Dec 05, Colombo: The anti-corruption non-governmental organization, Transparency International Sri Lanka (TISL) says that the Sri Lankan government has failed to follow the UN Anti-Corruption Convention.

Transparency International has in a statement noted that the government has failed to submit self-assessment reports on the implementation of anti-corruption measures.

The submitting of such reports has been outlined in the UN Anti-Corruption Convention.
