75 yr. chairman at CPC

Ceylon Petroleum Corporation chairman T.G. Jaysinghe, aged 75 years, remains in the job although a head of a state corporation cannot do so after reaching 60 years of age.

He celebrated his 75th birthday recently, reports say.

Jayasinghe has the support of the petroleum minister to remain as the chairman, despite recommendations to the contrary by COPE and COPA.
