* Sri Lanka main opposition calls on government to pay Golden Key depositors
Thu, Feb 7, 2013, 07:34 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 07, Colombo: Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) called on the government to pay the monies due to the depositors of collapsed Golden Key Company.

UNP parliamentarian Lakshman Kiriella has said the government had failed to implement a Central Bank report, which called for the closure of the Golden key Company in 2005, but the government had not implemented the request.

He has noted that the Golden Key investors would not have lost their monies if the government had acted according to the Central Bank proposal.

The MP stressed that the government should therefore take the responsibility of the Golden key depositors and take measures to pay them their monies.

At a meeting with the Golden Key depositors, President Mahinda Rajapaksa has instructed relevant authorities to initiate a programme to provide justice to the wronged Golden Key depositors.
