I will answer to the bond commission on Aug 2: Ravi

Ravi Karunanayake

July 27, 2017 (LBO) – Sri lanka’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Ravi Karunanayake says he will answer to statements made against him when he appears before the Presidential Commission probing the Central Bank bond issue on August 2nd.

Karunanayake said that there is a secret scheming behind these activities to smear his character.

Responding to journalists at an event held to mark the National Youth Flag Day Wednesday, Minister Karunanayake said nothing has happened to those of the previous regime who destroyed this country – but a minister of our Government goes before an Independent Commission.

“This is the transparency of the rule of the good governance,” he said.

“Didn’t they know that I am a Cabinet Minister to summon me before the Commission yesterday (July 25)? I was summoned on the day where I had commitment to attend the Cabinet Meeting. Therefore I informed the Commission through my lawyers to allocate another day.”

“Two or three media houses are attempting to assassinate the character of Ravi Karunanayake for no reason. They have nothing else to show therefore are doing this kind of things. I will answer before the Commission on these matters at the correct time.”
