Action on Ravi put off


30 March 2018 03:02 am - 8     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The UNP working committee had decided to put off taking action against Former Minister Ravi Karunanayake till it gets the opinion from the Attorney General on the recommendations made on the former Minister over the bond commission report, party sources said yesterday.

The Bond commission recommended that legal action should be taken against Mr. Karunanayake if it is proven that he had committed some offence. The commission said Mr. Karuanayakae may have misled it during questioning.

The UNP working committee later decided to get the opinion of the Attorney General in this regard. Party then appointed a commission headed by Minister Tilak Marapana which recommended that former Minister should be removed from the Assistant leader’s post. However the working committee had decided to put off taking action against Mr. Karunanayake till Attorney general comes out with his opinion. (Yohan Perera)

    UNP needs every vote in the parliament against Ranil' s no confidence motion. So no wonder UNP has decided this way.

    When things are looking really hopeless for politicians, the only hope is the Attorney General.

    RK should not serve in the parliament as a public figure. He accepted bribes favors and other financial benefits from rogues who ripped off public funds. We have seen all with plenty evidence and we still tolerate biased and corrupt judiciary system influenced by politicians.
