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.
The NGO said Sri Lanka has ratified the UN Anti-Corruption Convention in March 2004.
According to TISL, the Convention stipulates the government is obliged to implement anti-corruption measures with regard to laws, institutions and practices.
Transparency International is to award the National Integrity Award (NIA) on the 9th to commemorate the ratification of the Convention. The event is to be held at the BMICH.
