Order to remove minister’s brother without O/L qualifications Featured

President Maithripala Sirisena has instructed the immediate removal of a chairman of state corporation who is taking the institution to ruin amidst allegations that he is without even the GCE ordinary level qualifications.

The instruction to the subject minister, whose brother is the chairman in question, has come following several complaints against him.

The parliamentary committee on top state positions is yet to sanction his appointment, made nearly a year ago, and the payment of his salary has become problematic.

Just last month, a luxury car worth around Rs. 20 million was imported for his use.
