The report by the cabinet sub- committee appointed to investigate the recent fuel crisis has laid blame on the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation.

The three-member committee which was appointed by President Maithripala Sirisena handed over its report to the President yesterday.

The Committee in its report pointed out that the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation did not take any action to meet the fuel crisis, although it was aware that a fuel shortage was imminent.

It said that the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation officials knew of the impending crisis but did not take any measures to maintain the existing stocks.

The report says the CPC has failed to maintain sufficient stocks of fuel and manage the stocks.

The committee recommended that further investigations should be carried out by the committee.
