Hemal Gunasekara Now Says He Can't Remember The "Forged" Number Plate

Responding to the revelation made by the Police that Deputy Minister Hemal Gunasekera's vehicle had a forged number plate, the Deputy Minister had said he could not remember anything about the number plate of his vehicle! 

"I didn't see the number plate of the vehicle. I don't even remember it... It is not my business either. It's not important whether my vehicle had a forged number plate or not. First of all, we need to find out who set fire on the Police Constable's vehicle," The Deputy Minister had said when a journalist questioned about the matter. 

The Deputy Minister had said he was not worried about the number plate of the vehicle as the vehicle was given to him by his ministry. If the Minister's statement is something to go by, a serious allegation can be raised against the Ministry of Internal Trade and Cooperatives, headed by Minister Johnston Fernando. Ministries or any other government institution cannot use unregistered vehicles. 

The Deputy Minister had angrily asked the journalist to asked about this matter from his ministry. He had hung up the call, saying, "bloody journalists! Don't they have something better to do?" ("munta wena weda nedda manda!")

However, the Police has already sought the Attorney General's advice on the forged number plate of the Deputy Minister's vehicle
