President's Allies Deny Reports Actress Gihani Weerasinghe Was A Member Of President's Delegation To London

Colombo, 24 April,(Asiantribune.com):

The President's Media Unit yesterday denied claims that President Maithripala Sirisena's delegation to London consisted of 120 members.

Issuing a statement, the PMU said apart from President Sirisena and his wife, the official delegation consisted of several Cabinet Ministers including Ministers Thilak Marapana, Nimal Siripala de Silva, the President's personal physician and the President's official translator.

In addition to that, it said, some members of the President's media team and group of journalists representing state and private media stations were also taken to London.

It was announced that, the Minister of Industries and Trade Rishard Badurdeen and Minister of Finance Mangala Samaraweera attended the Business Forum and that it is informed that the Presidential Secretariat has not met expenses for any of the parties attended the Business Forum.

Thus, we reject certain media reports that alleged that more than hundred delegates accompanied the President in this tour.
