Mar 04, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Marxist party, Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) has expressed concern over the manner in which the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery and Corruption handled certain complaints.

JVP parliamentarian Sunil Handunnetti, who handed over a complaint against the Bribery Chief to the Commission, has said there were questions over the Bribery Commission's handling of the complaint against its Chairman.

Speaking to media, Handunnetti said that there needed to be clarity on the Commission's reasons for deciding against pursuing the complaint.

He added that the Commission had also informed the media of its decision not to probe the complaint before officially informing him (the complainant) of the decision.

According to Handunnetti, the Commission had informed two state media institutions of its decision on the complaint against the Bribery Chief.
