COLOMBO (Daily Mirror)- While highlighting that Committee on Public Enterprises (COPE) Chairman Professor Ranjith Bandara's son's presence at the last meeting of the committee was wrong, Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena assured that the matter will be probed into.

"It is wrong if the COPE Chairman's son Kanishka Bandara participated in the committee meeting on Tuesday. It has been informed that he has come in the capacity of Professor Bandara's media officer. A probe will be conducted into the matter anyway," the Speaker said in response to questions raised by Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa and other opposition members.

MP Premadasa alleged that the COPE chief has engaged in a conflict of interest by not revealing his connections to Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC).

    Foreign Minister's disease is spreading. Hail Lanka. How come unknown people participating in these meetings? Can we too come as a friend? Everything stinks from head to toe

    Oh, what is wrong with that? Sri Lanka is a Feudal Capitalism (WADWASAM DHANAWADAYA). Minority extracts the resources to their benefit at the expense of the majority. It is a patriarchal system that passes power from father to son.

    Absolutely correct. In the same way- subversives children can take over power by convincing our foolish voters! Totally agree, spot on. We now need to live like very basic people- hand in mouth! Can remember 87-90 like yesterday

    SLC tentacles are far and wide. First the judiciary, then a Police DIG and now an MP appear on the scene . And in the new case by Sports Minister, already 3 judges have recused themselves.

    These are minor issues the oppersition wants to blow up. But Every body knows Ranith Bandara is a big crook who works for Basil.

    This is what happens when ugly people breed.

    Sajith is a mass murderers son.

    Shalani Tharaka Thursday, 16 November 2023 01:31 PM

    Shame, uncle Jayantha Dharmadasa could have done better.

    L Jaya Thursday, 16 November 2023 01:46 PM

    It appears that without the knowledge of Speaker, the secretary general has given the OK for his son to sit in CoPE. She is a Rajapaksa friend. That a shame.

    The nation of retarded politicians Thursday, 16 November 2023 02:09 PM

    If the foreign military minister can tag his son along to a UN general assembly, why can't this guy? Furthermore, the president takes his boys friend on all his official visits.

    Namal's Nepotism Thursday, 16 November 2023 02:29 PM

    These all because of Namal's interference. He wants to protect this cricket board because of Jerome Jayaratna, his uncle who is in the board. To protect Titayana's interests, dirty nepotism, never again any Rajapaksha ever, bring the election soon.

    Cricket Board, King of Sri Lanka Thursday, 16 November 2023 02:42 PM

    Don't take this lightly,this is a very very serious matter.Cricket board's cash grip has spread to AG dept, Judges, DIGs, Army units, MPs, Ministers, Presidential Office

    Joseph Thursday, 16 November 2023 03:09 PM

    Inst the Chairman a PhD holder ? Shame that he does not know about conflict of interest and protocol

    Rahul dot lk Thursday, 16 November 2023 03:14 PM

    Always there are matters in a matter when probing, reconciling or elimininating who were caught. Whole mechanism is corrupt and punishable under any jurisdiction. FAMILY MEMBERS AND LODGE FELLOWS ONLY.

    Maria Thursday, 16 November 2023 03:21 PM

    Sack Bandara immediately

    ANNECUNT Thursday, 16 November 2023 07:38 PM

    Nimal Friday, 17 November 2023 06:41 AM

    What very low levels of ethics these scoundrels have gone to? Besides, has any action bee taken so far regarding the mass scale corruption that has been revealed at the sittings of this commission.
