The United National Party says there is a serious doubt over whether the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption will conduct a stringent investigation into the former Minister cited in the Pandora Papers.
UNP General Secretary Palitha Range Bandara in a statement to media said the public has no confidence or hope in the conduct of a transparent investigation.
The former MP said the Commission filed charges against politicians, state institution representatives and businessmen in the past adding that the Commission was also in possession of sufficient evidence and facts pertaining to corruption.
He however said the very same Commission went before Court and withdrew cases citing that there isn’t sufficient evidence or technical issues.
Therefore, Range Bandara said a transparent investigation cannot be expected.
