SJB supports conducting formal audit on sugar scam
Samagi Jana Balawegaya Parliamentarian Harsha de Silva says that a formal audit should be held to ascertain the loss incurred by the Government’s decision to reduce the Special Commodity Levy on sugar imports.
"This is not a complaint levelled by the Opposition, however, an audit is needed as we need to calculate the loss incurred along with this complaint. " MP De Silva said.
Neither the Ministry of Trade nor the Finance Ministry is taking the blame for this issue, and the responsible party behind the loss should be recognised, he said.
Accordingly, MP De Silva emphasised that the Samagi Jana Balawegaya too approves the motion seeking an audit submitted by the Chairman of the Finance Committee of the Parliament, chaired by MP Anura Priyadarshana Yapa.
