Projects not getting off ground under Rajapaksa World Bank

A group of visiting World Bank (WB) officials has disclosed that no projects were getting off ground under the President Mahinda Rajapaksa led regime.
During an informal meeting with opposition leader Ranil Wickremesinghe on Friday the WB officials had also expressed their growing concern over the rampant human rights abuses in the country.
They had however made no indication whether the World Bank was looking at imposing possible financial restrictions on the country with the intention of pressurizing the government to work towards eliminating widespread abuses.
