Sri Lanka bought tickets for the ongoing Olympic Games in London to the tune of Rs. 7 million, but who got the tickets is a mystery.
The Sunday Times learns that the National Olympic Committee had given complimentary tickets to more than 30 people.
But there were hardly any Sri Lankans on the stands, when Lankans were competing.
However NOC President Hemasiri Fernando said Sri Lanka purchased tickets to the value of Rs. 7 million and had “sold” the tickets.
On Friday, he said he was looking for the file to get the names, but yesterday also he said the information was not available.
Mr. Fernando said he could not remember the number of tickets purchased.
