Unfortunately same type of company(same business) is owned by a another politician who is not in the same party .we will call him "D"
Second company owner(D)is needed to be punished and this is to be done legally ,but the problem is ,if he(D) is punished ,the businessman who supports the politicians (A)cannot be spared by the law.
So politician forced another wealthy businessman (we will call him "H")to buy the company which was owned by "A".
Interesting "A" bought this company some time back of government at Rs 6 per share and "H' had to buy this share at Rs 30 .After selling nearly 50 % by " A" to "H", " A" still owns nearly 30% , but "A" has covered his initial cost and booked a capital gain of 150%.
Since "H" is a prominent businessman ,he cannot tell what/who/why was forced him to buy this company .So he has taken the best option -Remain silent.
Not bad for "A" ,he got a good price and to show the public a different picture.
"D" was severely punished .
THIS IS AN ASSUMPTION BY ME.I MAY BE 100% WRONG. AND THESE TYPES OF THINGS WILL NEVER HAPPEN IN SRI LANKA.
