Anti corruption drive hindered over difference between CC and Executive

Colombo, Dec.27 (Daily Mirror) - The appointment of the members to the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption (CIABOC) has now been delayed for nearly one month due to difference of opinion between the Constitutional Council (CC) and the Executive on the nominees, Daily Mirror learns.

An informed source said the Executive insisted on three names to be appointed to the Commission to be established in terms of the newly enacted Anti-Corruption Act.

The CC is reported to have endorsed one time Deputy Secretary General of Parliament Neil Iddawela as the Chairman of the Commission as recommended by the Executive.

However, it has not agreed to the two other nominees proposed. Instead, the CC sent the names of two others about one month ago.

Still, the appointments have not been made resulting in the inability to operationalize the new Anti- Corruption Act in full.
