* Sri Lanka Tamil party accuses authorities of demanding bribes to distribute houses to beneficiaries in the North
Tue, Apr 1, 2014, 07:12 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 01, Colombo: Parliamentarian of Sri Lanka's major Tamil party, Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Sivasakthy Ananthan has said that there were issues over the distribution of houses among beneficiaries in the North.

The MP told the media that there is a scam taking place in distributing houses to the beneficiaries and alleged that authorities are demanding bribes from the resettled people.

Ananthan has pointed out that such issues are currently taking place in the Mannar District, especially within the Musali Pradeshiya Sabha area, Kaakayankulam and Iranai-Ilupankulam.

The MP told media that he has received many complaints from Mannar that even the local officials at District Secretariat and Grama Sevaka level are demanding bribes.

Ananthan charged that priority is not given to those who were affected by war and have lost their houses, but to persons who have paid bribes ranging from Rs 10,000 to Rs 50,000.
