    This is very unfair. Duminda should have been appointed Executive Managing Director with complete authority over the company.

    Beware, we can expect gun battle at the board meeting.

    Mason Tuesday, 24 September 2013 06:14 AM

    All for "good cause". There will be no further investigations.

    Share prices up by 75%. Touchwood is proving the allegations set against them by appointing Mr. DS as a director. Next director should be Dr. Mervyn Silva!

    Funny director. All norms & custom of parliament is vanished .
