COLOMBO (News 1st): Former Auditor General of Sri Lanka Sarath Chandrasiri Mayadunne says the State Audit Sector has the strength to pursue audit acts via the new act.

Speaking to News1st on the new National Audit Act, Mayadunne noted that section 4 of the new act empowers the general public to inform the Auditor General whenever they face issues relating to Government Services. He added that if there is sufficient evidence the act compels the Auditor General to look into it and report it to the Parliament as well as share his findings with the people through the Audit Department’s website.

The former Auditor General also noted that the Cabinet of Minister as well as Parliamentarians are bound to give the necessary strength, support, and backing to the Audit department or they too could face legal ramifications because of it.
