Oct 08, 2008 (LBO) – Sri Lanka's former Treasury Secretary P B Jayasundera was ordered to assure Supreme Court that he would not remain in public service following an apology for having remained in public office after a judgment, lawyers said.
Though Jayasundera resigned shortly after the original court order which reversed a land transfer and a tax holiday given to the bunkering firm Lanka Marine Services when it was sold to John Keells Holdings, his resignation was not immediately accepted.

The resignation was later accepted, following a second court order on a motion filed by the original petitioner, leftist politician Vasudeva Nanayakkara.

Chief Justice Sarath Silva then ordered Jayasundera to be present in court amidst reports that he was working as an advisor to the president.

On Wednesday Jayasundera was told to submit an affidavit assuring Supreme Court that he was severing all ties with public service, lawyers said.
