All payments for the former Ministers and their personal staffs have been temporarily halted in accordance with the interim order issued by the Court of Appeal suspending the functions of the Cabinet of Ministers.
Responding to a query by Ada Derana, the Secretary to the Ministry of Public Administration J.J. Ratnasiri stated that President Maithripala Sirisena had given instructions on implementing this suspension at a recent discussion.
Accordingly, all payments including the allowances for telephones and fuel have been temporarily suspended from last week onwards.
However, this suspension would be carried out until the court order is issued, the Secretary to the Public Administration said.
