- Wakista said that it is misleading to say that cases have not been re-filed
- Cases are being openly withdrawn without fear or shame
- Amongst the 19 cases, 13 are against the Rajapaksa family
- The case against Rohitha Abeygunawardena will be filed soon
Startling accusations have come to the fore alleging that the two Commission members of the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption- Justice (Rtd) Deepali Wijesundera and Chandra Nimal Wakista- have taken all steps to impede the ongoing / withdrawn bribery cases of selected ruling party members and their allies.Following the public uproar against the Rajapaksa administration and with the allied parties of the Government becoming independent- thus losing two-third majority in parliament- the two Commissioners are accused of giving instructions to legal and investigation officers to impede the withdrawn cases in order to close the case files.
“Wakista said that he is not aware whether there are cases filed against the Rajapaksa family”
It is claimed that within the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption (CIABOC), that instructions have been given by Commissioner Wakista to take disciplinary action against a senior legal officer who has vehemently refused to heed unlawful instructions given by the former.
