The Attorney General today informed the Supreme Court that a committee appointed by new Government is currently reviewing the context of the Sri Lanka–Singapore Free Trade Agreement signed by the previous government.

Senior State Counsel Nirmalan Vigneshwaran appearing for the Attorney General informed Supreme Court two-judge-bench headed by Justice Priyantha Jayawardena that final report in this regard would be submitted to court once reviewing process was concluded.

    The arse-holes in this country will want to review all agreements with other countries other than China. Agreements with China are signed blindly selling part of the country, national assets and financially bankrupting the country.

    Singapore benefitted heavily from the previous govt's selling of hambantota port. If it was in the hands of Sri Lanka, we could've made it the hub of navigation in the Indian ocean. The trade agreement is also a similar matter. All those agreements should be reviewed to make sure if they're harmful to our interests or not

    No wonder why we are so behind from most of the developing countries. One government sign an agreements and the next one come cancel them.

    We are signing foreign trade agreements without a comprehensive foreign trade policy document. So that every Tom and Jerry makes merry while in power. And we citizens and our children have to bear the burden.

    Will you do business with a company which reviews your agreements with an aim to terminate business arrangements whenever there is a change in the Managing Director?

    Clau Eri Monday, 13 July 2020 06:44 PM

    Without reading properly, without consulting proper officials just signing for their benefits. Check who signed and check his bank balance and arrest him.
