MPs obtain bribes to fill BoC positions
The Bank of Ceylon is to recruit 1,500 banking assistants. UNP MPs have got these job opportunities shared among them at 50 each, reports say. Nominees in their lists will fill the vacancies.
The interviews for these jobs have been called, not by the bank, but by the enterprise development ministry of the UNP general secretary. The MPs and officials have obtained between Rs. 300,000 and Rs. 500,000 for each job opportunity, according to complaints being received by the BoC.
The general manager should act upon these complaints. That position is held by Senarath Bandara, who assumed duties yesterday. He is a relative of UNP MP Ashok Abveysinghe. He was made the GM in order to cover up the complaints. Sudath Gunasekara, an officer senior to him, was sidelined for the position by Kabir Hashim, accusing him of being a Rajapaksa loyalist. The chairman position of the bank too, is to change soon, say bank sources.
We will expose the acts of corruption that have taken place in the BoC one by one.
