and Exchange Commission rages on, its director general Dr.
Dayanath Jayasuriya seems to enjoy a word with Finance Minister
K.N. Choksy last Thursday at the ceremonial launch of the
Asia-Pacific market regulators meeting. Choksy has not accepted
the resignation submitted by Jayasuriya after he was gagged
following revelations that the SEC was probing insider dealing
allegations against its own chairman Michael Mack. The acting
chairman of the SEC, Nihal Jinasena, whose role itself has
been criticised over doubts about the validity of his appointment,
(inset) was also present. Pic. by J.Weerasekera.
