RESTLESS POLITICIANS ON BOTH SIDES DUE TO UPCOMING COURT CASES!
Posted on February 8th, 2021

By M D P DISSANAYAKE

There are several  high profile cases  involving current and former  politicians scheduled to be heard  beginning this month. 

In addition, there are also several Presidential/Prime Ministerial Commissions findings  where public looking forward  for punishment for wrongdoers and relief for aggrieved parties. 

In the past, the recommendations of the Commissions appointed by the Prime Minister and or President  have not been implemented in full.   In fact these reports are not available in the public domain. The current President Gotabaya Rajapakse has committed to dislodge the trend and implement the recommendations.

There are several reports of such Commissions, requiring further action.   The Easter Good Friday Commission, Bond Scam, Commission report on misuse of Rs 11 billion from the Central Cultural Fund were few examples of most recently concluded cases, pending further action.

Other interesting cases involve current and  former Ministers  on alleged White Van fabrication, Swiss Embassy fiasco, bribery case for accepting a gratification for  leasing a luxury penthouse at Monarch Housing Complex at Colpetty, bribery case against a mansion built in Kaduwela for Rs 70 million, thus  making some politicians  panicking ahead of court case hearings.

Using Ranjan Ramanayake case, the politicians are likely to press ahead to create a precedent through the Speaker, in spite of the fact the judgement was delivered by the Supreme Court, with the ulterior motive that future politicians if found guilty  could access the loophole for their advantage.

The public demand punishment for politicians alike if they are guilty. The general public has the utmost confidence in the current regime to ensure clean and independent system of governance.

    All wrongdoers must be brought to the book. Politicians musn’t get into parliament to make money but to serve the country and the people.If you anyone want to make money then work hard and build your commercial venture.In UK I see the retired politicians living in humble accommodation that is in line with their pensions.
