Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe is reported to have appointed a committee headed by his Secretary Saman Ekanayake to inquire into allegations that Rs.1.2 billion had disappeared from the Central Cultural Fund (CCF).

This matter was raised by Power and Energy Minister Ravi Karunanayake at a meeting held prior to Tuesday's Cabinet meeting.

The CCF is under the purview of Housing, Construction and Cultural Affairs Minister Sajith Premadasa, who is seeking to be the United National Party (UNP) presidential candidate.

One of those opposing Mr. Premadasa's candidacy is Minister Karunanayake, who had confirmed to the Daily Mirror that such an inquiry was to be carried out. (Kelum Bandara)
