Secretary to the Education Ministry Nihal Ranasinghe stated before the Presidential Commission of inquiry appointed to investigate into the acts of corruption & frauds occurred in State institutions that the transfer of the Education Ministry's Director of Supplies K. Illangasinghe has been cancelled and he has been reinstated in his previous position.

He stated this when he was giving evidence before the commission yesterday.

The Commission had earlier given orders to reinstate him in his previous position.

The transfer was made after I.B.C.K. Illangasinghe former commissioner of the publications department had given evidence before the Presidential Commission of Inquiry regarding the additional cost incurred in publishing the colour photograph of the Minister of Education in the school books.

This transfer letter was given on the 24th of July with the signature of the Secretary to the Ministry of Education Nihal Ranasinghe.

The Presidential Commission of Inquiry, which conducted an inquiry into the transfer, had asked the Education Secretary to cancel it as there was no justifiable reason for the transfer.

Meanwhile, a team of police officers attached to the police unit of the Presidential commission and four government valuation department officers arrived at Mattala International Airport this morning, to investigate a complaint received by the Commission regarding storage of paddy in one of the airport terminals.

In response to a query by the Hiru news team, a commission spokesperson stated that the paddy storage has been inspected and valuation has commenced.
