Rs.18 Million Spent On Food Alone At Three Rajapaksa Functions

Funds worth Rs. 18,592,750 had been spent as food expenses alone at just three functions hosted by the Rajapaksas in 2010.

This was revealed through a random check by the Sri Lankan Airline Board of Inquiry team into the receipts and bills of Sri Lankan Catering on the expenses incurred by the institution for functions held at the President’s House.

Mahinda NugegodaThe BOI inquiry into the financial misappropriations of the national carrier had found that the expenses had later been settled by the Presidential secretariat.

The BOI inquiry team has also probed into a series of donations made by the SLC in the forms of cash, material and cooked food worth Rs. 2,537,941 between 2010 -2014 for various government functions.

Listed below are the conspicuous expenses:

  • 600 kg of rice worth Rs. 25,200 given to the President’s House on 4/5/2010
  • Cash worth Rs.1,810, 654 given for the IIFA function on 29/6/2010
  • Meal packs for children worth Rs. 702,087.00 given to the Chairman on 31/10/2012
  • May Day lunch worth Rs. 330,000 given to Civil Aviation Minister Priyankara Jayaratne  27/05/2014

The BOI inquiry report notes that the practice of the SLC resources being diverted to political activities is clearly established through the financial transactions they probed into and most of them had been approved by the CEO, causing a loss of the SLC.

While emphasizing the fact that there is no corporate culture for the management to ensure governance against external political interference, the Weliamuna report has recommended for steps to be taken to recover the losses caused or at least partially, from those who approved all the illegal payments.

        Snowden Edward Asange,
        Your: “are u the guy who is seen kissing the photo of MR? dont u wish its his butt instead?”

        I love that line…..

        Do we really need to go through the round of mental torture of having the bum-head Mahinda Rajapakse all over again???? NO!

        Who are the bastards who wants him back again???? The same old ZIONIST trained Sinhala Only Zionsts like Dinesh Gunawardene, JHU/Champika, JHU/Omalpe skin head, Dayan Jayatilake (Zionist backed fake Buddhist like the previous ones like Anagarika the racist), Wimal Bum-head-wangsa, Cow-Dung brained Nalin de Silva etc.

        These guys totally approve all the evils of Mahinda, the thefts, the murders, filth, etc…etc…

        What is the solution????

        Mahinda is their brand. If they don’t have that brand they will be in chaos. So,…destroy the brand…. BUMP-OFF MAHINDA NOW!!!!!

        He is not a threat to any future govt. But, he is threat to the peace of this land. He is already let his DOGS out to defecate everywhere…the BBS/Sinhala Ravaya etc.

        Take this words to our heart…with Mahinda let living around. He will head hunted again by the ZIONISTS to start up a conflict with some community again.

        Then, the US/UK/Norway/France….can sell weapons again. They will sell to both parties of the conflict and push it to another 30+++++ years.

        Who is going to lose. Sinhalese by and large. Because, Champika, Mahinda or Gota will not going to wear the boots and go to the warfront. Its the poor Sinhala peasant’s kids who will be given as BLOOD-Sacrifice for the SATAN they worship.

        Satan needs Blood. Wirathu did it. US is still doing it. In the history of mankind ZIONIST JEWS committed many mass murders and they created the Mass Destructive weapons like Nuclear weapons. All the NAZI scientists were JEWS and they were transferred to the US and they develop the technology of killing milions of human beings in a single blow.

        They proliferate WAR. They earn by WARS. Its normal business for them. They have the evil BANKING system to enslave people world-wide. Anyone, going against it will be destroyed whether they are men or women and even the babies and children. THEY DON’T HAVE ANY IOTA OF MERCY IN THEIR BLACKENED HEARTS.

        The Mahinda’s DOG Gnanasara spoke sometime ago publicly saying that warning the Muslims in Maligawatte saying if the
        “MAligawatte is GAZA then WE (BBS) are the ISRAEL”….

        What it he saying by that???? There is no one who said Maligawatte is GAZA… There was no need to.

        So, What is the connection between Maligawatte and GAZA in common – MUSLIMS.

        Gnanasara openly hinted that he is backed by ISRAELI MOSSAD and He is ready to JOIN the ZIONIST WAR on Islam.

        That’s why the Zionist war worldwide and the BBS WAR on ISLAM is almost same tactics and methods.

        They planned to attack Religiously, Culturally, Financially and Bodily Harm. Its pure TERROR Mahinda opnely waged.

        He even employed Former Air Vice Marshall Donald Perera to issue a public statement claiming the War against the Palestinians is JUSTIFIED. He said Palestinians are as TERRORISTS.

        This Mahinda did as he was known to be the (fake) friend of the Palestinians. No one saw the ISRAELI MOSSAD planning behind the scene of MAHINDA’s criminal acts.

        Mahinda and Gota will be used again. Because, they have Zionist Green Card membership that will make them automatic assassins of the ZIONIST NWO project.

        Zionist banks IMF/WORLD BANK helped him to plunder the country into more debts. They did this after very well knowing the ground situation of the financial doom of the country and its treasury.

        My conviction is Mahinda, Gota and their gangs should be bumped off very, very soon. Leaving them alive is leaving the rest of the people at the death rope.

        Do not forget to watch following videos: They will be helpful for you to understand the dangers the Zionists are committing right now at this moment to the world:

          I was at Fortress Resort Hotel, Galle in 2010. When I was chatting with the management they told me too that Ranil Wickramasinghe spends lot of time there occupying an expensive suite. It cost around USD 600 per night. Snowden is correct in saying that…

            Even if he would do so – but he would never abuse the people ‘s funds to pay his hotel charges. This is the truth. But the Rajapakshes while move on kissing the cheeks of the kids of the poor masses- in the same time they picked poor man’s few cts left for their survival. This is thr eground reality. Once I happened to watch it the way Rajapakshe immediately joined the farmers ploughing the paddy fields immediately after he returned home from US tour. But alone for the US entourages he took plan loads of all kith and kin as a prince of a poor afro countries would do – in the same time blocking the schduled filghts. Any other leaders including the current My3 are used to use normal flights when leaving the country for their official foregin trips. Rajapakshe thought and misunderstood that the national carrier was his own property. Gawky people through Raja Media unit made him a king – costed poor man a lot. It is PLAINLY shameless:

          Well said Desert Storm.

          It is time to investigate what Avant Garde and Rakna Lanka were upto.

          Dr.Rajitha says there could be a link between Avent Guard, Boko Haram and Somali Pirates and the all managed drug traffickers, death squads and hired mercenaries.

          I also guess KP’s master brains behind this episode. Now our Ambassador to Russia is been tracked by Interpol on selling illegal arms to Ukraine Guerrillas. How he made the deal is questionable.

          Constant wars and selling arms and giving loans to both parties of the conflict are the latest money maker of the world’s big Bankers and Sri Lanka should be aware of this.

          Gota’s BBS creation is a Racist and a terrorist organization, getting help from all over to destablise Sri Lanka.

          It’s time for both Pres. Maithreepala Sirisena, Gen Sarath Fonseka and PM Ranil and the parliament MPs to be extra vigilant.

        The 5.8 million who kissed Medamulana Mahinda Rajapakas ass have an average IQ of 65, while the average IQ of Sri Lankans is 79. Those 5.8 million cannot tell Mahinda Shit from a “Kos Ata”, a jack fruit seed.

        In the meantime, some women are jumping into the rivers with the children, some are selling their children, and other women are leaving their children and going to the Middle East as Maids to make ends meet.

      Difference is Ranil used his personal finances. Unlike these Rajapakses who used tax oayers money as if it was their own !

      There will be a day, they will pay with interest. Not only the children even the grand children will pay for the crime committed by these SOBs.

I am not supporting any parties but we have to fight against justice and fairness. For them their criminal head is above the law. This is the common feeling of the majority of stupid folks of the island. My only wish is these masses to sense it before long and corner not only Rajapakshes any one who would abuse the nation’s funds. MsMaralathoni from Rome Italy

      SLA corruption is an exact mirror image of how the whole country is being governed. By both SLFP & UNP. This is nothing new.

      Nobody named in the SLA report has even been criminally charged yet. It is way too slow. Once these cases reach dysfunctional & corrupt judiciary, they will drag on for 10 to 15 years.

      Ample time for these well-established crooks to play the system. All of them will go free at the end.

      Those who have mismanaged and stolen public wealth have already invested their ill-gotten means in other places. Even outside SL. They will be OK for generations to come.

      Think about Balapatabendi clan accused of corruption during CBK regime. His offspring are all well settled in Australia. With their real estate investments & banking in tax paradises around the world.

      We don’t even talk about them anymore. It is fully possible to live a respectable life built on stolen wealth from Sri Lanka.

      Cheers!

      Actually the way they have looted billions- should be made very clear to the nation by all means – that is really important before people being caught by Pro-MR politicians. I have the feeling the gravity of the reveal is much less thanit should be…

    At least, the money was pent locally, and some people benefited from it, for spending peoples money, and Mahinda Rajapaksa benefited from it.

    Can we really go after big Frauds, where the money was kept by the crooks and Robbers.

    It is a crime against the citizens of Sri Lanka to divert the resources
    of a state enterprise already loosing hundreds of millions yearly, for provision of expensive food for political lackeys at functions held solely to promote any individual, even the head of state.

    This does not happen in any other country, especially one in which a good percentage of citizens live below the poverty line.

    Rs 18,592,750 spent during three functions alone only during 2010 means that hundreds of millions have been spent to support the grandiose life style of Mahinda Rajapakse, family members and the hundreds of fawning parasites who thrived on this kind of illegal largesse.
    These are most probably the “supporters” who now clamour
    to bring him back purportedly as prime minister, to continue the feasts.

        Snowden, you’re absolutely right on! The problem is that no one seems to be taking the bull by the horns and reopening the cases (for instance) from around the time of the ‘Helping Hambantota’ fraud. The evidence was already established by the early Sunday Leader exposures by Lasantha W and the culprits identified. So why is this one lying dormant? And the innumerable scams that followed for which evidence is available …???

        Any guesses??

    Sinhala Mahajan elected a government through Democratic process. “Pillaiyar pidikka kuranaku vanthathau”. They wanted Lord Ganapathy but their craft work came out as monkey. Now the Sinhala Intellectuals has formed un-elected government. That is, this time they really making monkey with the full intention. But the media and IC’s are predicting the outcome will be Lord Ganapathy” That is really a comedy Thamai. I thought it is the fate of the Tamils all these time, but now it looks like, may be it the is the fate of the Sinhala Mahajan, Who Knows!

    Without 50:50 Sinhala land cannot survive. “Ellu EEan Kaauthu. Ennaiyakapaukuthu”. (Sesame seed are dried on the sun to squeeze out oil. What the rat dropping in that?) After giving out all their property to Royal family, the Sinhala Mahajan may want to go Pari Nirvana. What the Tamils are doing in that without going on their way?

    This is your last chance ranil to show you are a strong leader and not just a decent man only like dudley.God gave you this opportunity to redeem yourself and show you are having a backbone.Do you want to be rejected again at the parliamentary elections?If you think you will be contesting against nimal siripala for the PM’s post think again.

    You rob some intuition and provide food and Tamasha and show your popularity. This is the way MR & Co ruled and that is why guys like Wimal, Udaya and others hang behind him. President MS, P.M.Ranil W would not stoop to this levels.

What about millions of dollars stack away in foreign assets by Rajapakse’s and his goons. Rs 18m is pea nuts compared to that. The investigating team should release some of these foreign assets held by these people, unless they too are involved or are been bribed by these goons.

    Even white house in USA cannot beat this record.

    This is how this show off “Game Baiya” duped and bribed the public including Buddhist monks while giving them endless Land, luxury SUVs, duty free car permits, foreign trips and fake contracts.This is the reason why all his henchmen want him to come to power again.

    This is why this crazy ass ho.e is planning to come back to politics again after getting the taste of super luxury living at the expense of Tax payer money while screwing our country and it’s economy.

    Also the other 225 Parliament members are hiding all these from public while them themselves doing the same. This is called Parliament club corporate conspiracy run by a clan of thieves.

    Thank you CT for bringing these to the public which could be just the tip of the Ice burg.

    Stop going after pittance, expenditure on eating and drinking is normal and comes at a cost. Go after bigger fish like sharks and whales, that is where the
    “Appuhamy” is fleeced and skinned by those in power and the high and mighty as well as by those near and dear to them. If the investigators have strong evidence of bribery and corruption against the state then that is a crime against the state and the people and no mercy must be shown to the criminals.
    Yahapalanaya, stop talking and start acting or lose your credentials to the

    What I see is that Sri Lankans don’t care about corruption so long as they get at least one free lunch in their life-time! It may have something to do with the average IQ. But then again, India is not very high as well as several other nations. But yes, we do never think carefully before taking action. Again, that is our lack of patience in every situation. We went though a long and painful war but no lesson learnt. Now we have no patience (it appears) to see what this new government will do.

      MR is a corrupt politician, he is a thief, he is that, he is this, and whatever it is I love MR and add myself to the 5.8 mln people who voted for him. There is something special about him so much so that 5.8 mln. people plus me like his style of screwing. It hurts but then there is no pleasure without pain.
      MR may have burdened the people and the nation due to excessive spending and also pocketing on the side but governments of the past can take no credit for what MR has done to the country. Thanks to him we are able to travel and reach our destinations comfortably and quickly but at a cost. and speaking of costs,
      nothing much can be done on that as the world market prices are skyrocketing and controlled by the commercial mafia. MR had a vision and the costs are high and would go even higher in the future. MR cannot control the costs. His (M biggest weakness was to overlook racial discrimination, particularly against the Muslims, He had crooks and thugs as his henchmen. Perhaps, if and when he gets another opportunity, he could be wiser. Good Luck MR.
