The Chairman of the Board Of Investment (BOI) Upul Jayasuriya has resigned from his post on personal grounds.

His resignation comes as the BOI faces allegations over some of the agreements it had signed in the recent past.

Jayasuriya was the former President of the Bar Association of Sri Lanka.

Speaking to Ada Derana, Jayasuriya said that he handed over his official vehicle along with the letter of resignation.

He revealed that pressure had been exerted during certain decision-making and actions taken as well as hindrances to carrying out duties and that the difficulty acting according to ones heart had an effect on his decision.

However, he pointed out that he was able to act independently when taking certain decisions and actions and expressed his gratitude to the support from the subject minister, Prime Minister and the President during his time in office.

He was elected as President of the Bar Association of Sri Lanka in 2014 and continued in Office for 2 years.

He was appointed as BOI Chairman in February 2015 by President Maithripala Sirisena.

Jayasuriya has previously served as Chairman of Sri Lanka State Trading Tractor Corporation and Chairman of the Ceylon Oils and Fats Corporation.
