The Government will not endorse the comments made by the Director General of Sri Lanka Standards Institute (SLSI), Cabinet Spokesman- Mass Media Minister Keheliya Rambukwella said yesterday.  

He was referring to  comments made by Dr. Siddika Senaratne during a TV talk show with regard to the contaminated coconut oil imported by  three importers.
Responding to the media, during yesterday’s weekly Cabinet news briefing, Minister Rambukwella said that an inquiry had already been launched to probe and report on the controversial remarks made and that she will be removed from her post if the committee found her remarks inappropriate and against the Government’s policy.   


“We are totally against what she had allegedly said. The government will take a decision on her after the inquiry and a discussion,” he said.
