The Government Group has submitted a motion to the Speaker to appoint a Parliamentary Select Committee to investigate alleged involvement of UNP MP Jayalath Jayawardena in the protest against President Mahinda Rajapaksa in the UK.
Leader of the House Nimal Siripala de Silva and Chief Government Whip Dinesh Gunawardena handed over the motion to the Speaker this morning. Dr. Jayawardena is accused of conspiring against Sri Lanka with the Tamil Diaspora in Britain. Several Parliamentarians have already revealed information of the UNP Parliamentarian’s visit. A statement made by him instigating the Tamil civilians had also surfaced. An expatriate Tamil writer who also attended this meeting had made more revelations about the meeting via a website.
