Misuse of State property Many vehicles not returned
More than 32 vehicles used by former Chief Ministers and MPs of North Central, Sabaragamuwa and Eastern Provincial Councils have not been handed over to the councils yet, Executive Director of Campaign for Free and Fair Elections (CaFFE), Rajith Keerthi Tennakoon said yesterday.
He stressed that the vehicles are still being used for political activities of former councillors.
“Several vehicles belonging to the NCP were seen during a series of meetings in Anuradhapura on 2 October. The CaFFE made a complaint to the NCP Governor that former NCP parliamentarians had participated in those meetings,” he stated.
Furthermore, he stated that such activities are clearly a misuse of State property. This is a punishable offense under the Law. He added and said “It is sad to see that public officials have still not understood the consequences of allowing State property to be misused. Therefore, the Governor and District Secretaries should take immediate measures to stop this.” Tennakoon urged.

My dear Mr Keerthi,
Don’t worry too much about vehicles not being returned.
Just go to leading Colombo School at school opening time and school closing time with a video recorder.
You can make a movie of the number of State Vehicles being used to transport children to school.
Mr Keerthi, the amude-wearing taxpayer of Sri Lanka pays a couple of millions per hour of tax to support this illegal activity by utterly corrupt (100%) Public and State Corporation Officers.
