JO, UNP inquire into businesses of Maithri’s family!

Ex-minister Basil Rajapaksa has advised several joint opposition MPs to inquire into family businesses of president Maithripala Sirisena and report back to him, political sources say.

He also told them to look into how state resources were used at the
launch of ‘Janadhipathi Thatha’, a book written by the president’s eldest daughter Chaturika.

The sources also said the president had summoned a young UNP MP over speculation that he and several other party backbenchers were gathering information about the president’s family businesses.
