Business community helps politicians, it's a known fact: Dayasiri justifies

 

UPFA Parliamentarian Dayasiri Jayasekara said that it is a known fact that the business community helps politicians during election campaigns, in Parliament today.

He made this statement at a press briefing, justifying his alleged involvement in obtaining a cheque worth Rs. 1 million from the Perpetual Treasuries Limited (PTL) in 2015.

Furthermore the Parliamentarian revealed that he was not the only Parliament member who had obtained monetary support from PTL Owner Arjun Aloysius and demanded authorities to reveal names of others as well.

Earlier this year, the Colombo High Court ordered to freezing all bank accounts of 24 companies of Perpetual Treasuries Group LD companies due to it's Owner Arjun Aloysius' and CEO Kasun Palisena's involvement in obtaining insider information  regarding the treasury bond auction that took place on February 27, 2015 which incurred a massive financial fraud of above Rs. 9 billion.
