Match Preview Perhaps surprisingly given their stature in the Mexican game, these two sides have only ever met in the Campeon de Campeones once before.That was way back in 1976, when the title was contested between the league and cup champion, and America won 2-0. That was just their second title, though they have moved to five since then.As winners of the last three, Tigres will be feeling confident of rising to the occasion but this will be a slightly strange occasion. With so many first-team players rested after the Copa America and Gold Cup, it may well have the feeling of a pre-season friendly.Still, America fans will have to wait a little longer to see their new star man Giovani dos Santos in action as he works his way back to full fitness following an injury-hit final season with the LA Galaxy.“We are continuing to try and accelerate his return,” said manager Miguel Herrera. “However, we don’t want to throw him in there before he is ready and risk an injury.”Opposite number Ricardo Ferretti is looking forward to the occasion but doesn’t think losing would take any of the gloss off their Clausura title, won after a two-legged final against Club Leon.Like America in the Apertura, they finished second in the league season but eventually prevailed in the end-of-season play-offs.”The trophy is a recognition to what was done in the two tournaments,” Ferretti said. “There must be a winner, but it does not mean that the loser has done it wrong, it is a prize for both for what was done the previous year”.
Referring to the allegations levelled against her by the Opposition that she has no mandate to ask the former President to come to the Bribery Commission for a statement, Wickramasinghe stated that each and every citizen of this country irrespective of their status or positions is equal before the law of the land. Wickramasinghe said that the delay in getting the statements from the former President and MP Attanayake was not due to certain opposition parliamentarians’ agitation in the parliament but due to a number of government holidays in the month of May. Wickramasinghe further said that the Speaker of the parliament has no authority to summon a public servant to Parliament to be questioned.The Speaker had summoned Wickramasinghe after notice was issued on the former President earlier but she was out of the country at the time so the Chairman of the Commission was summoned instead. The Bribery or Corruption commission is to issue notice on former President Mahinda Rajapaksa to appear before the commission despite recent protests in Parliament and outside.Director General of the Bribery Commission, Dilrukshi Dias Wickramasinghe has told The Sunday Leader newspaper that the former President and former Health Minister Tissa Attanayake’s impending interrogation has not been withheld, but will be carried out shortly. “If the parliamentarians think that the law of this land cannot be imposed on rich and powerful but only against poor and frail then it is up to the legislative council that should pass that law. So then I can investigate the complaints made only against the poor and frail not the rich and powerful,” Wickramasinghe said.According to Wickramasinghe in the event the Commission receive complaints, the Commission will follow the normal procedure to find out whether there is concrete evidence to carry out further investigations or not which is decided by the three Commissioners including the Commission Chairman but not the Director General.
