Duminda calls for independent investigation, laments damage to his reputation

Minister Duminda Dissanayake yesterday called for an independent investigation into the alleged fraudulent money transfer to a bank account belonging to a Government Minister. 

The Minister lamented damage to his good name as it has been suggested that a sum of Rs. 150 million had been transferred to his account.  “My image, although blurred, has been used by different websites which have published the story. No one will come to rectify the damage to my reputation so I, too, urge authorities to conduct a proper investigation into the matter,” he said, speaking to reporters yesterday. 

The Minister also said that the entire Government should not be held responsible for the misconduct of one Minister, highlighting that an independent system has been set up by the current administration to deal with such frauds. 

“No one is above the law now. There is a system in place to carry out independent investigations and bring wrongdoers to book,” he said.
