Azath Salley involved in transferring Colombo Municipal Commissioner: Ven. Rathana Thera
Posted on May 29th, 2019


Parliamentarian Ven. Athuraliye Rathana Thera alleged that the transfer of Colombo Municipal Commissioner V.K.A. Anura took place due to the intervention of Western Province Governor, Azath Salley.

Addressing the Media in Rajagiriya today (29), he claimed that Anura has been told by Salley to extend the deadlines of tenders to operate meat shops in Colombo, even though deadlines have expired. Salley had sent a letter to Anura with regard to the extension of tenders and the latter had in turn replied to Salley saying that the extensions could not be done, and that such is against the due tender procedure,” he further alleged.

He also claimed that Anura had been advised to do the same on a number of occasions by Salley.  

Anura too was present at the Media briefing, but did not make any statements, saying that he has been told not to make any statements regarding the transfer for legal reasons.
