Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said the Financial Crimes Investigation Division (FCID) that was set up to investigate into the corruption and frauds would be legalised to continue the investigations after August 17.
The Premier made this comment addressing his United National Party (UNP) special convention which adopted a resolution to work as a broader political front to pursue good governance and democracy.
He also promised power devolution to the island’s provinces as part of the reconciliation process with the minority Tamils.

    At least it put our big rogues on pins. Our foolish people only need white van ruling. Even willing to give their wives and children for the sake of so called development and winning wars.

    It means it is temporary and by "Legalizing" it means it becomes permanant

    Sikuru Sunday, 12 July 2015 09:43 AM

    By legalizing it it will become a permanent organization, Its not illegal but temporary

    Prem Nath Sunday, 12 July 2015 09:56 AM

    All the investigations and allegations become null and void and can be challenged.Wow,what management.This cannot be legalized by the care taker government and will have to wait till after the elections.

    CURRENTLY IT IS FUNCTIONING UNDER THE COMMOAND OF THE PRESIDENT AND GOVERNMENT , IF IT LEGALISED IT WILL BE GAZETTED WITH THE ENDORSEMENT OF ALL PARLIAMENT MEMBERS. PREVIOUSLY EVEN MINISTERS IN CURRENT GOVT TOO ARE ROBBERS WHO JOINTED FROM PREVIOUS REGIME , SO THEY DID NOT PERMIT THIS TO GAZETTE WITH APPROVAL OF ALL PARLIAMENT MEMBERS. HOPE IT IS CLEAR
