The appointment of Upul Jayasuriya as the Chairman of the Board of Investments has been heavily criticised by many who have pointed out that it could results in issues regarding conflict of interest while pointing out that the acceptance of the position by him, is unethical.
Jayasuriya who is the outgoing Chairman of the Bar Association of Sri Lanka, was appointed as the BOI Chairman few days ago by President Maithripala Sirisena. However, this appointment has raised questions as concerns have arisen as to where his interests would lie since he is also a presently practicing senior commercial lawyer.
Jaysuriya was appointed as the BASL Chairman during the Rajapaksa regime, one of the most challenging periods for legal practitioners.
