Foreign Affairs Minister Ravi Karunanayake said today he would give proper answers to the allegations made against him when he attend the Presidential Commission of Inquiry (PCoI) on August 2.

He said that there was a conspiracy to tarnish his character.

He told journalists at an event held to mark the National Youth Flag Day, that nothing has happened to the members of the previous regime who destroyed this country.

"But there is a hue and cry when a minister of this Government was summoned by an Independent Commission. This government carries out its work in a transparent manner. Don't they know I am a Cabinet minister when summoning me to be present on Tuesday? I was summoned on the day I had to attend the Cabinet meeting. Therefore I informed the Commission through my lawyers to allocate another day,” the minister said.

“These things were mentioned in parliament seven or eight months ago. There is nothing to hide. Two or three media houses are attempting to assassinate my character for no reason,”he said.

He said he would answer any question asked from him and expose the truth for the entire country.

    This what is called "Got caught pants down". It is nothing to do with the definition of "Transparency".

    Ravi, One question, after the findings are made by the Commission one day, if your conduct is shown as corrupt will you resign first before attempting to defend any accusation

    We will soon see how transparent the government is.

    MY MIND GOES TO THAT PITHY SINHALA SAYING WHEN A MAN WAS CAUGHT NOT WITH PANTS DOWN LIKE THIS MAN HE SAID THAT HE CLIMBED THE TREE NOT DRINK TODDY BUT TO CUT GRASS.

    Say that again."Trying to tarnish my character".The damage has been done not by the media but your own conduct.

    This finding has a detrimental effect on the govt., and if proved, Ravi should resign without hesitation. However, without jumping to conclusion, we shall wait for the hearing on 2 August.

    "expose the truth for the entire country" OK -- however according to the following quote - “There is no doubt fiction makes a better job of the truth.” ― Doris Lessing

    Being a minister in the UNP holding an honorable post should have been thought of before your greediness and trying to fulfill your family needs. If you are guilty, please resign immediately before disgracing the party.

    BUT, to do so you must go to the PCOI in the first place, no? You are avoiding giving excuses, no!
