By Ifham Nizam
The Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) General Manager Shavindranth Fernando has come under fire for signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) as regards the Norochcholai coal-fired power plant with China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC) without the Power and Energy Ministry approval.
Ministry Secretary, and senior civil servant, M. M. C. Ferdinando, contacted for comment, said the MoU had been signed without his approval. When a formal agreement between the two governments was signed, they would take up the matter with the General Manager, he added.
