JVP Leader MP Anura Kumara Dissanayake says that the process of whitewashing dirty money earned through the alleged CB Bond scam was currently being facilitated under...... the current regime.

He said if someone has earned money illegally such person should also bear in mind that he will not be able to hold onto such ill-gotten gain for very long.

Dissanayake charged that the money earned through the alleged scam overseen by former Governor Arjun Mahendran was currently being used for various purposes through the firm Perpetual Treasuries.

He alleged that at one stage the loss caused to the State through the controversial scandal had been estimated at Rs 9.6 billion while an even bigger amount had been accrued by Perpetual Treasuries which suggests the difference between the loss and revenue.

He said the JVP will not allow the government to impose a tax on the EPF and the ETF.

The JVP leader vowed it would not allow the government to dictate terms to the public as workers must be provided with the privilege to enjoy the benefits of the funds in which they had invested during years of work.
