Accordingly, former Director General Leonard Ravindra Mark and former Deputy Manager M.A Nishantha of Disaster Management Center have submitted the aforesaid petition to the Court of Appeal.

Justice Preethi Padman Surasena and other members of the Presidential Commission of Inquiry into Serious Acts of Fraud and Corruption have been named as the respondents of the petition.

The petitioners stated that the Presidential Commission of Inquiry has issued a recommendation against them for allegedly causing a loss to the state by offering a tender to build Tsunami warning towers during the administration of the past government.
