How can this 25 year old youth do this ‘garlic scam’, when there are several highly paid govt officials
( Chairman, Board of Directors, GM/ DGMs & Ministy officials, etc) are there to manage this most important State Owned Enterprise (SOE) – Sathosa. Looking very ridiculous & puzzling to all ! The poor Executive Director (whistle blower) has lost his job for taking corrective action & leaking it to the media ? God has to save the people and the country, Sri Lanka.
