COLOMBO (News 1st) – Sri Lankan President Ranil Wickremesinghe told Parliament on Thursday (8) that a Parliament Select Committee will be appointed to investigate alleged economic crimes.
However, the President said he is prepared to do so, only if the parliament agrees to it.
Sri Lanka faced an allegation of economic crimes for the very first time at the United Nations Human Rights Council in September 2022.
Nada Al-Nashif, the Acting High Commissioner for Human Rights said that the abuse of power and economic crimes have impacted human rights in Sri Lanka.
She told the 51st session of the UNHRC in Geneva on 12th September 2022, that the Sri Lankan situation is an important illustration of how human rights and corruption intersect.
