Sunil Handunnetti

Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) MP Sunil Handunnetti said today a forensic audit should be carried out through a Parliament Select Committee on the Central Expressway.

He told parliament that a forensic audit would reveal the truth behind the awarding of tenders for the Central Expressway.

Speaking at the adjournment debate on the Central Expressway, Mr. Handunnetti said the fraud and corruption on the Central Expressway may surpass the Central Bank Bond scam.

Japanese firm withdraws from third stage construction of the Expressway

The Japanese firm which was to be given the contract to carry out the third stage of the Central Expressway is said to have withdrawn, thus compelling the government to search for another construction company.

The expressway is to be constructed in three stages with the contract for the first stage from Kadawata to Mirigama awarded to a Chinese company and the second stage to Kurunegala via Potuhera awarded to a local contractor.

Under the third stage, the expressway will stretch from Potuhera to Kandy.
