Petition Against Pensions

Jul 6, 2011 9:48:24 AM - thesundayleader.lk

A civil society group has today presented a petition to the Court of Appeal against the granting of pensions to persons living overseas without a dual citizenship.

The petition has noted that while over 12,000 persons residing overseas received pensions, the government spends Rs. 3.5 billion annually to pay pensions.

The petition has been filed by Ven. Battaramulle Seelaratane Thero from the Janasetha Foundation.
