Ranjan Files RTI Request Seeking Names Of 118 MPs Who Obtained Money From Arjuna Aloysius

Deputy Minister Ranjan Ramanayake said he filed an RTI request seeking details on MPs who allegedly obtained money from Perpetual Treasuries owner Arjuna Aloysius. 

"Filed a RTI request, requesting details of all those who got robbed money from PTL & Alloysius, 118 names, it will be very interesting," Ramanayake tweeted today. 

Speaking to media, former Minister Dayasiri Jayasekera said 118 other Parliamentarians had taken a sum totaling Rs.1.3 billion for electioneering from the controversial businessman who is at the centre of the Treasury bonds fiasco. 

Jayasekera, who quit the government having voted against Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe at the no-confidence vote, said he did nothing wrong in accepting the funds which he had used for his electioneering to seek a Parliament seat.

The Parliamentarian said the names of MPs who obtained money from Aloysius had been included in the Bond commission report.
