An investment fraud is alleged in a project under which the government is making fresh attempts to hand over 62,500 acres of forest reserve and Mahaweli Authority-owned land in Uva-Wellassa for sugarcane cultivation that had earlier been rejected as a failed and non-viable project. During the previous Rajapaksa regime, the plan was made to give the land to a US multinational company through its Singaporean affiliate, but the secretary to the subject ministry had disproved of it. Also, people of Uva-Wellassa, environmentalists and civil society organizations opposed the project.
