GL’s party behind 32 out of 34 corruption, fraud incidents Featured

Members of the joint opposition affiliate SLPP led by G.L. Peiris are responsible for most of the fraud and corruption that have been investigated by a presidential commission, said state minister Dilan Perera yesterday (08).

Speaking at a public rally at Pattipola, Perera said 32 out of 34 incidents reported to the commission investigating serious fraud and corruption were involving SLPP members.

He also said the UNP neither, could be trusted and voted into power, as they were like Ali Baba and the 40 thieves.

The working people’s money had been swindled through the Central Bank bond scam and the EPF money scam, he said.

What is left is the UPFA led by the president that acted, by appointing commissions, to punish the thieves irrespective of their political affiliations, said the state minister.

Perera said the upcoming mini-polls could not change regimes, but that the president had the powers to change their composition.
