President Maithripala Sirisena, who is currently in New York for the the 72nd Regular Session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA 72) has been accompanied by his wife Jayanthi, son Daham and daughters Chathurika and Dharani Colombo Telegraph reliably learns.
Two yeas ago Daham Sirisena was spotted attending the UNGA sessions and seated with the Sri Lanka delegation raising eyebrows and causing much embarrassment to the President.
This year, however, the President’s wife and elder daughter Chathurika, although seen at the UN Headquarters, have not been spotted attending the sessions. Daham, is in New York, according to sources, but has not been seen as yet at the UN. Although the President’s younger daughter Dharani has not been in the public eye as much as her controversial siblings, she is also in New York, a foreign ministry source told Colombo Telegraph.
