Anura re-appointed CMC Commissioner

V. K. A Anura was re-appointed as the Commissioner of the Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) yesterday.

He was removed from his position on March 2 by Governor K. C. Logeswaran, on the recommendations of the Presidential Commission, appointed to probe into the Meethotumulla tragedy.

The decision was taken by the Governor after receiving instructions from President Maithripala Sirisena to take appropriate action according to the report which was submitted by the Presidential Commission headed by Justice Dr. Chandradasa Nanayakkara.

President Maithripala Sirisena appointed the one-member committee on April 26, 2017 to investigate into the garbage collapse in Meethotumulla which occurred on April 14, 2017. The report revealed that the tragedy was the result of the Colombo Municipality having failed to carry out a proper method of garbage disposal and by failing to implement the recommendations in this regard.

Following his removal from the post earlier this year, the staff of the Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) including the engineers staged a protest against the removal of Anura as the Commissioner.
