Piyasiri in Lankan delegation to Japan; Bimal raises concerns in the House

Bimal-Ratnayake-700-02

JVP MP Bimal Rathnayake has raised concerns over former Parliamentarian Piyasiri Wijenayake, who is accused of corruption as per the PRECIFAC report, being part of the Sri Lankan delegation that accompanied the President to his state visit to Japan.

Addressing the House recently Bimal Rathnayake stated that about 200 individuals are accused of wrongdoing as per the PRECIFAC report and Wijenayake is among them. Wijenayake has been found guilty of corruption according to the report of the Presidential Commission of Inquiry to investigate and inquire into Serious Acts of Fraud, Corruption and Abuse of Power, State Resources and Privileges (PRECIFAC) tabled in Parliament last month.

"Wijeyanaya travelled to Japan with the President as a member of the official delegation and even sat in the round-table discussion with the Japanese Prime Minister. How can the court cases and legal proceedings against Wijanayake proceed under these circumstances? Does not this act make a negative influence on the Judiciary and Police?" he asked.
