Ravi Karunanayake gets a Ministry despite concerns

Former Minister Ravi Karunanayake was appointed a Minister in the new cabinet despite concerns raised by civil society.

Karunanayake was appointed as the new Minister of Power and Energy and Enterprise Development today.

Karunanayake had been accused in the Central Bank treasury bond scam and had been removed earlier from the Finance Minister post.

He also resigned from the post of Foreign Minister as a result of the allegations against him and was not considered for a post since then.
