The Maha Vihariya Karaka Maha Sanga Council of the Malwattu Chapter has appointed Venerable Walavahangunuwawe Dhammaratana thero who was in charge of the Historic Mihintale Rajamaha Buddhist Temple as its Chief Incumbent.

Issuing a communiqué, the Chief Prelate of the Malwattu Chapter Most Venerable Thibbatuwawe Sri Sumangala thero pointed out that this appointment has been made until the examination of allegations of abuse against Venerable Namalwawe Sri Rathanasara thero who held the position of the Chief Incumbent of the Historic Mihintale Rajamaha Buddhist Temple is completed.

The Chief Prelate of the Malwattu Chapter has sent a letter to the Commissioner General of Buddhist Affairs informing this appointment.

In his letter, the Chief Prelate of the Malwattu Chapter had pointed out that this decision was taken after the Karaka Maha Sanga Council conducted an inquiry by calling Namaloye Rathanasara thero and Walavahangunuwawe Dhammaratana thero before the council.
