COLOMBO (News 1st) – The Presidential Commission probing fraud and corruption at state institutions inspected several oil bowsers purchased by a company affiliated with the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation, today (September 03).

The investigation was launched following a complaint lodged by the employee’s trade union of the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation, citing the purchased oil bowers did not meet the required standards.

Members of the commission inquired into the differences between the facilities of an average oil bowser, and two bowsers purchased at exorbitant prices.

The inquiry took place under the direct supervision of Chairman of the commission, retired supreme court judge Upali Abeyrathne.

It was later revealed, the facilities of the oil bowsers purchased at a higher cost, were only of minimum standards.

The complaint is due to be heard on September 16th.
