Natl. audit Act amended 23 times, yet to be gazetted Featured

The national audit Act has been amended on 23 occasions within a space of 14 years, although it is yet to be gazette, says lawyer N.K.H. Kumarasinghe of the Sri Lanka Audit Services Union.

The attorney general approved draft was handed over to the cabinet in 2003, but four successive governments kept on making amendments to it, he says.

The present regime gave cabinet approval on 22 April 2015, but the secretary to the prime minister is not allowing it to be gazetted, he charges.

Therefore, the JVP’s Sunil Handunnetti had to table the draft bill as a private member’s motion, he adds.
