Additional officials to catch corrupt public servants

The Bribery Commission, as per President Maithripala Sirisena’s instructions, would deploy about 200 additional officials countrywide to nab public servants who accept bribes from the general public, Kurunegala District Senior Divisional Secretary W.E. Jayathilake said.

He was speaking at a meeting of pensioners in the Kurunegala district at Bingiriya on December 31, 2017.

Three police officers attached to the traffic division of the Polgahawela Police Station were arrested for accepting a Rs.5,000 bribe from a man to release his driving licence and they were produced before Kurunegala Magistrate Sampath Hewawasam recently, he said.

About 234 government officials who have allegedly solicited bribes were arrested in 2017, he said.

It is necessary to catch corrupt public servants. However, why this issue is focussed only on the public servants but not the politicians who are corrupt to the core. It seems there is one law for the public and another for the politicians who think they can do what they like. They think that way mainly because the public have allowed it and behaved in a slavery manner to the politicians. It is high time that general public stand up to these corrupt politicians.
