Minister Malik Samarawickrama the one time controversial businessman who has a habit of putting his finger into every contract and has more than 10 bribery charges filed against him by the public for giving concessions to businessmen in return for favors, is about to meet his Waterloo.
His allegiance to Ranil and Mangala will not save him this time, because the President is not willing to pardon anyone.
Much was expected of Kabir Hashim. His family members have even been accused of taking bribes to put people into the banks. He has also been accused of buying expensive cars and houses from his illegal bank accounts. Many charges have been leveled against him by the Public. Instead of taking action against him, the Prime Minister gave Kabir Hashim more responsibility and the opportunity to become even more corrupt. He has petroleum and roads. According to unconfirmed reports, these two can bring the government into severe disrepute. They are to be arrested for their involvement in the Bond Scam, after the recent conversations with those arrested last week by the CID.
