National Organiser of the Sri Lanka Freedom party (SLFP) MP Susil Premajayantha has expressed doubts with regard to the process being adopted to apprehend individuals connected to fraud and corruption.
Speaking at an event organised by the SLFP women’s front the parliamentarian stated that the SLFP is not against action being taken against corrupt individuals but instead of going after rouges outside the Government the current administration should first focus on nabbing perpetrators that are within their ranks.
MP Premajayantha specifically singled out the Governor of the Central Bank as one such perpetrator within the ranks of the current administration.
He went on to note that this is the first time in history a gazette notification was issued at the cabinet subcommittee stage which is capable of taking a decision on a criminal charges. The Parliamentarian noted that it is Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe who is operating these acts. However Susil Premajayantha also noted that the current administration needs to understand that when the people come such Gazette notifications will be ripped to shreds.
