MP Gunawardena’s accusation of a fellow MP is at odds with the factual record

Relevant Hansard extracts (see Exhibits 1 and 2) show that MP Gunawardena was wrong on two counts – on the report and on the language of translation.

Report: MP Sumanthiran did not raise any issue with the Bond Commission Report; he only raised an issue with the PRECIFAC report being provided exclusively in Sinhala. 

Language of translation: MP Sumanthiran did not insist on Sinhala and Tamil translation of the PRECIFAC report (which is in Sinhala), but on either an English or a Tamil translation.

Since MP Gunawardena makes an accusation that is at odds with the record, we classified his statement as BLATANTLY FALSE.
