The General Secretary of the Sri Lanka UNESCO Commission, Premalal Rathnaweera says that those who are in favour of removing the Galle International Cricket Stadium are those who were engaging in playing football during the period when the stadium was a public ground.

However, he added that in the communique issued by UNESCO with regard to the Galle Stadium, there has been no recommendation on abolishing the stadium.

Meanwhile, participating in the Hiru TV Salakuna political programme yesterday, Sports Minister Faizser Mustapha noted that he possesses all documentation which could prove that the construction of the Galle international cricket stadium is legal.

If the UNESCO, the National UNESCO commission and certain government Ministers are not in favour of abolishing the stadium as they state, isn’t it a question as to who has the dire need of abolishing the Galle International Cricket Stadium?
