National Freedom Front leader MP Wimal Weerawansa yesterday said that the Joint Opposition (JO) would move a motion of no-confidence against Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe over the treasury bond scams.

Addressing the media at a press conference held at the NM Perera Centre in Borella, MP Weerawansa said the JO leaders would meet on Sunday to decide on the content of the no-confidence motion to be moved against the Prime Minister.

Weerawansa said the treasury bond scam was the biggest ever fraud in the country’s history and Prime Minister Wickremesinghe was on the top of the list of persons responsible for it. The PM could not absolve himself from the crime by trying to find a scapegoat in former Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake, Weerawansa said.

The NFF leader said the Prime Minister and other ministers responsible for the bond scam had no moral right to hold their portfolios further and they should resign forthwith If they did not resign then President Maithripala Sirisena had to remove them, the NFF leader said.

    Very interesting to see if it happens and who in the JO will vote in favour. I don’t think many would as they need UNP support when other presidential commission reports are out.

    සිරිසේන වේට්ටිය උඩ්ටම උස්සගෙන එයා පත්කරපු කොමිසන් වාර්තාව ගැන අපිට උජාරු.
    මෙයාමනෙ අර්ජුන පත්කිරීමට අත්සන ගැහැව්වෙත්.
    කොමිසන් වාර්තාව පෙන්නනව සිරිසේන පත්කරපු අර්ජුන කරපු වන්චාව හා රටටම කරපු පාඩුව.
    සිරිසේන මුලුවගකීම බාරගන්න ඕනි.
    රනිල්ට, රවිට හා වෙනත් අයට වගකීම පවරන්න බැහැ.
    සිරිසෙනගේ කඩුතලය මතට ඔහුම වැටිය යුතුය.
    Sirisena is carrying on about the Commission he appointed and its report on the biggest financial fraud in the country.
    He is the one who finally appointed Arjuna Mahendran by signing the documents of Arjuna’s apoointment.
    The Commission Report details the fraud, amount lost to the nation by sirisena’s appointment.
    Sirisena should take full responsibility for the appointment of Arjuna Mahendran.
    He cannot pass the responsibility to Ranil or Ravi or anyone else.
    Sirisena Should fall on his own sword.
