PM to make statement tomorrow!

Prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe will make a statement after appearing before the presidential commission investigating the bond issue tomorrow (20), a spokesman for the prime minister’s office told Sri Lanka Mirror.

The occasion will be the Business Today Top 30 and Business Today Passionate awards presentation at Shangri La Colombo Hotel in the afternoon.

Minister Akila Viraj Kariyawasam has said the PM’s voluntary appearance before the commission without any fear or suspicion signaled that democratic governance had been established in the country.

The premier could have delayed it citing an upcoming tour of India, but he has decided otherwise, said the minister.
