Health Minister Pavithra Wanniarachchi today rejected remarks made by former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe that the World Health Organisation (WHO) had released USD 230 million to Sri Lanka for COVID-19 operations.
“Mr. Wickremesinghe said that I should reveal how these funds were utilized in COVID-19 operations. I have with me a report given by the WHO country representative which says the WHO has only released USD 1.9 million to Sri Lanka and that a sum of only USD 2.2 million expected to be released to Sri Lanka up to next year,” she said speaking to the media.
She said there is no truth in the reports of the country receiving USD 230 million when in fact it is only around USD 2 million that it had received from the WHO.
DONT KNOW HOW RW GOT HIS FIGURE OF $230 M. HAS HE GOT ANY PROOF. ANYWAY RW WANTED TO KNOW HOW THE MONEY WAS SPENT. THEREFORE THE MINISTER SHOULD GIVE DETAILS OF EXPENSES EVEN FOR THE AMOUNT SHE CLAIMS AS RECEIVED

This Minister is generally a clueless human being so whatever she says must be taken with a pinch of salt. However she must give the public a breakdown what has happened to the money

Please appoint a Commission to check on the figures and report how the money was spent

Please do not worry, madam. This guy who master-minded the greatest bank robbery south-Asia has experienced does not know what he is saying. Nobody takes his words seriously.

The balance money went straight to the Virgin Islands account of the Great Dictator
