‘Top 10’ files to homes of civil society activists Featured

The joint opposition plans to visit the homes of civil society activists who had spoken against bribery and corruption during the Rajapaksa regime, and hand them over the files of incumbent government politicians facing similar accusations.

The JO has launched a campaign titled ‘Top 10’ to expose the 10 worst corrupt ministers in the present administration.

They will also voice opposition to the silence of the civil society activists over these latest accusations.

Meanwhile, a JO spokesman says the government is having a black marketer who earns massive commissions from certain government-to-government agreements with China.

The money thus earned is deposited in an account in a bank in Hong Kong, he claims.

This minister is also accused over the bond issue and the coal supply tender, but anti-corruption civil society activists are keeping silent due to their political partiality, the spokesman charges.

The JO campaign will also try to prove that the accusations against the previous regime are false.
