Former CIABOC Director General Dilrukshi Dias Wickramasinghe Vindicated: A Triumph of Justice

Glad to see justice being served for the former Director General of the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption (CIABOC).

We are glad that President’s Counsel (PC) Dilrukshi Dias Wickramasinghe, a former Director General of the CIABOC, and a Deputy Additional Solicitor General of the Attorney General’s (AG) Department, who was under suspension based on an allegation that involved an audio recording, has seen some form of justice, even after some time.

We consider the fact that the Public Service Commission (PSC), which investigated the allegations against Wickramasinghe, has decided to acquit her of the related charges, as an encouragement to the public officials who follow the law according to their conscience.

When considering the allegations levelled against Wickramasinghe, it is reflected that certain insidious forces had built up an unlimited power base in the country in the past. It is also possible to understand how such forces were attempting to deprive the country’s leading Commissions of their independence. It is also a sinful act for such forces to prevent her from being promoted by fabricating allegations.

The decision given in relation to Wickramasinghe can be considered as an opportunity to reaffirm the just operation that people expect from independent commissions, which is truly a progressive situation.

It is the responsibility of every responsible party in the country to ensure that such situations do not happen again in our country. We also emphasise that it is the responsibility of the relevant institutions to serve justice Wickramasinghe, who was subjected to great injustice due to the actions of opportunistic forces.

We kindly request the Speaker of the Parliament and the Chaurman of the Constitutional Council (CC), Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena, and CC members to appoint Commissions that have not yet been appointed.
