Did Sri Lanka Cricket bribe Buddhist monk?

Joint Opposition MP Ananda Aluthgamage alleged that SLC had offered a bribe to the Chief Prelate in order to obtain a land to set up a cricket university.

Committee on Public Enterprises (COPE) Chairman Sunil Handunnetti said COPE only requested Auditor General to get a statement from the Chief prelate about the leasing of the land.

“We made this request form the Auditor General as nothing had been done on the proposed cricket university, although a land belong to the Malwatte chapter has been leased out. COPE never intend to insult the Mahanayaka Thera or to put him into difficulty,” he said.

COPE only requested AG to get a statement from the chief prelate about the leasing of the land.
