Milco Chairman files CID complaint regarding fuel fraud
Milco Chairman Renuka Perera has filed a complaint with the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) regarding a fuel fraud related to selling more than 132,000 litres of diesel illegally at the Ambewela Highland Dairy Factory.
The Chairman earlier said that he had received the report related to the investigation into the fraud and that disciplinary action had been taken against several employees involved in it.
Perera noted this making a special statement to the media after making an observation tour of the Ambewela Highland Dairy Factory recently.
“In late 2019, 2020 and 2021, a serious fraud has taken place in this institution. I found information that more than 130,000 litres of diesel has been sold fraudulently. Accordingly, last week I appointed an investigation team for this and later received their report. According to the report, I came to this place and took the necessary preliminary actions. I plan to make a complaint to the Criminal Investigation Department in this regard,” he said. He said necessary measures have been taken so far to suspend the person directly involved in the crime and another officer who aided him and to transfer an officer of that department for not mentioning the information.
