Presidential Commission Investigating Serious Frauds to be further empowered


It is reported that attention has been focussed towards further empowering the Presidential Commission of Inquiry in to Massive Fraud and Corruption.

The Commission was tasked with looking in to large scale fraud and corruption carried out by Politicians and Government Officials during the time period from 2010 to 2015.

The commission also does not have the mandate to inquire in to criminal offences.

Secretary of the Commission Lacil De Silva stated that a request has been made to further empower the commission.
