Kiriella has issues about certain Committees
Chief Opposition Whip Lakshman Kiriella yesterday said in Parliament that Opposition members are unfairly targetted at certain Committees by raising issues without following due legal process.
He said that he will make a complaint to the Speaker in connection with this situation. Parliamentarian Lakshman Kiriella drew the attention of the Deputy Speaker in this regard.
“Every Committee has its own limits. But some Committees are going beyond the legal purviews and raising issues. If COPE wants to conduct an inquiry, an Audit Inquiry should be conducted first,” he said. The Deputy Speaker said that he will draw the attention of the Speaker regarding this matter.
