Politicians’ telephone conversations missing from commission report Featured

Five politicians were cited at the bond commission as having questionable telephone conversations, but the final report’s failure to mention them has become an issue.

They have now decided to complain to the president and the prime minister and ask for an investigation if that was an intentional attempt by the CID and the Attorney General’s Department to discredit them politically.

The government politicians in question are Dayasiri Jayasekara, Sujeewa Senasinghe, Ajith P. Perera, Harshana Rajakaruna and Hector Appuhamy.

According to MP Appuhamy, it would have been politically-motivated as the commission report failed to mention the telephone conversations.

He said the speaker of parliament would be asked to find out as to who gave the instruction to obtain details of the telephone conversations in question.
