Godahewa Says No Oil Leak From MV Xpress Pearl: NARA Conducts Further Tests After SKY News Report On Oil Leak

State Minister Nalaka Godahewa said both Sri Lanka Navy and Indian Coast Guards who have anchored near 'MV Xpress Pearl' confirmed that there was no oil spill from MV Xpress Pearl.

The State Minister said the news report by a foreign channel about a large oil spill was incorrect.

"Imagery could be misleading. In any case, we are dispatching experts today also to verify the same," Godahewa tweeted.

The National Aquatic Resources Research and Development Agency (NARA) said tests are being conducted following the SKY News report.
