Why President & Marapana were never together in London?

While President Maithripala Sirisena & Foreign Minister Thilak Marapana officially represented Sri Lanka at the recently concluded CHOGM, they were never publicly seen together during their stay in London. 

Lanka NewsWeb reliably learns that it is because the President Sirisena is angry with Minister Marapana, a President's Counsel & a former Attorney General of Sri Lanka, as he was involved in drafting an impeachment motion against the President.

As the then Attorney General, Mr. Marapana played an active role against the impeachment motion brought against former President R. Premadasa.

When he learnt about the move by the UNP, the President has decided to prorogue the parliament before leaving for London to attend the CHOGM.

As a result, those who planned the impeachment against the President had to withdraw their plans, at least for now.
