Indian fertiliser import allegations: Secretary to President warns legal action
Secretary to the President, Dr. P.B. Jayasundera vehemently denied reports carried by certain media outlets targeting him by citing a statement made by an Opposition MP in Parliament regarding the opening of a personal account in a State bank to import fertiliser from India.
The President’s Media Division said: These news stories are completely false and malicious. The opening of an account in a State bank is an act between the relevant bank and the account holder. It is the responsibility of the bank to act in accordance with the standard procedures in this regard. Dr Jayasundera stated that stern legal action has already been taken against the statements targeting him, in a statement made by the opposition MP.
