JVP discusses Bribery chief issue

2014 Jan 11

Jagath balaThe Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) has had a special discussion on the Chairman of the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption (CIABOC), Jagath Balapatabendi.

JVP sources said that the discussion looked at the action which needs to be taken against Balapatabendi.

At the meeting, JVP MP Sunil Handunetti noted that while he had submitted a petition to the Commission regarding allegations raised against the Commissioner, no action has been taken so far.

JVP member K.D. Lalkantha, meanwhile said that the Government seemed to be avoiding the issue completely.

The JVP leadership later agreed that legal action must be filed if the issue is not addressed soon.

JVP members said that their lawyers will be approached on the legal aspect. (Colombo Gazette)
