Did Dilrukshi Wickramasinghe Just Fire Salvo At Her Boss?

Directir General of Bribery Commission Dilrikshi Dias Wickramasnghe said the Commission had initiated action on 948 of 1600 files received by the Bribery Commission which were stranded at the time of her appointment.

Wickramasinghe, who was previously the Additional Solicitor General, was appointed  to the Commission by Presidnet Maithripala Sirisena to expedite investigations.

The new Director General vowed to take stern action against officers of the bribery commission who are proven of misconduct.

However, Bribery Commission Jagath Balapatabendi himself is at the receiving end ofa serious allegation with several newspaper reports alleging that Bribery Commission chief Jagath Balapatabendi received a vehicle which was released through a judgment in a bench he presided over.

They also revealed that the former Supreme Court judge had been presented with a car (KG-9321) by a person by the name of Harsha Prabath an unscrupulous vehicle trader who was under the watch by the customs for years for defrauding the customs.

“It is our ardent deity to create a situation of zero tolerance on bribery or corruption in the country,” Wickramasinghe said today.

She also added that her first stepwas  to clean the commission, asked public to inform complaints about officers of the commission. However, no action has so far been taken against the Chairman who still holds office as the Head of the Bribery Commission of Sri Lanka.
