'Disappointed with President' - Sujeewa
2017-Nov-22 | By News Admin

State Minister of International Trade Sujeewa Senasinghe has said that he is disappointed with President Maithripala Sirisena for using the Presidential Commission of Inquiry into the Central Bank Bond scam as a tool to sling mud at the UNP.

Addressing a media briefing at the UNP headquarters yesterday, the Minister said the PCOI could have wrapped up its inquiry in three months as was stipulated but was extended a further three months to bring the UNP into disrepute.

“We helped elect this president for the promises he made and we made sacrifices. I’m very disappointed with the President. He is using the Commission to sling mud at our party,” the Minister said, claiming that it was a conspiracy by the SLFP.

He also demanded to know why similar PCOIs have not been set up to investigate other alleged financial scandals.

“Where are the presidential commissions to investigate the MIG deal, the SPECTRUM deal?”

The State Minister also took the opportunity to respond to allegations against him pertaining to the controversial Central Bank bond scam.
