Sri Lanka’s government announced on Thursday it will sack its top anti-corruption investigators, accusing them of protecting former president Mahinda Rajapakse and other members of his regime against graft allegations.
Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe informed his Cabinet of the decision to replace the three heads of the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption (CIABOC) after the August 17 general election, a government spokesman said.
“Investigations have been delayed by at least six months because of the obstructionist attitude of the commissioners,” spokesman Rajitha Senaratne told reporters.
