No decision yet on future of Anti-Corruption Secretariat

The Government says a decision has not yet been taken on the future of the Anti-Corruption Secretariat.

Cabinet spokesman Dr. Rajitha Senaratne said that cabinet had yesterday discussed the operations of the Secretariat.

He said that concerns were raised at the cabinet meeting that the Secretariat was  not investigating major frauds by the former regime.

Senaratne said that the Secretariat was accused of investigating only minor incidents.

The Minister said President Maithripala Sirisena took note of the failure by the Anti-Corruption Secretariat to investigate major frauds and decided to have a further discussion on the Secretariat at the next cabinet meeting. (Colombo Gazette)
