The Director General of Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption Dilrukshi Dias Wickramasinghe had tendered her resignation letter to President Maithripala Sirisena today.

 

The DG of the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption had in her letter said she wished to resign from her post with immediate effect.

The letter sent to the Presidential Secretariat was to be brought to the notice of the President who had returned from India around 4.30 p.m. today.

She declined to comment further on her decision to resign after her return to the country on Saturday after attending a one-week training programme in Malaysia.

However, the informed sources disclosed that she was disappointed by a recent statement made by the President who is reported to have said that the Bribery Commission, the FCID and the CID were functioning according to political agendas. (Kurulu Koojana Kariyakarawana)

    She has done the right thing instead of bowing down to cheap political gimmicks and bankrupt politicians of the so called Joint opposition. I hope the vast majority of honest, clean and straight people in the CID, FCID and Bribery Commission will follow suit.

    Premalal Monday, 17 October 2016 02:49 PM

    Dead on

    Dayawathie Monday, 17 October 2016 02:51 PM

    Are you sure you appointed this president ?. I doubt it. You never voted him.

    RAZA Monday, 17 October 2016 02:52 PM

    It was expected long ago.Sri Lankan public service only recognises Yes Men. She will be not allowed to do a job by people in the dept.as corruption is part of society.Mahendra knew this in advance.So he made the brave move to play out the country in TB.

    Premalal Monday, 17 October 2016 02:52 PM

    He will because he is running scared. This is our hero.

    BuffaloaCitizen Monday, 17 October 2016 03:05 PM

    What more can you get from a Grama Sevaka.

    Hubert Monday, 17 October 2016 03:06 PM

    Majority who are educated made good comments they must appoint an expatriate. Bad words irresponsible statement and spoiler

    Veda-mama Tuesday, 18 October 2016 04:12 AM

    You are a great person, Mahsen for exposing your ignorance with pride.

    S kumara Monday, 17 October 2016 03:14 PM

    Yes u can run away for now. But what u have done will follow u till your die.Repayment will be at high cost of interest

    ra Tuesday, 18 October 2016 04:55 AM

    MS has proven everyone in Sri Lanka and around the world that he is the student of MR's politics.

    Arnold Monday, 17 October 2016 03:18 PM

    This is they beauty of yahapalanaya. People are able to criticize the government and still be alive. If it was MRs time this woman would have disappeared and fed to salt water crocodiles, without a chance to say a word.

    Kautiya Monday, 17 October 2016 03:20 PM

    Next best person to be appointed is Sarath Nanda Silva

    wikileaks Monday, 17 October 2016 03:21 PM

    crime buster? just for my clarification, how many crimes has she busted so far?

    dhanu Monday, 17 October 2016 03:23 PM

    Former president could not recognize that kind of people as well.

    Aba Jayasekera Monday, 17 October 2016 03:24 PM

    Why did she not call Arjun Mahendran if she was fair ?

    Rimzan Monday, 17 October 2016 03:27 PM

    This country can never be made as long as there is brainless buffoons running the country!

    That is really sad

    Maya Monday, 17 October 2016 03:38 PM

    Contrary to his earlier announcement, even if he run for the next presidential election MS won't make it. All started as he tried protecting his misbehaving son.

    Soldier Monday, 17 October 2016 03:39 PM

    Fools does not understand that the bond issue is not comes under bribery.

    Mr Perfect Monday, 17 October 2016 03:41 PM

    You cannot blame the individual on performance as orders come from the very top. We all know there are rouges within the government but nothing can be done due to the top politicians who are corrupt and need to fool the masses saying we are taking action but only by words.Sri Lanka a "Comedy Central"

    Rasheed Monday, 17 October 2016 03:44 PM

    Did anybody lodge a complain with Bribery Commission for her to probe?

    nethan Monday, 17 October 2016 03:47 PM

    you just cracked a joke nicely! well done ah

    How about appointing an another Grama Sevaka as new Bribery Commissioner.Not necessarily from Polonnaruwa

    Pibi Monday, 17 October 2016 04:02 PM

    Since 1948 we yet have not got the right kind of leadership at any level. That is why this kind of things happen.

    Maithri was a wrong choice to be the common candidate.

    Vernon Monday, 17 October 2016 04:57 PM

    All of you please remember that a resignation has to be accepted to be effective. This has not happened so far.

    Ha ha...after 1.5 years of political honeymoon now the real game begins for Yahapalanaya. Good Luck :/

    mahsen Monday, 17 October 2016 01:14 PM

    In vain salary increment and other perks. She is not at all suitable to this position . All personal appointments cost SL Gvt. dearly. 1. Arjun Mahendra 2. Dilrukshi 3. Chairman Sri Lankan Air This is not the change we expected.

    willows Monday, 17 October 2016 01:16 PM

    a very wise and courage decision.

    ziyard Monday, 17 October 2016 01:16 PM

    winners are the joint opposition(JO),they got rid of one of toughest crime busters...

    De Silva Monday, 17 October 2016 01:21 PM

    Straight forward lady.

    Bala Monday, 17 October 2016 01:22 PM

    This is because too much Maitri to crooks and undervaluing good officers while embracing crooks as Secs to Ministries. Swallowing wrong advice off Intelligence branch. What a soup.

    Mandy Monday, 17 October 2016 01:24 PM

    President lacks experience to realise his friends and enemies and what advice is sincere.

    Bandara Monday, 17 October 2016 01:28 PM

    Don't worry Tomorrow She Will Be Appointing As an AG or Judge for Supreme Court aiming Next CJ

    Nima Monday, 17 October 2016 01:32 PM

    A well deserved slap on the face of yahapalana govt.

    Dinesh Monday, 17 October 2016 01:33 PM

    We appointed this president to make the people's will for a peaceful, just and corruption free environment a reality. All the while knowing that the breed of politicians in Sri Lanka can never be trusted. But then we also didn't have much of a choice. Despite this, we the people who gave you a mandate must rectify this situation immediately, apologize, step back and work according to the will of the people. And the people also have a responsibility in coming out hard and strong against the actions of the president - Not a god, not a king but a public servant, voted into power to do a job!

    gamaati Monday, 17 October 2016 01:34 PM

    we always lose by appointing the wrong men with our precious vote.

    malij Monday, 17 October 2016 01:40 PM

    A lady with real guts. Straight forward, and unbending to the end The nation salute her for a job well done, even half way. She has more guts in her little finger than the backboneless politicians in their whole body, who came to power riding our votes promising to crack down on corruption. Most of them are no better than the bunch of thugs who ruled the country before them as they were part of them.

    joe Monday, 17 October 2016 01:40 PM

    latest news :new bribery commissioner is from Joint Opposition

    Be Fair Monday, 17 October 2016 01:41 PM

    is this the response to what MS said the other day.If so will wait eagerly to find the replacement is?

    malij Monday, 17 October 2016 01:44 PM

    One of the few remaining straight forward government officials who would not bend to lick the boots of their political bosses. Sorry to see her go like this. Thank you for what you have done under tying conditions and all the best for the future.

    Malith Monday, 17 October 2016 01:44 PM

    She was clearly on a political agenda.. Otherwise why is Arjun Mahendran still not called for investigation for his daylight robbery??

    BR Monday, 17 October 2016 01:44 PM

    A courages lady wish her all the best.

    Do you want a person from the JO to be the DG of the Bribery Commission?

    Cats paw Monday, 17 October 2016 01:51 PM

    Crime buster Or revenge taker !

    B S Perera Monday, 17 October 2016 01:54 PM

    MS should get MR's advice on the next appointment

    My friends friend Monday, 17 October 2016 01:54 PM

    Quo vadis? Perpetual treasury file has to be handled sooner or later. Better run away before that !

    Arjuna Monday, 17 October 2016 01:55 PM

    This decision is against Hon. PM's instruction and DG should have to wait till PM arrival to SL

    kamal Monday, 17 October 2016 02:01 PM

    She is not impartial. Because treasury bill suspects are not questioned.

    vithura Monday, 17 October 2016 02:03 PM

    If this resignation is the result of interference in performing her duties, then we all who expect to see corrupt politicians consigned to the garbage heap should really be concerned about the happenings lately.

    malij Monday, 17 October 2016 02:10 PM

    Double crossing of the highest order of the people, by the politicians who got elected by them. Ven Maduluwawe Sobhita thero would have been aghast at the way the thing are going if he had lived.

    Kautilya Monday, 17 October 2016 02:11 PM

    MS should get advice from Gota to appoint new Bribery DG

    Sandaruwan Monday, 17 October 2016 02:12 PM

    Yes its a good decision to resign

    RajaN Monday, 17 October 2016 02:15 PM

    Very disappointing and betrayal of trust

    mike Monday, 17 October 2016 02:19 PM

    I thought one day our Hon.President will be honoured with a Noble Peace Prize for his work.Now all hopes for better Sri Lanka fades away the way his Excellency openly criticising the independent commissions and it's work and officers.

    Gayan Monday, 17 October 2016 02:20 PM

    She should not be allowed to get away so easily. She should be investigated for politically motivated bias during her tenure.

    Freddy Monday, 17 October 2016 02:20 PM

    Corruption, drugs, terrorism etc are ongoing and it's takes time but what is most important currently is running the country to surplus by hook or crook. Even Tamil ltte terrorism took 30 years to end and their cells are all over the World supported by all Tamils. Bribery Commission should educate the people and get the peoples and informers help to prosecute Corruption slowly, and gradually. If politically motivated than it defeat is purpose.

    Desmond Jeromme Monday, 17 October 2016 02:42 PM

    MS made a foolish speech and trapped by MR and the looters.

    German Jacob Monday, 17 October 2016 02:43 PM

    Premalal Monday, 17 October 2016 02:44 PM

    There are fools and there are idiots but to you Mr. Mahasen goes the prize.The great work you performed to deserve this honour is the failure to recognize that few and rare maybe there are people who value their honour more than money or status.I salute the lady.

    J Palitha Monday, 17 October 2016 02:45 PM

    It is good for the looters of our nation in the previous regime, not for peace loving people.

    N V Jen Tuesday, 18 October 2016 12:56 AM

    As usual Party Politics has over taken the interests of the nation. President's outburst is outrageous.

    Premalal Monday, 17 October 2016 02:47 PM

    What do you expect when you thrust an unknown party secretary to the Presidency.

    MajorCrime Monday, 17 October 2016 02:47 PM

    If she is a better crime buster, she should have sneaking to Bond scam to set an example.

    Kadupol Jothywansa Monday, 17 October 2016 02:48 PM

    MR made MS a lunatic now and to take wrong actions and wrong versions. Poor fellow he is going to be under the foot of MR and cry like those days.
