Chairman and seven children in 70,000 rupee 'official visit'

16 July 2006


(LeN-July 16, 2.45 pm) Foreign Employment Bureau Chairman Jagath Wellawatta has spent two days in a hotel at Nuwara Eliya under the pretext of an 'official tour' citing false reasons and the bill has been settled by the Bureau.

The amount paid is 70,000 rupees. In the advance voucher a sum of 20,000 rupees had been requested allegedly for Wellawatta and officials visit and the money had been taken on December 29 ad it had been deposited on the same day at the Hatton National Bank account no: 84488022 maintained by Alpine Hotel in which the rooms were booked.

Although the visit had been mentioned as 'official' in documents, Wellawatta who had booked five rooms had spend the two days with five small kids. This had been mentioned in the bill sent to the FEB Chairman on January 13th ,2006 by the hotel's accountant.

According to the bill, 11 adults too had stayed in the Hotel with him. The bill had been sent to Wellawatta requesting him to settle the balance of 52,250 rupees as soon as possible.

Employees of the Foreign Employment Bureau question what clause of the Mahinda Chintanaya endorses the Chairman's lavish spending of public funds for the opulence of his family members.
