BIG FISH CAUGHT BY THE BRIBERY COMMISSON

“IT IS REVEALED THAT PRESIDENT'S CHIEF OF STAFF AND STATE TIMBER CORPORATION CHAIRMAN ARE IN BRIBERY NET WHILE ACCEPTING BRIBE OF 20 MILLION RUPEES” 


President’s Chief of Staff and State Timber Corporation Chairman were arrested by Bribery Commission officers yesterday evening while accepting a bribe of 20 million rupees from an Indian businessman. This is with regard to a deal in the shares of the Kantale Sugar Factory. A Bribery Commission official said the suspects had solicited a bribe of 560 million rupees from the businessman but had later agreed to reduce it to 100 million rupees.

The duo had been arrested in the car park of a five star hotel in Colombo while accepting 20 million rupees as an advance payment.

A top official of the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption (CIABOC) said the present government under the leadership of President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe always gives direction and guidance to nab those involved in bribery and corruption irrespective of status and the above high profile arrests too were possible due to this fact.

The Indian investor is said to have presented a proposal to buy shares and develop the Kantale Sugar Factory recently. The duo had allegedly solicited the bribe promising to get approval for the businessman’s proposal.

The President has directed relevant authorities to interdict these officials. The President’s media unit in a statement said the President also ordered relevant officials to strictly implement the law with regards to the above suspects without any interference. This raid which was conducted by the CIABOC will take Sri Lanka in the correct path.This will give a Red Notice to all Corrupt High Profile People.
