Basil Rajapakse remanded: Stealing billions and stashing them in Dubai banks

So Basil Rajapakse has been remanded. Stealing billions and stashing them in Dubai banks. Not quite.

He has been charged with

a) Providing LKR 2,500/per family for repairing houses of 1.4 million Samurdhi  families .
b) Paying Compensation of 1,700/person to 1,067 Samurdhi Officers for voluntary retirement.
c) Spending 23 million on Printing Samurdhi Diaries (*).

(*) Note Samurdhi Diaries were also printed in 2004 with photos of then Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.

Really, what a joke.  I was expecting to see at least a couple of million transferred to some bank account. Or at least a Lamborghini or Ferrari.

In contrast Arjunan Mahendran who will cost Sri Lanka a minimum LKR 12.5 billion in interestpayments has been found to have done no wrong.
