News: We have no National Policy to combat bribery and corruption right now
Posted Date: 27/03/2018 (Tuesday)
Q The public, the media and politicians charge more often than not that the CIABOC has failed to bring before the law those big time perpetrators like politicians and top officials in the public sector who had allegedly engaged in bribery and corruption. What do you have to say on this allegation? The CIABOC solely and entirely investigate, establish a case and file charges against suspects of bribery or corruption on the availability of evidence.

Posted Date: 26/03/2018 (Monday)
Whatever countries of the West preach, their record speaks volumes and should be nothing they or their citizens can be proud about.

Posted Date: 25/03/2018 (Sunday)

Institute “a special court to check on the alleged war crimes or face universal jurisdiction.” The terse warning issued in Geneva at the periodic review of progress with regard to alleged human rights violations in Sri Lanka means that this country has to begin a legal process of trying people who are alleged to have committed war crimes during the separatist war or open the country’s people to arrest and prosecution in other countries.
