SLTB sue the former President, Anura Yapa and Susil Premajayanth
SLTB has filed a case against the former President, SLFP General Secretary Anura Priyadharshana Yapa, UPFA General Secretary Susil Premajayanth and former Chief of Presidential Staff Gamini Senarath.
The case was filed with regard to the use of their buses during the last Presidential election and not paying the due sum of 142.5 million rupees.
The Legal Division of the SLTB has filed the case at the Civil Commercial High Court.
The cabinet approval was obtained recently to take legal measures against the denial of payment for the use of SLTB buses during the last Presidential election.
At that time, the Minister’s cabinet proposal stated that the UPFA has only paid a sum of 50 million rupees as an advance payment, out of the total sum of money.
Therefore, the cabinet paper further stated that even though a bill was sent to the UPFA General Secretary requesting to pay the remaining 142.5 million rupees, no measures have been taken to pay the amount.
