The United States embassy yesterday dismissed as “baseless” allegations it attempted to bribe a minister.
Resettlement Minister Gunaratne last Thursday while speaking at a public meeting in Aranwelevea said the outgoing US Ambassador Michele Sison had offered him a Green Card and a house in the US.
“The allegations by Minister Gunaratne Weerakoon are baseless” said the US embassy.
It is not clear if the allegations will be investigated as in the case of Naveen Dissanayaka.
The UNP has pointed out that only allegations of bribery made by opposition politicians are been investigated while allegations made by government party politicians such as luxman Senaviratna and Wimal Weeravansa have not been investigated.
