Minister of Foreign Affairs Ravi Karunanayake yesterday said there is nothing new in summoning him to the Presidential Commission investigating the bond issue.

Minister Karunanayake came up with this remark in Parliament in response to Joint Opposition MP Mahindananada Aluthgamage who made some allegations against him earlier during the sessions.

“MP Aluthgamage was engaged in assassinating my character earlier during the sessions and the person who did that today faces corruption charges himself,” the Minister said.

He said what Mr Aluthgamage came up with in his speech in the House was not relevant for yesterday’s debate.

“ I was summoned to the Presidential Commission today but I informed the Commission that I cannot attend as it was important to attend Parliament sessions as a Minister,” he added.(Yohan Perera and Ajith Siriwardana)

    Of the 225 MPs being voted and being paid by the innocent citizens of this country, how many of them submitted their list of assets and belongings before being entered to last general elections? High time the public be vigilant is entertaining them to parliment what ever party or rank he may be.

    He should be suspended from his minister-ship while this investigation. Where we can clearly see his involvement. But unfortunately in Sri Lanka any politician can steal anything since everyone is stealing.
