The Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption has been handling over 3,000 cases since the Presidential Polls and over 90% of the assets cases were against the politicians and state officials of the previous regime.

Commission’s Director General Dilrukshi Dias Wickramasinghe told the Daily Mirror yesterday that they are currently working on over 3,000 separate cases of corruption, unlawful acquisition of assets and solicitation of bribes.

Prior to her assuming of duties as the Director General there had been over 1,800 pending cases that were stagnating for months and after her posting the commission had received over 1,200 complaints against various individuals and state bodies, she said.

She also said over 70% of the cases were related to corruption and unlawful acquisition of assets and out of that over 90% were lodged against leading politicians and senior state officials of the previous regime.

The commission’s expert investigation team supervised by experienced attorneys work day and night to complete the increasing number of complaints on a daily basis.

Wickramasinghe however had positive hopes for the appointment of a new Commissioner for the vacant post of the Commission following the implementation of the provisions of the 19th Amendment. (Kurulu Koojana Kariyakarawana)

    I work at the above commission. All the above it true but not a single case in front of courts because no proof enough to initiate proceedings.

    You investigations are like searching a mountain and to discover a molehill. Is it turning out to be another NATO ( No action talk only ) syndrome?

    Sincere Monday, 01 June 2015 01:18 PM

    We are not interested to know the numbers of receipts, but numbers of action.

    Who knows MR will be stoned to death before that.

    How many cases filed before court? Please answer.

    Madam, yes we have seen and heard how hard your department works. It is sad to mention that despite all sort of investigations, interrogations, only a few has been arrested and produced before courts.It is equally surprised to see that only Sri Lanka has courts to provide protection to corrupt officials for avoid being arrested Thank you for your services any way!

    THE MAIN FAULT IS THAT THEY DO ONLY HANDLING BUT NO DECISIONS TAKEN.

    Esala Tuesday, 02 June 2015 08:25 AM

    No action talk only.

    If MaRa wins the election, will she be stoned to death as well as well..??

    farsighted Tuesday, 02 June 2015 09:42 PM

    But opposition politicians already made guilty by media; i wonder if any action has been taken against government ministers like Rajitha Senaratne. apparently maintaining double standards
