    Bribery `INDUSTRY` in Sri Lanka seems to be working at full speed.

    What is the use of increasing funds when the number of cases are also rising??

    Since the inauguration in 1994, the increase in the number of cases is alarming!!!

    This can be eradicated if court cases are quickly heard and harsh punishments handed over to those convicted, irrespective of their political attachments.........

    Mrs. Muralitharan wife of alias Karuna received 25,000,000 rupees and deposited in a Colombo Bank, according to the Daily Mirror. How is that he or his wife escaped arrest or complaints? He continues to be carrying out his terrorist activities, the difference being, instead of killing Sinhala Civilians and policemen he kills Tamils now.

    Moreover, SL government is a signatory to the UN Convention on Terrorism, that necessitates the arrest of those involved in terrorism and money laundering. THis so called Karuna is guilty on two grounds, 1. terrorism and 2. money laundering. How is that neither the government nor the police watch his terrorist activities unhindered?

    We Sri Lankans promoting Buddishsm to the world are involved in the `Bribary Scandal` and that too from the Departments of Police, Army, Justice, Administrators in Secretariats etc etc. is a DISGRACE.By the advancement of material comforts and serving his personal SENSE gratification will never make him happy. We enjoy the results of our work or suffer the results. THIS IS `KARMA` This a clear case in the practice of the Damma or the impracticability of the religion.

    In the CEB there appear to be a severe WASTE OF MAN-HOURS. THIS IS THE MOST EXPENSIVE COMMODITY IN ANY PRODUCTION LINE. Please deciplene the men in your charge and be honest and save the Nation. Time LOst cannot be redeemed.

    Mr. Saleemtariq

    The Income Tax Department should investigate this confiscate the money if Karuna cannot prove that he got it legally. Also what about Tax for this big sum. Again when he is hiding how can he make use of the money. The Goverment should enlighten the public. I hoe you agree to this.

    As far as Sri Lanka,India,Pakistan and other under-developped countries are concerned the bribery cases are very usual and it is every where.

    As for Sri Lanka, bribery cases found from an ordinary men to the Ministers of this country. In Sri lanka, you can buy even the judges or courts for any cirminal or civil case and every thing depend on how much you can afford.

    What next?

    Good to hear that the commission is aware of the complainants but what are they doing? Are they been influence by the politicians?

    Can we have a list all the bribery convictions for the last ten years. I am sure the complaints may be massive but the convictions may be nil or very little

    Yet we know that there are lot of bribery in Sri Lanka. Presenting government-land to the out going Present is a type of bribe.

    What are they doing about it?

    We call it bribery the west calls it soft money, the best thing to do is change the name to soft money. As there are to culprits in this exchange the giver and the taker, it`s like Adam and Eve.
