Feb 08, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) has informed the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery and Corruption that the party together with opposition political parties in parliament will present a no confidence motion against the Commission's Chief Jagath Balapatabendi.

JVP parliamentarian Sunil Handunnetti has informed the Secretary of the Commission in writing about the no confidence motion to be moved in parliament against the Commission's chief since the Commission had failed to take action on a complaint handed over to it against its head.
