While claiming that his son is not alcoholic, Media Minister Keheliya Rambukwella had said that he had sought the British Airways report to get his son's name cleared regarding the incident on a British Airways flight.
Minister Rambukwella said, "I have sought the report from the airlines. As far as I know, there is nothing abnormal in the airlines report. My son is not alcoholic. Only to sensationalize the issue, the media has made it a issue".
"The cabin door and the lavatory toilet were hardly few feet away and my son mistakenly tried to open the door. The pressurized cabin door is not openable".
"It is not the first time my son has traveled in the aircraft. He has been to many countries with the Sri Lankan team and he knows the etiquette and how to behave in the aircraft". (Bipini Dani)
