Colombo, Feb. 23 (Daily Mirror)- President's Secretary Saman Ekanayake has directed officials to take legal action against the unauthorized granting of national awards and honorary titles. 

He said cases where individuals and organizations wrongly present awards similar to those bestowed by the President to deserving Sri Lankans, have been observed.

Ekanayake underscored the urgency of halting this misuse to prevent grave injustice and disrespect to genuinely honoured individuals.

    Are there still people who are proud of being honored by a Sri Lankan President?

    Tissa Fernando Friday, 23 February 2024 11:52 PM

    Yes, there are many probably including you if selected for the award. We are all friends Malli.

    We are not even proud to be called a Sri Lankan now. Thanks to our politicians.

    President himself give appointments in various fields. The legal field President's Counsel who are appointed some haven't achieved the pinnacle in practice of Law to be appointed and some are appointed on other considerations

    Agreed, many charlatans pay big bucks to these dodgy institutes to get these awards, including Doctorates and Masters degrees for $$$ has to be stopped...Great injustice to the genuine ones!

    Super move. We have a water bottle vendor in the neighbourhood with a free Doctorate, the business card says Hons. Driving a duty-free V8. You must also scrap the title ' professor' in universities for people who have not done a PhD. It becomes a joke to see many getting this title based on political influences and/or after sucking up to the higher admins. When the perks also get better, they also don't work as they think they are above all, despite they don't know, they are useless and getting paid off poor taxpayers's money.

    Even the President himself has been awarded the Presidency sans any mandate or qualifications, so why should we talk about the Academy awards rewarded to students prepared by private institutions with their own will?
