Opposition Councilors accuse JMC administration of embezzlement, corruption

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 24 November 2010, 06:48 GMT]
Eight opposition councilors of Jaffna Municipal Council (JMC) led by Tamil National Alliance (TNA) councilor, M. Remediyas have jointly released a media report Tuesday accusing the JMC administration run by ruling United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) of embezzlement and corruption. The councilors have also sent a detailed report of the misadministration of JMC by its Mayor, Ms. Yogeswary Patkunam and Deputy Mayor in collaboration with Sri Lanka minister Douglas Devananda, to the Governor of Northern Province. The councilors pointed out in their report that the JMC administrators continue to reject whatever proposals submitted by the opposition councilors.

The councilors have publicly accused the JMC administrators of embezzlement of taxpayers’ money to promote their own political propaganda besides appointing persons close to them to key posts and also of renting out or sell JMC properties to persons whom they favour, in their Tuesday report released to local media.

They further accused the key persons in JMC administration of having made millions of rupees through embezzlement of JMC funds and assets.

The councilors have appealed to the Governor of Northern Province to take immediate action on the memorandum detailing JMC mismanagement and corruption submitted to him.
