Speaking exclusively to News1st on Wednesday, Former Sri Lankan Representative to the UN in Geneva Ambassador Tamara Kunanayakam alleged that a contract to renovate the official residence of the Sri Lankan Permanent Representative in Geneva had been awarded to an organisation affiliated  with the LTTE.

She states that when she took over the post of SL Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva she called for an audit into the renovation work, adding that the report was handed over to MP Sajin Vaas who is the Monitoring MP for the Ministry of External Affairs ..

Reacting to these allegations MP Sajin Vaas noted that an ambassador has the right to hand over contracts with regard to such matters as long as it is within the state regulations.

He denied that such an audit report was handed over to him and stated that he has no knowledge about the existence of such a report.

The parliamentarian went on to note that he does not look into establishment matters and also questioned whether people who waged a war against the LTTE would grant contracts to them .
