Heads of state bodies with dual citizenship in trouble!

PAFFREL has sent a letter to speaker Karu Jayasuriya, explaining further about persons holding dual citizenships, in the backdrop of the courts having upheld the decision against Gita Kumarasinghe that such persons cannot hold MP positions.


The speaker is expected to order that such persons be investigated.

They will include Sri Lanka Telecom CEO Dileepa Wijesundara, NSB chairman Ashvin de Silva and Litro Gas ex-chairman Shalila Munasinghe.

Wijesundara returned from Canada on 09 January 2015, expecting the Ports Authority chairmanship had Mangala Samaraweera been given the ports ministry. But, Samaraweera received foreign affairs and Wijesundara became the CEO of SLT which was under him.
