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