Wimal Among the Accused

By Nirmala Kannangara
Among the list of names of Ministers and MPs in the former regime accused of bribery or corruption, former Housing and Construction Minister Wimal Weerawansa’s name is in the forefront.
Weerawansa whose sole income when he was a member in the JVP was the earnings he got from running a communication center at Mawaramandiya in Kadawatha. However from the time he extended his support to the Rajapaksa administration in 2008, Weerawansa became a millionaire from unknown source of income claims Kaduwela Mayor G.H. Buddhadasa.
Meanwhile Weerawansa is also accused of getting a diplomatic passport for his wife Shashi Weerawansa although ministerial spouses are not entitle to hold the prestigious red passport. It has come to the light how Shashi Weerawansa has obtained two identity cards misleading the Department of Registration of Persons and Department of Immigration and Emigration. All attempts to contact Wimal Weerawansa for a comment for the allegations levelled against him and his wife failed. Although a text message was forwarded seeking a comment, Weerawansa did not reply or return the call until the paper went for publication.

    Wimal Weerawansa is a very honest person and he always talks truth but nothing but the truth. This may be a false allegation.

  3. A Wise Donkey

    He is the man who asked in the House that can anyone cover a Labourghini with a ‘polkatta’? Now to cover your misdeeds we need a lorry load of ‘polathu’!

  4. Cobra

    If he wasn’t then I am not a cobra!!!

    Wimal is a leading patriot who still fight for the old regime. He has no time to look after himself or reply to charges against him as he is completely occupied in fighting corruption charges against the former President. He might soon decide to engage on a Fast To Death till all charges against the former President is dropped.

    Accusations against him may be 100% true. But he has no time to answer these allegations, because he has lot of work in Jathi Hithaishee movement. Furthermore he has to safeguard Sri lanka from international conspiracies. If we can find a way out to release him from these duties he may answer these allegations.

  13. RASIKA

    Wanchawansa made over 5500 millions with criminal raja crooks engaging in illegal activities.Most of that money have been invested in property,treasury bonds, shares and in private banks and finance companies. Sri lankan government must make full investigation about his minstrel dealing he had with treasury.

  14. housing minister make lot of illegal maney, he was jvp terror. one timeeven now he is scam government money. houseing sold by bribe did by his wife, contract was given with the big commission, he must investigate the corruption.
