Colombo (News 1st); The Government is linked to large-scale fraud and corruption, alleged Venerable Madille Pannaloka Thero, the General Secretary of the Sinha-le Movement.

The tax benefit from importing sugar was given to please the associates of the government and it cost the tax-payer Rs, 15 Billion, alleged the Thero.

The Venerable Thero went on to note the fraud and corruption committed by those in government in the past two months alone is greater than the infamous Central Bank Treasury Bond Scam.

Venerable Madille Pannaloka Thero said when looking at the facts of the President’s address to the nation on Independence Day, it is evident he had failed.

The Venerable Thero also slammed the general public for assisting in corruption in the public sector, for supporting it indirectly, which has proven to be the greatest obstacle in ending corruption.

Speaking further, the Venerable Thero said there are two groups of associates the government pleases and these two groups are committing fraud and corruption at the expense of the taxpayer.
