By Upatissa Perera
The Executive Director of the Consumer Affairs Authority (CAA) Thushan Gunawardena has stepped down from his post. According to sources, Gunawardena is expected to hand over his resignation to State Minister of Consumer Protection, Lasantha Alagiyawanna, today (21).
He took the decision citing the mounting pressure that followed after taking a stand against irregularities that were taking place and refusing to sign certain agreements that were not in keeping with policy.
