Colombo District MP for UPFA and Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU) General Secretary Udaya Gammanpila has requested the Controller of Immigration and Emigration to furnish the details with regard to parliamentarians who held dual citizenship.

He had attached a list of MPP in his letter to the Controller asking whether any of them were dual citizens as at August 17, 2015.

Mr. Gammanpila states that applicant has to mention whether he is a dual citizen when applying for passports.

Mr. Gammanpila also stated that the people had a right to know whether there were any MPP who were disqualified from holding that title.

He has made this request on the Right to Information (RTI) Act.  Under this Act, withholding of information or providing false information were punishable offences according to Clause 39 of the Act.
