A tense situation prevailed at yesterday's Cabinet meeting over the Avant-Garde controversy amid several ministers, including Ministers Patali Champika Ranawaka and Rajitha Senaratne, criticising the government’s stance on this matter.

Some ministers, including Law and Order Minister Tilak Marapana, explained to the Cabinet that there were no shady deals in connection with the floating armoury belonging to Avant Garde.

However, the situation remained tense for sometime with the Cabinet ministers expressing contrasting views on this controversy.

    What is hones about covering up dishonesty. Marapone - a la Al Capone - appeared for Avant Garde as lawyer - so e must support them.

    All these are behind the money thrown out of Awant guard

    Minister Tilak Marapana is blaming the Police for investigating to please certain politicians (Either PM or President). What does the Police say?

    Sapu Friday, 06 November 2015 06:16 PM

    Tilak Marapana should be kicked or powers reduced

    Upul Friday, 06 November 2015 06:40 PM

    Thilak Marapona is a disgrace to the YAHAPALANA Govt. He should be kicked out right away for safeguarding the crooks. He is trying to save his payroll slot at Avant-Garde.

    There is a clear conflict of interest. If this is a true yahapalana government the President should immediately sack Marapane. via DM Android App

    That is probably the end of that

    Surprising statement by Minister in the Parliament. There is a clear conflict of interest. He should not have accepted the portfolio and the PM should not have taken him to the cabinet. At least now he ought to resign both from the cabinet and the Parliament.

    Mr.Marapane has advised this company Avant-Garde in the past.So that is why is speaks on behalf them now.Shame on you.
