Chief Prelate of Nugegoda Nalandaramaya Most Ven Thiniyawala Palitha Nayaka Thera filed a fundamental rights petition in the Supreme Court on Tuesday (20) against State Minister Ajith Nivard Cabraal for allegedly embezzling more than Rs. 23 billion.
The case has been filed against Ajith Nivard Cabraal, the State Minister of Finance, Capital Market and Public Enterprise Reforms, by the Thiniyawala Palitha Theroey to request from the Attorney General to recover the misappropriated money by him and to sue him under criminal charges.
By making a special statement to “lankanewsweek” Ven Thiniyawala Palitha Thero state…..
“Ajith Nivard Cabraal has embezzled Rs. 1332 million of public money along with a CIA operative in the United States who had been imprisoned for 12 years. The person who gave the money has gone to Parliament from the national list and leading a comfortable life after getting the State Ministry portfolio of Finance.
The whole country knows that Ajith Nivard Cabraal has a better history of corruption and irregularities.
Accordingly, as the members of the Maha Sangha, we strongly emphasize that the corrupt persons such as Ajith Nivard Cabraal and PB Jayasundara, who have been charged with serious offenses including fraud, corruption, irregularities and destruction of public property, should not be appointed to any state administrative position and should be litigated and punished.
