Gift from CB bond scam to minister’s wife! Featured

A businessman with links to the Central Bank bond issue fiasco has gifted a super luxury Land Rover to the wife of a government minister on her birthday recently, say political sources.

Meanwhile, minister Rajitha Senaratne alleges that those involved in the bond scam have bought distillery companies, imported ethanol and are distilling arrack illegally.

At a development committee meeting at Beruwala divisional secretariat yesterday (26), Senaratne said he had raised the matter at the cabinet meeting.

He added that he has requested the president to establish a special police unit to aid his no-alcohol campaign.
