Bonds Scam I contacted Aloysius to conduct research – Sujeewa
State Minister Sujeewa Senasinghe affirmed that he had contacted the Owner of Perpetual Treasuries Limited, Arjun Aloysius in an effort to gather details for his book that he was authoring related to the sale of Treasury Bonds and also in a bid to clarify certain other issues and to verify a few other details.
The State Minister made this remark speaking to reporters during a press briefing held at Sirikotha yesterday (21).
He added that “during the Committee on Public Enterprises (COPE) proceedings it was I who questioned at length regarding former Central Bank Governor Arjuna Mahendran. I have always worked to uphold the status of the United National Party (UNP) and have never tarnished its image through my actions. I can also challenge anyone to prove that I have earned even a cent by having pawned the respect and traditions of this grand old party. Thus far nowhere has it been mentioned that any person is guilty of the Bonds scam. Also, the COPE Committee cannot deem anyone guilty of any charge.”
“Although it has come to light that Perpetual Treasuries Limited has been involved in this scam, we have thus far not had any proof to level charges. We were only able to deem that they had earned a hefty amount of illegal revenue in a short period. Even when I had penned a book regarding the Bonds scam, I was never summoned before the Presidential Commission of Inquiry.
Furthermore, the Commission should have probed the bonds sales not from 2015, but since 2008. If that had taken place all necessary details could have been exposed. A majority wanted to prevent a group of young and bright UNP MPs from coming to the fore by slinging mud at them. Why was only a Commission set up? Why were such Commissions not formed to probe the low quality petrol, the MiG Scandal and the ship deals, etc?”

The UNP should drop the President because of our Country’s economy as he does not appear to trust our Engineers to get investors to our country because of our President the moment he became President made a declaration about climate change to please the west he did this twice one of them recently when our per capita carbon emissions were one of the lowest in the world of 0.67 while the per capita carbon emission of 0.61 metric tons per year is very low compare it with Malaysia a developing Country (6.7) and the US a developed Country (19.78), is 10 times and 30 times more respectively and as such there should not be any concern regarding carbon emissions these are supported by the per capita carbon emission per year statistics from the internet .and also it can be stated from the data from internet it can be computed that even if we have 10 coal power stations the size of Norochoholai producing a total of 70 billion units per year, our per capita carbon emission per year will not exceed 70×109/21×106= 3040 Kg=3.04 metric tons assuming a population of 21 million and 1000Kg= a metric ton, as such there is no threat of carbon emission to our country by planning for accelerated coal power projects as many as required for our country. The President’s statement contravenes article 3,4,12, 27 and 33 (f) of our constitution and as such direct foreign investors are avoiding us like a plague and also his reliance on solar power can be established has the biggest fraud committed in our country’s history amounting to several hundred million US dollars which also has destabilized our country’s economy . This has been sent to cope by sending a copy of a letter to NEC address to all MPs in Parliament which establishes the above statements and also by our President’s avoidance of burning coal we the people are losing over a Billion rupees. per day. This document should be obtained from COPE by Minister Sujeewa Serasinghe and studied and he will find the reasons no investors are coming to our country
