Special cabinet meeting on Avant Garde next week

Maithripala SirisenaA special cabinet meeting will be held on Avant Garde next week, President Maithripala Sirisena said today.

When cabinet met yesterday the issue had been discussed and a special cabinet meeting will be held next week to discuss the issue in full.

The Government was this week accused of deceit in its probe on fraud and corruption, including in several high profile cases.

Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake, in an adjournment motion debate, told Parliament that the Government gave the impression to the public it was fighting corruption but was really doing the opposite.

Dissanayake said that even investigations into the Avant Garde floating armory has not progressed as far as one expected.

He claimed that the chairman of Avant Garde, Nissanka Senadhipathi has met some members of the Government, raising suspicion of a hidden deal.

The JVP leader said that Senadhipathi had also sought a meeting with him but he refused to meet him. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. In addition to the blatant dictatorial behavior of Marapana an ex A.G defending Avant Garde it is disgracefull that Ranil as prime minister, and of late tolerates a whole lot of dirty nepotistic behavior among his Ministers.Will you please tell us on what basis you appointed Arjuna Ranatunga to be Minister of the Ports Authourity? Is it his expertise? This guy is ok with a cricket bat but has not even passed his A levels. Then appoints his brother an equally unqualified man to head the ports Authority.Dont you have any conscience Ranil?The Ports are the life blood that bring in the finances thru trade, Exports and imports and custom duties etc. So you have as Minister in your Cabinet a fellow who knows next to nothing about his portfolio.It is like the blind leading the blind.And you and Sirisena keep pontificating about your Yahapalanaya
    If you have any decency just answer this Post. Over hundreds of voters have expressed their disgust thru the Colombo Telegraph re your performance in the Arjuna affair. Don’t assume we are going to take this bullshit from you guys anymore.Clean up your Cabinet and don’t play dirty politics. We want educated decent men and women with high Moral principles running our Country.
