Former UPFA General Secretary and Minister Susil Premajayantha today arrived at the Presidential Commission of Inquiry (CoI) into large scale corruption and fraud to give a statement.

The Minister of Technology, Technical Education and Employment was summoned to give a statement regarding allegations of Rs 115 million owed to a state media institution for broadcasting adverts during the last Presidential Election. 

The Secretary of the Commission Lesil de Silva stated that several other individuals including officials were also summoned today in addition to the minister to give statements on the incident. 

The Commission of Inquiry had also recorded a statement from former President Mahinda Rajapaksa at his residence in Mirihana on September 23 regarding the allegations.

 The Kurunegala District MP had reportedly informed the officials of the CoI that advertising during the presidential election was handled by the party and that the Secretary of the party should be questioned on the subject. 

Premajayantha served as the General Secretary of the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) during the presidential poll.
