* Future UNP government in Sri Lanka to probe misuse of public property since independence
Mon, Jan 27, 2014, 11:19 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 27, Colombo: Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) says a further government under the party will probe the misuse of public property since independence in 1948.

UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake said at a news conference that the party will not hesitate to probe any misuse of public property and funds since the UNP supported the setting up of the Bribery Commission in 1984.

He made this comment in response to a challenge posed by the Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) where the UNP was asked whether it would probe the misuse of public property since 1948.

According to Attanayake, a future UNP government will also comply with the new procedures to be implemented by the World Bank where it had decided to demand the funds it had given to various organizations in the event they are misused.

He has added that the UNP will therefore probe the manner in which foreign funds have been utilized in the country.
