The JVP filed a complaint with the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption citing that money had been embezzled in projects related to the 2013 Deyta Kirula Exhibition held in Ampara on Wednesday, May 06.

Representatives of the JVP pointed out in the complaint that Rs.130 million had been obtained for several projects and deposited in a private account.

Former parliamentarian Wasantha Piyatisssa stated that Former District Secretary of Ampara Neil De Alwis and Former Secretary of Defence Gotabhaya Rajapaksa have been named respondents in the complaint. He made the following allegations:

This complaint was filed relating to the financial fraud amounting to Rs.130 million  committed with the intervention of Neil De Alwis and Gotabaya Rajapaksa. The district secretary had directed three cheques to the account of the former secretary of defence. The money had been exchanged. Large scale financial fraud had taken place.

JVP Western Provincial Councilor Attorney-at-Law Sunil Watagala stated that another respondent has been named in the petition which is the Chairman of Ampara Urban Council. He said that the Chairman had taken over 40 perches of land in the heart of Ampara which was to be used for public benefit.
