UPFA MP Anura Priyadharshana Yapa is being questioned by the Police Special Investigations Unit (SIU) in connection with the Rs 35 million in losses incurred by the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC), during his tenure as Minister of Petroleum Industries.

The government had incurred the losses as a result of the small ship hired from the Luna Shipping Company to carry out ship-to-ship transfer of fuel after a buoy was damaged near the unloading facility by a ship supplying fuel to the CPC last year.

Yapa, who is the General Secretary of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP), was summoned to the SIU at around 10.30am this morning to record a statement regarding the losses, police said.
