Jan 07, Colombo: The parliament of Sri Lanka will receive a motion calling for the removal of the Chairman of the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption (CIABOC).

The Marxist party, Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) will present the motion in parliament while also calling on the Commission to investigate the allegations of corruption levelled against its Chief, Jagath Balapatabendi.

JVP Propaganda Secretary, parliamentarian Vijitha Herath said a writ application will be submitted before court calling for action against the Bribery Commission head if the CIABOC fails to investigate the complaint lodged against the Commission's Chief.

According to Herath, parliament has been vested with powers in the Constitution to remove judges of superior courts and commissions.

"The head of the Bribery Commission can also be removed under the powers," he added.
