the culprits. I don't know why all these thieves are addressed as "Hon" Minister ?

    CID stands for Conmen In Disguise.

    We cannot call robberies and corruptions, because our learned friend Mr. Romesh de Silva during the proceedings in the court, for DA Rajpukse Museum case declared that 400 million is not sufficient to call it a fraud.

    Was this not the guy who stole from Kataragama temple as the Nilame?
