Leader of the Opposition Sajith Premadasa has called for the truth behind the disappearance of data of the National Medicines Regulatory Authority to be revealed.
Issuing a statement the Opposition Leader said over two months have lapsed since the NMRA data stored in the database was erased.
MP Premadasa said the missing data is public property that contains sensitive information that affects national security. He claimed the government remains laidback regarding this issue.
The Opposition Leader said while investigations are underway, persons responsible for the incident have not been revealed thus far.
MP Premadasa claimed at a time that such a destruction has taken place, only an individual or group that benefited from the missing data can follow a relaxed approach.
Meanwhile MP Premadasa stressed the engineer allegedly responsible for the data being erased should be revealed, while an impartial, transparent and independent investigation must be conducted to determine who’s agenda he acted upon.
