Motion against auditor general! Featured

A group of UNP MPs is planning to bring in an adjournment motion against the auditor editor, most probably at today’s (27) sittings of parliament, political sources say.

They met yesterday to discuss their plan, say the sources.

It comes in the wake of a claim made to the media by minister Lakshman Kiriella that the World Bank has informed the government that the AG’s report into the Central Bank bond sales had been prepared in violation of the internationally-accepted process.

However, president Maithripala Sirisena gave a telephone call to the AG recently and advised him not to allow any politician to cover up acts of fraud and corruption and to work bravely for the public’s sake.

That follows reports that a government minister had threatened the AG, after he had sent a copy of a report he had requested to the speaker.

The president has said that he was very much worried that he was forced to cohabit with a gang of thieves, after previously having abandoned a government run by a 'royal family of thieves', say AG’s department sources.
