Opposition questions failure by AG to look into over 8000 files

The opposition today questioned the failure by the Attorney General ‘s (AG) department to look into over 8000 files piled up at the department.

Former Minister D.E.W. Gunasekera said the failure to look into over 8000 files means the complaints of the public are not being investigated.

He said that some files have been at the AG’s department for years and yet there is no one to raise a voice over this issue.

Gunasekera said the President and Parliament have failed to take note of the issue and obtain a solution for the people.

He said the Government keeps expressing views about corruption and files on former Government members, yet is silent on the 8000 files containing complaints made by the public. (Colombo Gazette)
