COLOMBO (News 1st); Sri Lanka must secure maximum compensation from the X-Press Pearl container ship owners, said Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa on Monday (12).

Premadasa was invited to attend a meeting between all stakeholders working on the X-Press Pearl disaster following which he made these remarks.

‘We have forwarded multiple proposals for this purpose,’ he told reporters.

He said the opposition will take all necessary measures against the international insurance mafia if any attempt is made to curtail the compensation due to the country following the worst marine disaster to take place in Sri Lankan waters.

‘I will not divulge the proposals we discussed because they will be used against us by the owners of the vessel and the international insurance mafia,’ he said.
