Some powerful 16 MPs from both the Government and the Opposition accepted money from the Perceptual Treasuries Chief Arjun Aloysius, Centre for Human Rights and Research (CHR) Executive Director Keerthi Tennakoon alleged yesterday. 


All those who have taken money from the PTL are not only politicians


Addressing a news briefing, he said the 16 MPs had obtained money on separate occasions via ‘crossed’ Cheques and cash cheques. 

“Allegations have been levelled at different politicians over taking money from the PTL.  It should be noted that all those who have taken money from the PTL are not politicians. Several civil activists, religious leaders, and professionals should also be included in the list,” Tennakoon said. 

He said that the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) report on the Central Bank bond scam, which had not been made public yet, would expose all 118 individuals, who had obtained money from the PTL. 

He said although now it is six months since the final report on the CB bond fraud had been issued, the mastermind of the bond scam had not been taken into custody.
