Pathirana cleared of all charges

By Rasika Jayakody

The UNP Disciplinary Committee has informed MP Buddhika Pathirana that it would recommend the party’s Working Committee to restore his party membership.

He was summoned before the Disciplinary Committee of the Party Thursday evening.

During the inquiry, Pathirana has stated that he has not violated party discipline by supporting an independent group during the local government election period.

He said false allegations were levelled against him, as a result of a sinister move against his political career.

Following Pathirana’s statement, however, the Disciplinary Committee headed by President’s Counsel Thilak Marapana has decided to exonerate Pathirana from all the charges.

The Committee has informed Pathirana it would recommend the WC to restore his membership, which was suspended by the party following disciplinary charges, a few months ago.

According to the party constitution, only the Working Committee has the authority to restore Pathirana’s party membership.

The date of the next Working Committee meeting is not yet decided, UNP sources told Ceylon Today. (Ceylon Today Online)
