Examinations Dept. Commissioner General transferred

Examinations Department Commissioner General W.M.N.J. Pushpakumara has been transferred to the Education Ministry with effect from yesterday, Education Ministry sources said.

He has been transferred to the Education Ministry to assist with the ongoing investigations into the affairs of the Examinations Department.

An investigation is being carried out over a number of examinations held earlier, the marking of papers, the preparation of question papers, the appointment of the Examination Board and safeguarding privacy related to the examinations, on the directive of Education Minister Akila Viraj Kariyawasam.

The Ministry last week suspended the services of Deputy Commissioner of Examinations who served as the Head of the Confidential and Institutional Examination Division over the allegations of neglect of duties and misconduct.

This transfer has been made by Education Ministry Secretary Sunil Hettiarachchi after taking into consideration of the recommendation of the investigation team and the request made by W.M.N.J. Pushpakumara for a transfer during the investigation.
