News: Culture of corruption in Sri Lanka
Posted Date: 30/12/2017 (Saturday)
Corruption has been rampant in Sri Lanka since the 1970s' owing to the political system. People elected the Yahapalanaya Government to eradicate corruption and establish good governance. They, too, have gone back on their promises. The Bond Commission has revealed startling evidence about involvement of key politicians. The Bond Scam is considered to be the biggest fraud since independence. It is a very serious 'white collar' crime committed by greedy politicians. Due to this reason, it is time that we named the corrupt politicians 'thieves of the State." They rob public money 24/7, take commissions, bribes, and resort to various corrupt practices in order to earn billions for their election campaigns and their kith and kin.
