Former MP Rosy Senanayake yesterday said that she had never given out any information or documents to any party while she was a member of the Committee on Public Enterprises (COPE).
She said that it was a total misrepresentation by the media of a recorded conversation by two parties that had no substance. She said she would take necessary action against such media organisations which used it to cast aspersions on her character and integrity.
She said: “Whilst the media continuously reported on COPE proceeding at the time, I have at not at any time given out information with regard to the proceeding in any form. The recorded conversation took place in August 2016 by at which time I was not a member of COPE nor was I a member of parliament.
Therefore my son has no access whatsoever to such information and he has not been requested to provide any such information nor would he have accepted such a request by any party.
“Any person reading the media reports can clearly see that they are using this third party conversation as a headline grabber whereas there is zero substance in the details. I am deeply saddened by this undeserved attack and will do all that is necessary to keep the public informed of the reality of the situation.
