Former Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) Director General Anusha Palpita has been removed from the post of additional secretary to the Ministry of Home Affairs following pressure against his appointment.
The Government was slammed for appointing Palpita as a Ministry Additional Secretary.
The Campaign for Free and Fair Elections (CaFFE) had said Palpita’s appointment was a “shameful” act as he was previously accused of being involved in corruption when Mahinda Rajapaksa was in power.
Palpita was accused of being involved in the misappropriation of Rs. 600 million belonging to the TRC during the last presidential election campaign. (Colombo Gazette)
