JVP to go to Bribery Comm. against Namal, Basil and Cabraal

The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) today said that they have no intention of joining the national unity government, despite an invitation from President Maithripala Sirisena and other parties.

Sirisena, in his first address to the nation in Kandy yesterday (11), invited all political parties in parliament to unite in forming the all-party government.

“We have no intention of joining this government. By government they mean their Cabinet. The JVP is not prepared to obtain ministerial portfolios in this cabinet or intervene in this cabinet,” the Marxist party’s leader, Anura Kumara Dissanayake, told reporters in Colombo.

He stated that the reason for their decision is due to the fact that they have immense experience of what a “100-day cabinet” can actually do.  

The JVP Leader further said that they will lodge complaints with the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption against a large group of individuals including MP Namal Rajapaksa, former Minister Basil Rajapaksa, former Central Bank Governor Ajith Nivard Cabraal and the individuals involved in the controversial ‘hedging deal.’
