Reply to convicted fraudster PBJ against his utterance on the economy

The whole Nation is aware that in the recent past PBJ admitted guilt and paid a fine of Rs 500,000.00 imposed by the Supreme Court for his connivance in fraudulent transactions that cost government dearly. Further to an order by the Supreme Court, by way of an affidavit PBJ gave a firm undertaking not to accept any public office.

(November 11, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) Today’s Daily news reported that according to the Secretary to the Treasury PBJ the demands made by the opposition to increase the pay of the public servants and the pensioners are unreasonable and the country cannot afford their demands. PBJ’s stand on the issues raised by the opposition about the sickening quality of life of the public servants, demands scrutiny of his own conduct and stand taken by him in relation to other major issues where the taxpayers’ money was wasted like peanuts by the government.

o Government recently allowed substantial salary increase to the politicians and also double the foreign exchange allowance [from 25,000 to 55,000 dollars] granted to them to import super luxury cars for their use at the expense of taxpayers

o Government also allowed parliamentary complex extension project at the cost of some billions of rupees, again utter waste of taxpayers’ money.

o The recent trip to the UN by the President accompanied by over hundred people cost the government over billions of taxpayers’ money.

o In case where public funds over 619 million rupees were misappropriated by the Colombo Dockyard Company, PBJ directed the Customs Chief not to enforce the penal sanctions provided by law against the Dockyard Ltd. His improper action that opened floodgates to government revenue fraudsters is now challenged before the Supreme Court [SC/536/2010] where PBJ is cited as the main Respondent in the case.

These are only a few cases where the conduct of the PBJ raises questions for his double standard in major issues affecting the taxpayers’ money. The whole Nation knows that Treasury Secretary, PBJ is a convicted fraudster. It is an irreversible fact that PBJ is heavily under obligation to the President who saved him from disgrace and therefore committed to perform any misdeed and to wash any load of dirty linen for the government.

The whole Nation is aware that in the recent past PBJ admitted guilt and paid a fine of Rs 500,000.00 imposed by the Supreme Court for his connivance in fraudulent transactions that cost government dearly. Further to an order by the Supreme Court, by way of an affidavit PBJ gave a firm undertaking not to accept any public office. Therefore, for his own good, and if he has iota of common sense, PBJ should realise that he is a declared fraudster by the Supreme Court and therefore vulnerable to attack for his own misdeeds. On the other hand his holding of the office of the Secretary to the Treasury portrays a vivid example of where the rule of law stands in this country. Tell a Friend
