The Sirisena-Wickeremsinghe led Yahapalanaya government have continued to remain muted regarding the alleged Namal Rajapaksa / Krrish Files that Ranil was so vocal about then. The current premier openly claimed that the reason behind ‘Sunday Leader’ Journalist Mandana Ismail Abeywickrema’s house was burgled was due to thieves breaking in to rob these files off her at gun point.
The Prime Minister then said that former government was responsible for this ‘break- in’ which was in order to hush up the commissions Namal was to receive from the US $ 650 million deal.
Prime Minister Wickremesinghe being vociferous then openly then claimed in parliament that the Abeywickrema household was burgled which left a robber killed at the premises.
The new government now into its sixth month in power, mysteriously continues to remain ‘tight lipped’.
A current Minister of the present government Dr. Harsha De Silva then wrote in a column that this ‘unsolicited deal’ be investigated, where he went on to write in a Colombo Telegraph story “It now seems that this whole project was a hoax and that Parliament was misled both by the by the investor. We demand that the massive tax breaks granted to this investor be cancelled immediately and an impartial investigation be launched in to what exactly happened. The investigation must find out who were behind this transaction and blacklist all such persons so that hereafter Parliament will not be duped by such fly-by-night operators with connections to high places”.
However the Indian owned ‘Krrish’ company developer’s CEO R.P. Gupta went on to tell a local Sunday newspaper “ The approval to the project has been done on merit and is in the interest of the development of Sri Lanka. The allegations of pay-offs or bribes are not true”.
The so called “Namal/ Krrish” files still continue to remain missing.
