Rathana Thera urged to speak up against SriLankan scam

The United National Party (UNP) today urged MP Venerable Athuraliye Rathana Thera to speak up against the Airbus- SriLankan scam.

UNP MP Nalin Bandara speaking in Parliament today (20) said that Rathana Thera had remained mum about the subject.

“Athuraliye Rathana Thera has spoken against the Millennium Challenge Corporation( MCC) agreement, the Central Bank bond scam and the Wilpattu deforestation. ”

“We urge the Thera to stand up against this massive fraud that has taken place during the Rajapaksa regime for the sake of the country,” Bandara added.

The Thera,  however, was not present at today’s (20) parliamentary debate on the Airbus- SriLankan scam.
