MP Gunawardena’s accusation of a fellow MP is at odds with the factual record

Relevant Hansard extracts (see Exhibits 1 and 2) show that MP Gunawardena was wrong on two counts – on the report and on the language of translation.

Report: MP Sumanthiran did not raise any issue with the Bond Commission Report; he only raised an issue with the PRECIFAC report being provided exclusively in Sinhala. 


Language of translation: MP Sumanthiran did not insist on Sinhala and Tamil translation of the PRECIFAC report (which is in Sinhala), but on either an English or a Tamil translation.


Since MP Gunawardena makes an accusation that is at odds with the record, we classified his statement as BLATANTLY FALSE.

This is an extract from a fact check published on @factchecklka Facebook page on November 14, 2019 (factcheck.lk). For the extended write-upplease see: www.factcheck.lk.

    This guy is a waste of space. Sill playing MR politics and think that he vastly intelligent voting masses of present Sri Lanka will fall for him. Sooner these guys disappear to political wilderness better for the young Sri Lankans to rise.
