It would be very difficult for Foreign Minister Ravi Karunanayake to maintain his credibility in the diplomatic arena after his credibility was shattered internally during the investigations into the controversial Central Bank bond deal, Minister of Technology, Technical Education and Employment Susil Premajayantha said.

Although questions were directed at him and he had answered them at the Presidential Commission of Inquiry, over the deal were not sufficient to clear his name, circumstantial evidences appear to suggest some possible offense had been committed, he said.

Minister Premajayantha said that peoples’ confidence in the Foreign Minister had been shattered due to the alleged controversial transaction that had been effected when he was the Minister of Finance.

“Under these circumstances it would be a serious matter to have confidence in his duties of international matters as well,” he said. (Dayaseeli Liyanage)

    Our confidence is shattered. How ever it appears that many other names of Yahapalanay SLFP top men too have been mentioned in the text messages. Let us wait and see. This is wheels within wheels

    People in glass houses should not throw stones. 90% of the Ministers are doing deals with the fraudsetters.

    "Very difficult to maintain credibility"? No, it is impossible.

    People's confidence was shattered way back in 2015 February and was further shattered in March 2016 with the EPF scam.lets put out all names in those texts and ask everyone to resign including that guy addressed as PM.

    Some comments here suggests that there is a race for corruption. They say, let's beat "Helping Hambanthota" with "Bond Scam".

    This is merely SLFP against UNP. But now it looks UNP is better as some of the UNPyers have opposed the behaviour of RK. But these SLFP guys have never admitted any corruption happened during their tenure other than MY3 is quoting for his survival. Anyway, we need to think about a new political culture minimising the damage to the economy and to restore the law and order. People who are willing to earn and enjoy life should be given a chance while the people who ask everything from the government should be educated.
