.The Executive Presidency was used to put an end to the Police Financial Crimes Investigation Division (FCID) and the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption (CIABOC), Convener of the Voice against Corruption Movement (VAC) Wasantha Samarasinghe said yesterday.
Addressing a news briefing, he pointed out that both the Prime Minister and the President were jointly attempting to put a stop to investigations carried out by the two agencies by weakening the FCID and the Bribery Commission.
"Although there are thousands of complaints lodged with the FCID, only 450 cases are being investigated at present. I don’t understand for what benefit these pair are trying to postpone these investigations," he said.
He boasted that their movement has been extremely vocal on this issue. Hence, he said they had organized two seminars to educate the general public about the corrupt taking place within the government which was voted in under the disguise of bringing about 'Good Governance'.
"We urge the government to carry out transparent inquiries to identify and arrest all the wrong-doers not taking into account their importance or standing in society," he added. ( By Sheain Fernandopulle)

When the previous commissioner was doing his job it was the President who interfered and slowed down the entire process and eventually had her transferred out. This is nothing but an agenda to stop all criminal and financial fraud that happened and is happening now. But JVP is another pawn in working for another mafia eg doctors running agencies to send students abroad - so they want to clos the SAITM . Everyone is bent on fooling the illiterate masses in the country.

This country is being systematically 'murdered' by all politicians. There will never be anyone honest enough and strong enough to take us forward. The previous bunch of mega crooks are rubbing their hands together with glee anticipating a return to the plundering of our beloved country.

The momentum prevailed on 8 Jan 2015 to create a God Governance and bring rogues to justice has dissolved into thin air. Its still not too late for the ruling coalition to fulfill their commitments.Respectfully handover the ruling to another if unable to keep promises

It is not the Media but the general public especially those who voted for the YP that is disappointed as it looks as if there is no government with the investigative arms and judiciary taking matters very slow to bring the crooks to book.
