UNP backbench MPs today called for the setting up of a Presidential Commission of Inquiry (PCoI) to probe the allegations which had been made in the news report published by the New York Times.

The request for the PCoI was made by UNP MP Mujibur Rahman at a news briefing held at parliamentary complex this morning.

Asked whether the request was his personal one, Mr. Rahman said it was his personal one but UNP is also of the opinion that the allegations made in the New York Times report should be probed.

“I am expressing my own opinion but my party is also of the opinion that the allegations has to be probed,” the MP said. (Yohan Perera and Ajith Siriwardana)

    Why didn't you make comments like this during the previous regime. What did they do productively except fill their pockets and fatten their bank accounts??

    Umen Friday, 06 July 2018 06:39 PM

    You can appoint any henchmen you like to a presidential commission. Better is to allow CID to probe it since already a complaint has been made

    Presidential commission. One after another. And another. But nothing get happen. Public money is wasted for seeking political mileage. Nothing else. Very sad state of affairs

    Our politicians and bueurocrats are very inefficient and incapable since they have not read Central bank reports and Chinese studied and educated every one. If it is only 10% ( 5 billion usd out of total debt of 50 billion) of total loan and 60 % out of 10 is our n concessionary and next question is at what rate we borrowed money from others including world bank ADB IMF for projects such as Mahaweli etcChinese Embassy said we are trapped and it is not Chinese debt trap but lack of development trap and they supported us to get rid of development trap by investing on infrastructure others did not

    Whatever commission you appoint, nothing will be faster than Bond Commission.

    MP Friday, 06 July 2018 03:27 PM

    First sort of Central Bank robbery!

    Disgusted Friday, 06 July 2018 04:56 PM

    Why only the Central Bank robbery? What about the robbery from the whole country under the previous regime??

    Gune Friday, 06 July 2018 04:05 PM

    Please investigate and take action for what you (UNP) were elected. You guy have been hoodwinking the general public and now that the elections our close trying to orchestrate unwanted things

    The Hon.PM has already contradicted part of the report. So the base argument of whether you can trust the NYT report has gone through the window. You cant appoint a commission to probe a part of the report that you prefer.

    GH Friday, 06 July 2018 06:17 PM

    You all puppets of USA, first of all probe the allegation leveled against your administration in the local papers.

    Children are getting molested, women are getting harassed, the elderly are dying without proper shelter, the farmers are committing suicide, pollution is rising, food is at an all time high, every government department has staged a protest, higher education is in shambles, dengue is taking lives of children, the underworld is running riot, and politicians are looting public funds left and right, elections are on hold at the government's whim while convicted criminals are allowed to walk. But the greatest need right now is a PCoI into some silly NYT article! When can we vote these imbeciles out?
