JVP asks for debate on closure of ACCS

July 15, 2017

The Leader of the JVP Anura Dissanayaka has requested the Speaker to allow a day’s debate on the closing down of the Anti-Corruption Committee Secretariat.

Mr. Dissanayaka said it is expected to talk about the move to close down the Anti-Corruption Committee Secretariat and the attempts to hinder the struggle against fraud and corruption. He said he has requested the Speaker in writing to allow a day in the second week of the month for the debate.

The JVP Leader has warned the government that stern action would be taken as a political party if the government attempts to sabotage investigations being carried out on frauds and corruption by weakening institutions that implement law and order in the country.
