Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe reportedly told his Cabinet Ministers that he would implement the recommendations of the Tilak Marapana committee on the bond scam.
It is learnt that the Committee has recommended that MP Ravi Karunanayake should step down from his post as the Assistant Leader of the party and refrain from national political activities on behalf of the party.
The Prime Minister informed this to the Cabinet Ministers representing the UNP.
He convened them for a meeting at Temple Trees yesterday.
However, it is learnt that Mr. Karunanayake is refusing to adhere to the request by the party hierarchy. (Kelum Bandara)

We are not worried with what UNP is doing with Ravi. But he should not be given any public related positions including his parliamentary seat. Government should start with him the process

He was not the minister in charge of Central bank and the commission report does not indicate that he is involved in the bond scam. So there is no reason for him to step down from any post.

Not just step down as deputy leader of the UNP, he should be brought to justice as soon as possible.
