Hail Ravi?

IN-2The UNP hierarchy hails the Minister who answered the Commissioners with a simple “I did not know”.  

This probably will be the manner of answering at subsequent hearings. The ‘Bond Scam’ as referred to by all is not a scam.

The democratically-elected President appointed a Prime Minister and a Cabinet of Ministers in February 2015. They were the hierarchy of the UNP and crossovers types. The well-seasoned ministers immediately got down to the business of plundering the nation’s coffers by colluding with their man at the centre, the Governor of the Central Bank.

This is a betrayal of the people and the President who appointed them. This betrayal is treason. A ‘scam’ it is not. A felony of the worst kind purportedly conspired whilst colluding with banks, primary dealers and officials. To think that it was done surreptitiously by the very persons appointed as the Government of the nation is treason.

Ravi K defamed the honourable State Counsels appearing at the Commission by leading fabricated evidence for their own gain!

Worse, the Government Spokesmen Rajitha Senaratne says that the Commissioners are unfit and ill-equipped to sit, including the Supreme Court Judges and the Auditor General. 

These Members of Parliament do not realise they were elected by the people and for the people. They are servants of the people to act with propriety and humility without favour or fervour. 

Resignations do not matter. All the conspirators have to be punished, not sent off with a slap on the wrist. 

Two COPE sittings chaired by legislators known for their integrity, knowledge and unbiased conduct, never saw the light of day, thanks to the obvious mishandling by the Speaker. 

We hope the Commissioners will deliver a judgment to befit their learned selves, and justice to the people. The immense monetary loss to the country will never be recouped.
