Mervyn Summoned To Bribery Commission

Public Relations Minister Mervyn Silva has been summoned to the Bribery and Corruption Commission to respond to a complaint lodged over his assets.

An official at the Commission, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that the complaint relates to the luxury vehicles used by his son Malaka Silva.

However, the Commission official refused to name the person who made the complaint and the date the Minister was expected to appear.

According to the complaint the Minister does not possess huge assets which allow him to purchase the type of luxury cars used by his son. The Commission says it has received complaints over the assets of several other government Ministers as well.  (ISA)

    Noone has faith in this so called “commission”.
    Even now,a minister who has yet to explain Rs.400 Million of unaccounted assets has yet to be prosecuted in courts.There are many more like him.

    Lets hope this “COMMISSION” will finally start to serve its true purpose by doing its job effectively.

    The commission will also look into the small matter of the LAMBORGHINI owner. I am sure. Or is it a small vehicle not worth looking for.

    This commission is efficient only to investigate complaints made against those who are not in good terms with the present Government. Like the select committee of the Parliament which probed the Ex. Chief Justice in a record short period, the Bribery Commission is trying to do the same thing in probing her bribery complaint. I will stand on my head if this Bribery Commission would investigate the complaint lodged against Mervyn.

  8. commision has no powers regarding politicians. this govt is a corrupt government
