Cabinet has decided to continue with the Anti-Corruption Committee Secretariat (ACCS) until a fully-fledged new institutional structure similar to the one in Britain is in place, the Government Information Department said today.

The ACCS was set up on a Cabinet decision in 2015 to receive and facilitate complaints in cases of serious fraud and corruption.

The Information Department said Sri Lanka’s Anti-Corruption Secretariat is to be restructured and a fully-powered Serious Fraud Office similar to the Serious Frauds Office in Britain is to be set up.

    Very good move, but the culture of the citizens of this country itself is corrupt. Therefore, we should bring in a subject in schools where children are taught to work, think and administrate according to good practice and clear conscience.
