Warnasinghe gets tongue tied

US $ 100 mn bribery allegation:


by Harischnadra Gunaratna

Jathika Hela Urumaya Spokesman Nishantha Sri Warnasinghe on Thursday was ruffled when The Island asked when his party would complain to the FCID of the powerful Cabinet minister or ministers who, he said, had accepted a USD 100 million as a bribe to facilitate the Hambantota Port deal with a Chinese company.

At an earlier press conference Warnasinghe categorically stated that the JHU would lodge a complaint with the FCID against the Minister.

But, on Friday he was nonplussed when The island raised the issue at the party headquarters at Battaramulla and did not divulge the name of the Minister against whom he made the allegation.
