Suren J Amarasekera resigns from the post of the MD (Managing Director) at Ncell, the private telecom company. As known, Ncell Officials were already aware of his possible step down. Friday (May 10, 2019) would be the last day of his tenure at Ncell.
Sources say that Mr. Suren cited his personal and family issues to be the reason behind the resignation. He was appointed in the post on July 7, 2017.
For their petition at Apex Court, they had been successful with the Stay order for not to recover the tax until further discussion. At the ICSID, Ncell filed a request for arbitration claiming Nepal contravenes the bilateral agreement between Great Britain and Nepal.
Reason for resignation
As sources claim the resignation was solely his personal and family issue, some people try to connect the capital gain tax issue with the resignation. The personnel also refuse any connection between the resignation and the CGT.
Before, Suren J used to work as Strategic Projects Director in Axiata Group Berhad, Corporate Headquarters in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, focusing on key group initiatives across its South Asian operations in Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Pakistan.
