The NFF leader MP Wimal Weerawansa appeared before the Presidential Commission of Inquiry on Massive Fraud and corruption for the first time this morning.

MP Weerawansa was summoned before the Commission to record a statement with regard to several alleged financial abuses of the then Ministry of Housing and Public Utilities.

A Commission spokesman told our news team that Weerawansa had been informed on previous occasions to report to the Commission but he failed to do so.

Among the allegations levelled against MP Weerawansa are: providing free fuel to his private staff through State Engineering Corporation affiliated to the then ministry of Housing and Public Utilities and offering housing and shops to his relatives and others known to him,  through the then Housing Development Authority.

A senior Commission officer said that the MP has allegedly abused government’s funds amounting to 100 million rupees.
