Attorney General Dappula de Livera has informed the Secretary to the President that the MCC agreement proposed to be signed by the previous Yahapalanaya government is not legal.

Accordingly, the Attorney General has stated that the documents exchanged in connection with the agreement are unconstitutional.

However, the US had decided last December to suspend the US $ 480 million grant to Sri Lanka under the agreement.

The current government has stated that this is an agreement that is unfavorable to the country and will not be signed without a review.

The President also appointed a committee to look into the matter.
