Secretary of the National Bhikku Peramuna, Ven. Wakumulla Uditha Thero alleged that a large scale operation has been launched by the parties engaged in the frauds of the past regime, to win a saintly ideology for former President’s secretary Lalith Weerathunga through his imprisonment.
“The former government is the most corrupted regime in Sri Lankan history. The offenders of the Rajapakse regime are trying to win a new ideology for those who were imprisoned due to their shortcomings and to mislead the law” stated the Thero while addressing a media briefing held today(11).
“An uncertainty prevails among the public that the punishment given to the verdict might change although he was sentenced to a three-year imprisonment.”
“However, the law does not exempt allegations that are levied against the present government by the misdeeds of the former government.
It is compulsory for the Yahapalana government to take an action against the corrupters of the Central Bank bond scam. We, by any mean, do not agree that the corruptions of the present government could be justified by bringing to light the corruptions of the former government.”He added.
