MPs Wimal Weerawansa and Wasudeva Nanayakkara made a complaint with the Bribery Commission today against former president Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga.
In their compliant, the two MPs stated that the Bribery Commission has failed to take action following a Supreme Court order issued in connection with a particular transaction that had been executed during the tenure of former President Kumaratunga.
MP Wasudeva Nanayakkara filed a fundamental case in 2007; citing, the Fuel Supply Unit of the Colombo Port together with a 10 acre bloc of land was arbitrarily given to a private company.
MP Wasudeva Nanayakkara stated in his petition that a huge loss was made to the then government as well as port workers.
Having considered this case, the Supreme Court ordered to take over the said fuel supply unit and the land.
The Bribery commission and the CID were also ordered to conduct a further investigation and submit a report to the Supreme Court.
However, MP Wasudeva Nanayakkara stated in his petition, submitted today, that the Bribery Commission has failed to obey the Supreme Court order, thereby no remedial action was made so far.
Therefore, MP Nanayakkara requested the Bribery commission to investigate this incident.
