Law not implemented for those who wield power – Amunugama

Those who are involved in large scale frauds and corruption are not arrested but only those who are involved in minor incidents are being prosecuted says Senior Minister Sarath Amunugama.

Speaking in Parliament yesterday (17th)at the debate regarding increasing fuel allowances to members of the Bribery Commission Minister Amunugama said despite there are many accusations regarding taking bribes, frauds, and corruption against those who wield power, they are not prosecuted. However, innocent people are charged.

He said we should admit that people have many issues at present when trying to get various services. Big fish is allowed to escape but small fry is caught said the Minister.

C'est vrai Monsieur le Ministre. But your cousin/nephew's polygami (more than bigami)is a very good example. Why are you with them if you preach so! You should follow Hon. Karu Jayasuriya and your "Mahagedera" is Sirikotha and not the adopted abode at highly corrupted Medamulana.

THE REASON WHY THE 20 MILLION POPULATION HAVE VOTED AND SENT 225 TO PARLIAMENT, INCLUDING YOU MINISTER IS TO SEE THAT SUCH THINGS DONT HAPPEN. OTHERWISE THE 20 MILLION WILL HAVE TO COME TO PARLIAMENT TO RECTIFY IT.
LOOKS LIKE THE GOVT MEMBERS HAVE FORGOTTEN WHOM THEY REPRESENT AND FOR WHAT
