The Housing Ministry has recorded statements from a senior official attached to the Condominium Management Authority (CMA)  over allegations of having solicited a sexual bribe from a female employee in 2015. The inquiry was launched after an anonymous letter was received by the Housing Ministry secretary.

CMA Chairman Sarana Karunaratna told Daily Mirror that an inquiry was launched by the internal audit department of the State Ministry of Rural Housing and Construction & Building Material Industries following an anonymous letter received by the Ministry Secretary this year.   

He said the statements were recorded from the official, the victim and a third party.  

“However, no complaint has been made in relation to the incident even by the victim or anyone else,” Mr. Karunaratna said adding that the senior official and the victim were still working at the CMA.
