20 MPs Caught Selling Vehicle Permits: Dilrukshi’s Corruption Reported To The President

The Director General of the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption (CIABOC), Dilrukshi Wickramasinghe‘s corruption has been reported to the President by public interest litigation activist and lawyer Nagananda Kodituwakku.

This complaint is based on the alleged failure on the part of the DG to initiate a credible and independent inquiry.

The activist’s complaint to the President is backed by credible evidence about the patent abuse of this tax-free car permit scheme by the MPs.

The complaint made to President Sirisena is also backed by a schedule of Toyota Land Cruiser jeeps imported without payment of levy and the schedule of vehicles transferred to third parties on the same day the said vehicles were registered in the name of the permit holder MPs.

According to the RMV certificate of transfer of the permit to new ownership, the names of the MPs who have abused the tax-free car permits to defraud government revenue of Rs 33,459,250 for each Toyota Land Cruiser, for which only RS 1,750.00 paid to customs as data entry fee for each vehicle, are as follows:

Maharoof Imran

Palitha Kumara Thevarapperuma

Kanchana Voditha Wijesekara
Anura Sujeewa Senasinghe

Akalanka Buddika Uditha Deduwa Pathirana
Sivapragasam Sivamohan
Chamal Jayantha Rajapaksa
Sarath Chandrasiri Muthukumarana
Jayakody Arachchilage Sisira Kumara Jayakody
Sivaghanam Shrithara

Activist Kodituwakku states that on behalf of the people he expected that the Director General of CIABOC would initiate a credible investigation into his complaint, in the same manner in which she had recently apprehended three Customs Officers who were involved in accepting a 125 million-rupee bribe, where the DG CIABOC had used treasury funds to make the detection. The activist says that if a similar strategy had been adopted to buy MP car permits freely available in the car market through some decoys employed for the purpose or to buy these vehicles freely displayed for sale in the motor car show rooms, the CIABOC could have easily nabbed at least a few corrupt MPs red handed. This would have put a stop to this abuse and prevented colossal losses of government revenue running into several billions being robbed by the corrupt MPs.

The activist states that the content of the recent media interview given by the Director General CIABOC on the complaint he had made against the DG to the Chairman of the Commission, reveals that she had perused the complaint furnished to her on the 26th of August 2016, but failed to take corrective measures promptly and decisively to arrest this fraud of public funds running into an unimaginable magnitude.

In the complaint made to the President the activist further states that he made a similar complaint about the abuse of tax-free permits by MPs and Ministers to CIABOC on the 11th of December 2014, and the then Director General refused to initiate an investigation into it citing the following reasons.

‘…The Conditions in the tax-free permits were decided as policy of the government. Therefore any loss caused to the government due to the implementation of such government policy will not fall within the scope of Section 70 of the Bribery Act. Accordingly, please note that the Commission will not take further action on your complaint.”

The activist claims that the DG’s communiqué addressed to him dated 04th March 2015, is absolutely unacceptable as no democratically elected government can abuse the trust placed in it by the people by resorting to rob the nations wealth whilst completely undermining the trust placed in it by the people. Therefore, the Corruption Commission, which is an arm of the Executive, cannot turn a blind eye to this serious fraud being committed by the members of the executive and the legislature to embezzle public funds running into several billions of rupees.

    If they sold their vehicles then they had no functional requirement for them. Then why did RW and co, insisted a few months ago that these people could not fucntion as MPs or ministers without a suitable vehicle to transport them, some siad that they needed a comfortable vehicle as they spend almost all their working day and night in these vehicles. So, at the end this is the outcome. Ranil and everyone else that occupy those seats in the House of Parliament are liars, and probably have foul smelling mouths.

      Good points. Public transport in Sri Lanka is a mess and the people have to travel like cattle, why should the corrupt politicians who have beggared the country travel in super luxury SUVs?.

      All MPs who need cars (not those who sold their permits) should be given a permit for ONLY 2 million LKR, to buy a new small and solid car like a Suzuki Alto which can go anywhere.

      This is all that Sri Lanka which has been beggared by corrupt and criminal politicians can afford. Not Luxury Suvs payed for with VAT taxes squeezed out of poor people by the leaders of the Miracle of Modayas.

        Quite right SM!

        MPs who need cars should only be given a permit for 2 million LKR, to buy a new small and solid car like a Suzuki Alto. This is all that Sri Lanka which is in a massive debt trap to China and IMF can afford for its corrupt politicians who have looted the people.

        Those who sold their permits because they do not need any cars, should be forced to resign for corruption and stealing.

      The corruption soap opera continues with hundreds of cases dangling despite mountains of evidence – blocked by the very politicians who have beggared the country and put Sri Lankans into a massive debt trap with China and IMF.

      The looted funds should be traced, seized and used to pay off the National Debt.

      1. Single biggest mistake of Ranil-Sira Jarapalanaya govt. was to appoint Wijedasa Jarapassa the Avant guard man, Minister of Injustice, and Buddha Sasana, to boot!
      Wijedasa Jarapassa and the Colombo Magistrate are Jarapass men and should be impeached. Wijedasa Jarapassa is Goon Gota’s man and is using the UnBuddhist monks including Balu Senava, and Ministry of Buddha Sasana to sabotage real reform and DIVIDE and DISTRACT the public, and defend Gota the white van murderer and the Jarapassa family of looters.

      2. Second biggest mistake of Sira Ranil Jarapalanaya govt. was making the corrupt clown Arjuna Mahendran head of Central Bank so he could look it and people of Lanka, and then claim to follow the corrupt crook Ajith Nivard Cabraal. What is FCID doing with these jokers for so long – not a single conviction with massive evidence against Basil, Gota, Namal , Sajin Vas, etc/ FCID is proving to be pretty inefficient and useless.

      Having said that we can’t remain silent.

      Relevant tax should be reimposed with extra levy on these vehicles. Both buyers and sellers should be prosecuted for unlawful and unethical dealings and behavior.

      Those MPs should face vote of no confidence in the house.

    I still cannot understand the case that Mr. Naganada is pursuing. My opinion is: if the Government has made a decision to allow the Parliamentarians to be given a “Tax Free” vehicle permit to import a vehicle of which the maximum value is fixed to a determined CIF value, how could that be contested in a court of law? The next step is: if with that decision, the Government has not “prohibited” the “Sale” or “Transfer” of the permit, what can the Bribery Commission do? May be the Income Tax is the most appropriate authority to check on the Income Declarations filed by these MPs who have sold the permits and also of those who purchased such permits at prices not within their income levels. So are we baking at the wrong tree? Having said that, I thank Mr. Nagananda for bring up this issue to public attention. For the first time he had made use of that “Right to Information” legislation in getting all the details officially and that is step in the right direction. He presented the names of the MPs, the type of vehicles, the value; the tax quantum lost to the Government; to whom the vehicles were sold and on what date the registration was done and for how much the vehicles were sold. Those details he presented were very comprehensive and now it is up to the Tax Dept. to keep an eye on the matter of “gains” both the seller and the buyer made and how the buyer had all that money to buy at that price. Also I noticed some of those vehicles are transferred to Commercial Establishments and that was purposely done to hood wink the Tax Man. But leaving all that to be handled by the relevant Govt. Agencies, the PEOPLE must make a NOTE and KEEP IN MIND, very important KEEP IN MIND of all those who made use of this “Permit Business” and kick the bastards out at the first opportunity they get a chance to vote. I say this because, this STUPID decision was made by their own “Representatives” and they are the very same blood suckers that we are now taking to task. Hopefully the PEOPLE would set the “BENCH MARKS” at the next election, no matter what that election is.

      Douglas, you have a point. The blame should lie, first and foremost’, squarely with the Cabinet for having approved this scheme against so much criticism and also when the country is in dire straights- so let’s change the phrase ” Ali Baba and the 40 thieves” to suit our country to read as “Ali Baba alias RW and the 25 ( have I got the number of Cabinet Ministers right as there are so many ?) Cabinet thieves”.

      And for the lesser culprits let us rephrase it to read ” Ali Baba and the 224 thieves ” as none of our parliamentarians, as far as I am aware, has refused these permits issued at the expense of sweat and blood of the very same people who voted them to Parliament.

      I see names such as Sujeewa Serasinghe, Palitha Thewarapperuma and Chamal Rajapakse in this list of 20. Don’t they have a sense of shame when they come out and face the people of this country.

        No, no, no, blame should lie with the gullible Sri Lankan voters. They have failed to recognize all charlatans and their actions in the parliament. Alibaba and thieves graduated from the SWRD School of Corruption. “Emperor with no clothes on” and his court jesters graduated from the JRJ School of Corruption. So don’t expect any changes you may cry until the cows come home.

      I tend to think that there is no Case to go by. Govt. Policies can be a plus
      to some and minus to some. Here, the hidden agenda was to reimburse their MPs
      the cost of electioneering. The Tax Dept. has a full scale job with the
      transacted amounts and this can put in place with a with a Tax Clearance
      certificate that must be made a compulsory paper for R.M.V Registration. For
      that matter, all transactions over Rs. One Million should carry a Tax Clearance
      certificate each to make it a legally accepted transaction any where in Sri
      Lanka, in the future.
      (In fact, such a suggestion has gone to the Tax Dept. from the P.M.s Office.

      This has been a tradition. And why cant they in the same time ask such permits can not be sold to anyone.

      I have the feeling if a state want to put restrictions and laws, they can always do them. THat is how it works in S pore, Germany, France, uk or anywhere proper systems and laws have taken control of the behaviours of people.

      Our people talk big, but dont know how to walk the talk. Not even have been able to controll over the increasing numbers of beggars and disguished beggers found in colombo vicinity. The reason has been no proper low provision to punish them adequately. So, what have the politicians been doing intsead ? They have to bring new laws to handle the issues if the laws arenot avialable.
      Almost every govt does the same.
      This nation is stagnated. Basta.

    I and several others with experience in the Public Sector in the old days have been constantly calling for the total removel of “duty free vehicle permits” for ALL classes of public “servants”, meaning doctors, engineers, MPs, Ministers etc etc. There is NO justification. In those days, we had the use of vehicles belonging to the respective corporation or department and was allowed the LIMITED use of these vehicles for private running. This is shameful and ridiculous.

    Oh dear among the violators is Wasantha Senanayake, great grand son of the so called Father of the Nation( wonder who the Mother was !!!) and the most loquacious Sujeeva Senasinghe who sees a fraudster behind virtually every lamp post.When it comes to day light robbery of the people’s wealth all these fellows seem to be robbing in unison.Just imagine the IQ of the voter who votes for these fellows at each election.

    Surely these politicians must be laughing all the way to the Bank through the mouth and their posterior as well.At the same time the likes of the great W. Dahanayake and U.B Wanninayake,Dudley Senanayake must be rolling in their graves unable to fathom as to what has happened in our once fair and honest Sri Lanka .

    If doctors ask proper schools for their children. that is too much. Parents should notbe worried about their children.

    Why Politicians are treated preferntially except LEaders want to stay trouble free in power.

    Politicians are worse than highway robbers. Ranil wickramsinghe is the Alibaba. As he wants to stay in power, he gives everything they ask, increase salries, beneifts and perks. I hopevoters note these things.

She was transferred to Puttalam and I was 9 years old and was boarded. My ssters were smaller but sent to the Convent School in Puttalam and later, boarded at Ladies’ College.

    Is the last name Sivagnanam Sritharan? No MP called Sivaghanam Shrithara, as far as I know.

    I think I also would have accepted the permit and sold it if cabinet had approved it. The MPs cannot be faulted. I do not need such an expensive car. So why not take it and sell it?

    I think the Bribery Commissioner cannot charge the MPs with corruption if the cabinet approved it.

    If there is a crime, it is in the Cabinet giving public money to buy over MPs; especially when the know that the MPs will sell the permits. But that inention cannot be proven.

    MPs who are sent by Dalits in the villages , selling their car permits is understandable, although it is disgusting..

    But the Cream of the Crop of the UNP and the pin up boy of the Colombo Elite selling his permit to a Muslim for LKR 37 Million..is outright pathetic.

    Because the Doctor Bro of young Senasinghe boasted after threatening a patron at a a posh restaurant that He is a Good Sinhala lass and won’t take Shit from Muslims’ .

    And it is on Tape..

    May be the Money from Muslims is exempt from Senasinghes Shit List…

    This is more evidence, as if we needed it, that politicians of so Ranil / Arjuna Mahendran ticket, Gamarala Sirisena national govt., as well as, Mahinda Jarapassa cronies are collaborators in corruption, crime, and looting Sri Lanka, and piling on the debt to the poor people in the form of VAT.

    Sri Lanka is in a DEBT TRAP to foreign lenders – between the Chinese and the IMF – because of the stinking corruption of the politicians and their SUV lifestyles – so called leaders of the Miracle of Modayas!

    Meanwhile, today Poverty and inequality rates are galloping up, and Mahinda Jarapassa and cronies will soon be back in the saddle as Ranil has been totally discredited by the Arjuna Mahendran scandal at the Central Bank. JO of corrupt crooks and MR cronies is right on one thing: the need to seize Mahendran’s assets and seal Perpetual treasuries and uses the funds from their off sohore bank accounts in SINGAPORE to pay off some of the massive national debt of Sri Lanka. IMF which is supposed to be in charge of Global governance should track the off shore bank accounts and ensure the funds looted from Sri Lanka are returned to pay off debt rather than loading VAT taxes onto poor people. Ranil and Sira are constantly globe trotting rather than addressing issues and cleaning up the corrupt Justice System that is headed by Wijedasa jarapassa who is in the pocket of the Avant Guard crooks and Gota Jarapassa. Sri lanka is stuck with a bloated military that aids and abets political corruption while the people pay for the tax free lifestyle and super luxury SUVs that are blocking the roads of the corrupt politicians! Sinhala Lanka is cursed by its so-called leaders (UNP and SLFP), who are corrupt and criminal – Sira, Ranil, Mahinda Jarapassa and all their cronies and family members. Just like Tamils cursed by their leaders – Prabakaran to Thondaman and Ponnambalam Jr.

    The Director General of the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption (CIABOC), Dilrukshi Wickramasinghe should be dismissed from her post and public interest litigation activist and lawyer Nagananda Kodituwakku must be appointed to that post.

    That would be the most logical and sensible thing to do, as the former wants to protect rogues and the latter wants to bring them to justice.

    Issuance of tax free permits to MPs (by Yahapalana Administration) itself is a financial crime committed with intend to defraud the government revenue

    Finance Minister, Ravi Karunanayake, exercising the powers vested in him under Section 3C of the Excise Special Provisions Act NO 13 of 1989 issued the Gazette No 1965/2 of 02nd MAY 2016, listing motor vehicle imported by MPs as an EXCISABLE ARTICLE, exempting them from the payment of excise duty.

    The provisions of said Section 3C says, that such exemptions are granted HAVING REGARD TO THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT of the country and if any such item is sold or disposed of contrary to desired objective and conditions, such items SHALL be liable to the same excise duty as payable under this Act on like Articles, which are subject to excise duty and the IMPORTER of such article shall PRIOR TO SUCH SALE or DISPOSALS obtain the permission from the Director General and PAY THE EXCISE DUTY”

    However, all permits issued to the MPs have been issued by the Secretary to the Parliamentary Reforms in March 2016, that is well before the vehicles were gazetted as an Excisable Article, exempting from payment of levies at the time importation.

    Therefore, any person with judicial mind would understand that the issuance of these permits itself has been motivated by fraudulent purpose which is a serious crime against the people, which is committed with intend to defraud the government revenue.

    This patently violates the provisions of the Fiscal Policy and Management Act, brought in to ensure that ‘the financial strategy of the Government shall be based on principles of responsible Fiscal Management, to facilitate public scrutiny of fiscal policy and performance. This law specifically provides Objectives underlying responsible Fiscal Management, ensuring that the policy decisions of the Government have regard to the financial impact of such decision on future generations.

    Therefore, Wickramasinghe Yahapalana should fact full force of the law for gross abuse of people’s sovereign rights to embezzle public funds for unjust enrichment.

    According to the Forbes Report Sri Lanka is supposed to be insolvent or as we commonly call it a Bankrupt country.In other words it does not have the income to meet it’s debt commitments and it is obvious the PM and President are roaming around the globe virtually begging for money by offering to sell or lease various public assets. This no doubt is the legacy the great national hero Rajapakse left for us,an empty begging bowl.In this situation for members of parliament to abuse public money is an unpardonable crime.It is for crimes like these that people should go to Seenigama and dash coconuts to curse these rogues who having gone to the parliament obviously to enjoy life rather than serve the people are stealing their money that could have been used to feed children or pay for health care in a poor remote hospital.I am not sure how these scum go home and buy food for their children without feeling guilty.Prostitutes and pimps have better moral standards than these b..tards.

    What Douglas says is true. When approving the “Duty Free Import Permits” to MPs, if the Cabinet had not imposed a condition that these imported vehicles cannot be sold for a specific period or if they are to be sold full duty has to be paid, then what can the CIABOC do. Years ago there was such a condition. However, Mahinda Rajapaksa government removed that condition, allowing such vehicles to be sold without any penalty. Being a lawyer Nagananda should have known that. I agree, morally it is wrong, but what can one do when it is not legally wrong. As Nagananda says what the Bribery Commission has responded to him in December 2014, it is quite clear i.e.

    “The Conditions in the tax-free permits were decided as policy of the government. Therefore any loss caused to the government due to the implementation of such government policy will not fall within the scope of Section 70 of the Bribery Act. Accordingly, please note that the Commission will not take further action on your complaint.”

    Sure, it is not under the scope of CIABOC. So why did he not go to court then if he thought it was a wrong decision. Then why did he write to CIABOC again, instead Nagananda should have written to the Income Tax Dept to tax the MPs who have sold such vehicles and earned money (and check the assets of those who bought), to pay tax on their earnings. It is up to the IT to take action. Just lambasting the present DG is of no use.

    Now that he has given the names of only 18 MPs. But the number has to be much higher. How about those who have sold their ‘Permits” and those who have sold the vehicles but not registered under the new owners (on open papers. I fully agree with K. Soysa that that these vehicle permit system should be completely stopped.

    I will be surprised if the President takes any action on Nagananda’s complain. This is good only for publicity.

    This is what happens when those who traveled by bus are bestowed with luxury travel from the get go. This should be a gradual process, stating from a push bicycle (duty free of course.) . Each year they should be allowed to up grade based on performance, next to a 100CC motorcycle, then a 250, then to a Honda civic,and the final year before election, if everything seems OK (audited ), may be, just may be a Toyota Prius.

    Why these some stupid persons cant understand that is said by Mr Nagananda.He has shown the legal position of selling items imported under this scheme not paying Excise duties Recoverable under the act.what ever the conditions at the permits ,still the act is applicable ,if not they have to amend the bill.this is a very good applicable law if it is in Britten.Under the so called Yahapalana I don’t think So, since the RW is also ALIHORA wearing tie and court.

    Why are some people so confused about this whole vehicle permit fraud and wondering whether Mr. Nagananda is confused or what??! Why don’t you check – the provisions in Section 3C of the Excise Special Provisions Act NO 13 of 1989 – does it not say that such exemptions from the payment of excise duty are granted HAVING REGARD TO THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT of the country? And that if any such item is sold or disposed contrary to this desired objective and conditions, such items SHALL be liable to the same excise duty payable under this Act on like Articles, which are subject to excise duty and the IMPORTER of such articles shall PRIOR TO SUCH SALE or DISPOSALS obtain the permission from the Director General and PAY THE EXCISE DUTY”?? Which part of this is unclear..??? If any dealing occurs without adherence to the law, that is GROSS abuse of public funds for unjust enrichment.
