Nepotism Grows: Hirunika’s Aunt Appointed As Sri Lanka’s Consul In Los Angeles

The Sirisena-Wickremesinghe regime’s policy of helping friends and family appears to have spread to the Foreign Ministry with career diplomats being overlooked in favour of loyalists and their kin.

Swarna Pushpa Kanthi Gunaratne, sister of Hirunika Premachandra‘s late father Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra has been appointed as Sri Lanka’s consul in Los Angeles, USA. She had never held a diplomatic post before or had any career training or experience in the diplomatic service.
