The COPE Committee orders to appoint a Managing Director for Litro immediately

The COPE Committee today (20) directed the government to immediately appoint a Managing Director to Litro Gas Company.

Following a request made by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to summon the officials of the Litro Gas Company to appear before the COPE Committee at 11.00 am today, all the top officials of the COPE Committee had been summoned to appear before the Committee.

All the details of the company’s activities were discussed at the meeting and it was revealed that the Chairman of the Litro Gas Company, Engineer Vijitha Herath, has also been appointed as the Managing Director of the company.

Vijitha Herath is also the Chairman of Sri Lanka Insurance Company, the largest shareholder in Litro, and is officially the Chairman of Litro. In addition, he is currently the Managing Director of Litro Gas and has encountered practical problems.

Due to a large number of duties, Vijitha Herath faces practical difficulties of operating a litro gas and as a result, it is often too late to make the necessary decisions.

Accordingly, COPE Chairman Prof. Charitha Herath today directed the government to appoint an independent person with knowledge of its function to the post of Managing Director of Litro Gas as soon as possible.
