Colombo (News 1st); BRANDIX issuing another official statement on Wednesday (07) said no parties from India or any other country had access to the Minuwangoda facility.
“We operated three chartered flights from Visakhapatnam, India for our Sri Lankan employees working in India and their families, who returned to Sri Lanka. We confirm that they, including their families, followed the Sri Lanka Government protocol for the prevention and control of COVID-19, which includes PCR testing and a 14-day mandatory quarantine at a government-regulated quarantine facility, as well as the 14-day self-quarantine process done under the supervision of the respective PHIs,” said Brandix.
The statement further added none of these Sri Lankans nor their family members visited the Minuwangoda manufacturing facility.
The statement was issued after social media reports suggested a group of Indians arrived at the Mattala Airport from Visakhapatnam, India on the 22nd of September aboard flight UL 1159, chartered by Brandix.
These reports also claimed the group of individuals had visited the Brandix Minuwangoda manufacturing facility.
Commenting on these claims, Sri Lanka’s Army Chief and Head of the COVID-19 Task Force Lt. Gen. Shavendra Silva said such a group of Indians never arrived in Sri Lanka.
He said the Sri Lankans who returned from Indian underwent proper quarantine and the final batch concluded the mandatory quarantine process on Tuesday (06).
The Army Commander said this group is not in any way linked to these events and further details would be made available in the future.
