* Fundamental rights petition against Sri Lanka's Bribery Commission chief in preparation
Sat, Feb 15, 2014, 09:29 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 15, Colombo: Sri Lana Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna was consulting legal experts to file a fundamental rights petition against the Chairman of Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption, party sources said.

The party is planning to file the fundamental rights petition against the former Supreme Court judge Jagath Balapatabendi in the upcoming weeks, according to party sources.

JVP MP Sunil Handunnetti lodged a complaint against the Chief of the Bribery Commission in the same Commission but the complaint was rejected as baseless.

The Commission has said that it has not found any material to commence an investigation against the head of the Commission.

The former Supreme Court judge is accused of obtaining a vehicle from an importer who was a party of a case the judge examined.

A Commissioner of the investigative body has said that he had reviewed the complaint and found that the Bribery Commission Chief had not been involved in a corrupt act.
