According to the FCID, by misusing the vehicle, the Government has suffered a financial loss of Rs. 10.5 million.

The FCID pointed out that Weerawansa who was not even a Parliamentarian, did not have the privilege to use a government vehicle. Weerawansa had used this vehicle released from the Presidential Secretariat from 2009 to 2015.

Weerawansa who was also the private secretary to his brother, Wimal Weerawansa, the Minister of Housing and Construction during the previous government is also alleged to have obtained a fuel allowance worth Rs. 1.6 million which he has claimed to have used for his private vehicle.

    May be there are lot more to get from him even if Drama Queen his brother most known rabble roucer WImal Weerawanse has been upto his mission.

    I believe, if we really focus on the bits, it will not be difficult to get every tiny things related to those money grabs.

    While living in Germany, I have the feeling tracing has been much easier, if we get to know the families with the alleged men…. one is linked with the other, we need more of experienced men to collect all the relevant information. That can then lead to catch all these men and even sharks.

    Yestreday having read an article on Basil S vILLA in Gampaha district, raised me the question, as to why the bugger is let to be scot free yet ? If all have been revealed about the man… in Germany, that would not have been the case, such men have no escape at all.

    We therefore need more laws and powerful active men that work only with laws.. Rigorous laws can tackle everything

    Please Mr Fonseka, do your best to get the law and order department to learn all these men a lession and shape up the nation. That is your area where you have been honoured.. God bless

    It appears the Govt & FCID are going round in circles, the biggest culprit
    Buruwansas is still scot free. Passport scandal is completely gone under, distribution of houses to relations are not heard of anymore. God knows the law prevailing in S/L. all the big fraudsters are still free.

    What is this “Legal System” of Remanding and Granting Bail? In one case, in which Sajin Vas Gunawardane who defrauded and caused the Government a loss of 800 million is granted bail; while this man, Weerawanse is not granted bail but re-remanded for causing a loss of 15 million. In a similar case in which ex Minister Wimal Weerawansa’s party Secretary who is also charged with misuse of vehicles, remanded and give bail. Where is the main CULPRIT who is responsible and answerable for this misuse of vehicles? He only makes “pilgrimages” to FCID and the Commission. What is actually going on? Are these the “Court Drama” re enactments of the stories we read during our young days, where there was a “King” and “Court Jester” who entertained the King,his Court and the Public?
