We have over the last few months highlighted many times the highhanded act of the SriLankan Airlines CEO Ratwatte, his lack of experience to run an airline of this magnitude and his deliberate acts to cover up his misconduct. But they continue in office unabated.
Many of the Directors of the airline have also complained to us many times about the conduct of the CEO. They tell us he is like a "bull in a china shop" . When we inquire why no action is being taken. They tell us that his elder Brother Ratwatte who destroyed the UNP singlehandedly in 2004, is now back to do the same thing. They also tell us they are helpless because the Prime Minister listens to him more than the to the Board and when the CEO is challenged, he says we are following orders from the PM? The CEO had also recently told some pilots " you can't touch me, the PM is in my Brother's pocket". "How are we to check these stories, if true or not from the PM" and "Suren is a thick skinned guy" a director told us. The Prime Minister is sitting on a time bomb, if he does not act, the President will, and if the President does not, the Srilankan Trade Unions will. They are now planning to rise up like the GMOA against the CEO. The CEO will anyway be history if the unions agitate, the likes of Dr Rajitha Senarathne, General Fonseka and Champaka Ranawaka will certainly force him out, they have had enough with him.
