COLOMBO (News 1st); JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake was summoned to the Police Unit of the Presidential Commission of Inquiry into Political Victimization, appointed by the present President, on Wednesday (26).
He was questioned with regard to the Anti-Corruption Committee that functioned during the period of the Government of Good Governance or the Yahapalana Government.
Dissanayake provided a statement to the Police Unit for almost two hours.
“This is the first time in Sri Lankan history that a Presidential Commission was appointed to make observations on the report of another Presidential Commission that was appointed to investigate the same events,” said Dissanayake.
Dissanayake has already filed an application with the Court of Appeal citing concerns over the Presidential Commission.
Speaking to reporters after providing his statement, Dissanayake said the JVPs struggle against corruption will continue and it is not merely against one person or an institution, but a struggle against the entire group of corrupt individuals.
He also called on the government to step down as it has failed to keep any of the promises made to the people.
