Probes on fraud, corruption will continue: PM

12 September 2015 03:13 am - 13     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has said that investigations into allegations of corruption and fraud against ministers and MPs of the Rajapaksa regime would not be stopped despite some of them being appointed ministers of the present government.

Responding to a question raised by Parliamentarians of the United National Front for Good Governance (UNFGG) at a workshop held for the new Parliamentarians on Thursday at the Parliamentary Complex Mr. Wickremesinghe had said that those who had plundered the wealth of the people would not be spared and no one would be allowed to use their portfolios as shields to cover up their misdeeds or escape punishments.

The Prime Minister asserted that the institutions set up to take action against those who had been involved in corruption and abuse of public properties would be strengthened and a Bill that would bring the FCID and the Bribery Commission in par with similar institutions in the US and UK would be introduced in Parliament on September 22.

    Anton, these politicians take us for free ride every 5-6 years. That is how "Probe" is defined in the SL political dictionary.

    All the probes done so far has not produced any results but just hoodwinked the general public. Therefore we are waiting to see some genuine probes performed.
