Responding to the Colombo Telegraph story “Exposé: Centre For Policy Alternatives Defrauded And Hoodwinked Donors” the Centre for Policy Options says that it will post a response to the allegations in the next two weeks.
The CPA’s potent Executive Director, Dr Paikiasothy Saravanamuttu who is currently in London attending a conference titled ‘The media in post war Sri Lanka: supporting democratisation in the era of the ‘War on Terrorism’” organized by “The International Association of Tamil Journalists”.
The CPA web site says “The Centre for Policy Alternatives (CPA) is conscious of an report in the Colombo Telegraph website titled ‘Exposé: Centre For Policy Options Defrauded And Hoodwinked Donors’ published on ten October 2014. The article contains a number of allegations against the organisation and particular members of the employees. As the Executive Director is travelling on perform, CPA will post a response to these allegations on his return to Sri Lanka in the next two weeks.”
Alarming Colombo Telegraph on the CPA’s clarification, a Sri Lankan very good governance activist stated “if the CPA is not an authoritarian organisation, why does it require two weeks to respond? It looks like ‘Saravanamuttu is the CPA’, that is how the NGO technique operates”. “No difference to the Rajapaksas, we each day, hear: Mahinda, Mahinda, Mahinda Chinthana and so forth” she further stated.
