Mayor ordered a personal payment

Reported on December 14, 2015 from Sri Jayawardenapura Kotte , Western  ι Report #85887

Mayor Janaka Ranawaka ordered I brought a large sum amounting to 850,000/- to his home in Sapumal Place, Rajagiriya so that I could proceed with my business without him putting a stop to it. This is common practice and he has built many large mansions with the money he has wrongfully collected from the poor business man. If I refused to pay this sum he would have sent his three-wheeler thugs and destroyed my shop so I had no choice. I can not even go to the police as they are all under his power and my life will be at risk if I did so. What a pathetic country we live in. I envy the man with money who can afford to leave this country and live a better life abroad.
