* Sri Lanka Marxists to impeach the Chairman of Bribery or Corruption Investigation Commission
Sun, Jan 12, 2014, 10:04 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 12, Colombo: Sri Lanka Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) says the party is planning to file a proposal to impeach the Chairman of the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption (CIABOC) Jagath Balapatabendi.

A spokesman of the party said that legal advice is now being sought to file the impeachment against the Chairman at the upcoming parliamentary session.

JVP says that the impeachment motion would be brought since the government had not expressed its views on the JVP's complaint against the Chairman and also the probes against the Chairman had not been started yet.

The party earlier asked the President Mahinda Rajapaksa to suspend the official. The JVP says that there needs to be a proper inquiry into the allegations against the Chairman or else the credibility of the institution is at stake.

JVP expects to collect signatures of one third of the MPs for the impeachment motion to remove the Chairman of the Commission.

JVP has complained that former Supreme Court Judge Jagath Balapatabendi was engaged in malpractice with regard to judgments he delivered and levelled allegations of corruption against him.
