The Samagi Jana Balawegaya charges that the government has violated regulations when appointing members to the Board of Investments.
Leader of the Opposition MP Sajith Premadasa speaking during an event yesterday said appointments have been awarded with contracts stating large sums in salaries will be provided.
MP Premadasa said many people are suspicious of the prorogation of Parliament claiming the government sought to disrupt and halt the progress of Parliament committees.
MP Premadasa said decisions by the Board of Investment were questioned, while investigations were launched into certain activities.
He revealed that almost seven high level individuals have been appointed to the BOI by violating circulars and recruitment policies, by providing high salaries and allowances.
MP Premadasa added the Committee on Public Enterprises questioned the BOI appointments and spending of taxpayer money, and if they reached investment targets.
However, the Opposition leader said the Directors and Chairman of the BOI disliked the questioning, and threatened to resign.
