Govt. politico under probe for fraud

    The whole of SL knows that almost all so called politiciens do politics for their own gain only.

    This has been the story since independence. Has a single politician gone to prison during this period?

    The day a single politician goes to jail ( not merchants ward!) will be a truly historic event we all Sri lankans could celebrate !

    A politician going to jail is like Velu declaring Peelam!

    Sorry guys no can do!Take a look at Mervin`s son`s case they could even keep the in a remand prison.

    Is this politician an MP or MPC or a Pradeshiya Sabha member? In any case, with the amount involved being just one million rupees, the guy must be a sprat. Even if he is found guilty and punished, which seems quite unlikely, this would mean nothing. What would make a difference is to catch the Sharks who siphoned off billions in COPE, VAT and Arms deals like the MIG deals.

    Not a chance of that happening even under a different dispensation. The Sun can rise from the West but Bribery and Corruption will NEVER be eradicated from Sri Lanka. Very sad but true.
