Former Director General of the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption Ms. Dilrukshi Dias Wickremesinghe had to leave the position not due to any weakness in her duties but due to a political reason says the Chief Whip of the Opposition JVP Parliamentarian Anura Dissanayaka.
When Ms. Dilrukshi Wickremesinghe was made to resign investigations in connection with a powerful minister of the government and a state minister, who had also served as ministers of the previous Mahinda Rajapaksa regime, had begun said Mr. Dissanayaka speaking in Parliament on Thursday (23rd). He said investigations against a son of a MP who acted with the powers of a minister too had commenced when Ms. Wickremesinghe had to leave the post.
Mr. Dissanayaka said a case against the former first lady was about to be filed after investigations regarding a complaint against her had been completed and added only one case has been filed after the resignation of the former Director General of the Bribery Commission.
100 complaints lodged before the FCID have been withdrawn said Mr. Anura Dissanayaka adding that handing over complaints to FCID has been stopped at present.
Frauds and corruption committed behind the war should be revealed to the country said Mr. Dissanayaka participating in the Parliamentary debate on a resolution to increase funds to carry out raids by the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption.
