‘MP Sagala, no longer works for PMO’

The Office of the Prime Minister (PMO) releasing a statement yesterday stressed that UNP MP Sagala Ratnayaka no longer works for the PMO and that he could not use the official letterhead or pose as the Chief of Staff to the PM in any official capacity.

Media Secretary to the Prime Minister, Rohan Welivita in the statement noted that the UNP MP on 2018.11.01, had issued a statement using the official letterhead of the PMO but given that he no longer holds his previous position, the PMO does not endorse its contents and rejected his statement as misinformation.

“Sagala Ratnayaka has no connection to the Office of the Prime Minister or the Prime Minister”.

As the Head of State, President Maithripala Sirisena has appointed Mahinda Rajapaksa as the Prime Minister of the country. Similarly, it is the President who also appointed the new Secretary to the Prime Minister, it noted further.

“The use of the PMO letterhead and Ratnayaka posing off as Chief of Staff of the PMO, is an illegal activity and has no validity and we would like to clarify that no officer by the name of Sagala Ratnayaka works in the Office of the Prime Minister,” the statement further added.
