13 fmr. ministers to be sued Featured

The Ministry of Public Administration, Home Affairs, Provincial Councils and Local Government has sought legal redress against 13 former ministers.

A ministry official told 'Sri Lanka Mirror' that legal action will be taken against these former ministers  who are yet to handover their official residencies, despite losing their ministerial portfolios three months ago.

Although these former ministers were informed to return their residencies before Feb. 20, only a handful of them had done so, reports say.

Therefore, issues have prevailed when over providing official residencies to present ministers, sources from the ministry add.
