Tue, Jan 28, 2014, 02:33 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 28, Colombo: Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) says the party will initiate legal action against any public official who directly or indirectly encourage fraud and corruption in the country.

UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake told a news conference that apart from politicians, it is the public officials who play a key role in fraudulent and corrupt transactions in the country.

He explained that it is the people who have to bear the burden of frauds and corruption in the country.

He pointed out that it is wastage and corruption that has resulted in a square meter of the Colombo-Katunayake expressway costing Rs. 1.7 million.

"People have to pay for these and to maintain the Norochcholai coal power plant that is broken down often and people who have never boarded an airplane have to pay for the losses of SriLankan Airlines," Attanayake charged.

He observed that politicians as well as public officials are responsible for these actions and the UNP will initiate legal action against persons involved in such matters.
