Chairman of the Public Platform National Movement Ven. Ulapane Sumangala Thera has questioned how the Sinhala newspaper, Janayugaya, which is alleged to have been…… published with funds accrued from the CB bond scam, is supplied with millions of rupees worth of Government advertisements.

The Thera told the media yesterday that the said newspaper has been supplied with Rs 500 million worth of advertisements from the banking sector and lotteries board in the recent past.

Ven. Sumangala Thera charged that the rent of houses occupied by Ministers supplying such advertisements had been allegedly paid by Arjuna Aloysius, the owner of the said newspaper.

He charged that the majority of such advertisements had been supplied to Janayugaya from institutions coming under the purview of the Finance and Media Ministry.

The Thera charged that the money accrued from the CB bond scam has been circulating throughout the country in various forms and cited the ethanol factory that was being built in the Eastern Province as an example.
