JHU not happy with progress to crackdown on corrupt officials

champika ranawakaThe Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) today expressed its disappointment with the slow progress to take action against top officials of the former Government who were accused of corruption.

JHU General Secretary and Minister of Megapolis and Western Development, Patali Champika Ranawaka said that the JHU will continue to push for legal action on corrupt officials.

He told reporters in Kandy that even the legal process in some cases involving corrupt officials is taking a back seat.

“We may face abuse for saying this but we will not be shaken. We will take the January 8 revolution forward,” he said.

He said that there was a call to establish special courts to deal with major corruption related cases but the special courts could not be established.

Ranawaka said that now the existing courts must ensure the allegations are looked into and that justice is served.

Ranawaka also said that the JHU will in future form a broad alliance and he invited those who are supporting former President Mahinda Rajapaksa to reconsider their stand and join the JHU. (Colombo Gazette)
