Justice Titus Bodhipala appointed BC Chairman

20 October 2015 04:16 pm - 2     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}

President Maithripala Sirisena appointed three fresh Commissioners to the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption, today, ending several months of inability to function fully.

Retired Supreme Court judge, Justice Titus Bodhipala Weerasuriya will head the three-member commission, with retired Appeal Court judge, Justice Lal Ranjith Silva and retired Senior Superintendent of Police Neville Guruge being members.

The president approved the list of names submitted by the Constitutional Council two weeks ago.

The Constitutional Council selected the three commissioners from those nominated by various institutions and individuals -- including the Organisation of Professional Associations and the Retired Senior Police Officers' Association.

When contacted, freshly appointed Commissioner Neville Guruge told Daily Mirror that the commission now had teeth to act fully under the Act and with its competent Director General Dilrukshi Dias Wickramasinghe.

Commissioner Guruge was at one time Director Investigations of the Bribery Commission, when he was a Senior Superintendent of Police. He was later appointed as a consultant to the commission after he retired from the police.

The new commissioners will assume duties on Thursday, October 22. (Kurulu Koojana Kariyakarawana)
