PM before Presidential Commission on Corruption on Sept. 16

The date for Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe appearance before the Presidential Commission probing allegations of corruption against the present government has been rescheduled for September 16th, Commission sources told the Daily News yesterday.

The Prime Minister will now be appearing before the Presidential Commission next Monday at 9.30 a.m.

The Prime Minister was, originally, to appear before the Commission today (12th).

 The Presidential Commission on Tuesday September 10th issued summons on Prime Minister Wickremesinghe to appear before the Commission on September 12 to obtain a statement about the lease of the D.P.A. Jayasinghe Building which houses the Agriculture Ministry.

“The re-scheduling was done upon a written communication by the Premier’s office which informed the Commission that Prime Minister Wickremesinghe was to participate in a pre-scheduled event in Mannar today (12),” Commission sources said.

The Commission is, also, to obtain a statement from the Prime Minister about the Cabinet Paper he submitted on September 21, 2015, to take over the “Govijana Mandiraya” building, which housed the Agriculture Ministry, for Parliamentary Committees, a statement issued by the Commission on Tuesday (10) said.
