Rs. 5 million damage to Ranil’s Mercedes

The damage caused to the bullet proof Mercedes Benz car allocated to Opposition UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe has been estimated at Rs. 5 million, UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake said yesterday.

He said the side windows and some of the lights had been damaged and would need to be imported from Germany. The damage caused to the Prado owned by Mr. Attanayake had been estimated at one million rupees with the vehicle’s body, windows and lights being broken.

The damage to the UNP headquarters had been estimated at around Rs. 5 million. The damaged items included computers, furniture and other office equipment. The fence around Sirikotha too had been removed along with some of the letters on the marble plaque with the name of the UNP inscribed on it.
Meanwhile lawyer Srinath Perera has been appointed to head a committee that will probe the mob attack on December 19 on the UNP headquarters.

Submissions could be made till January 7. The committee will review the video footage of the incidents and submit a report to Mr. Attanayake.“I will hand over the report to the UNP leader and he will decide on the disciplinary action to take against those who were involved in the mob attack,” Mr. Attanayake told the Sunday Times.

The UNP had already started a fund to start the repair work at Sirikotha and party supporters have begun donating towards it, the General Secretary said.
