SriLankan Airlines does not have an instruction manual or guide to follow when it comes to obtaining foreign loans and other financial services, Company Head of Finance Yasantha Dissanyake informed the PCoI into irregularities at SriLankan Airlines, SriLankan Catering and Mihin Lanka yesterday.  

Responding to a question by Rtd. Additional Solicitor General Neil Unamboowe, he informed the Commission that SriLankan had never followed a manual to cover loans.   
“However this is not covered in the government procurement manual as well. I have consulted the AG on the matter too and I was told loans and finances are not covered in the government procurement manual. But we have accounted for everything and everything has board approval,” he said.   


He informed the Commission that the Board of Directors of SriLankan was the sole procurement authority.   


Unamboowe PC then questioned the witness what steps and procedures does the UL follow when obtaining loans and other financial services for which the witness replied that it depended on the transactions and the Company always tried to get the most favourable terms.
