The Government today said that it would establish a special bureau with more powers than the Financial Crimes Investigations Division (FCID)in the future.
Minister of Health, Dr. Rajitha Senaratne at the Cabinet Briefing told reporters that the Cabinet was yet to hold discussions pertaining to the matter.
“As we promised to punish the wrong-doers on Jan 08, we will be making more powerful institute. That is not yet discussed in the Cabinet but, this is the Government’s position,” he said.
He further said that the FCID would not be dissolved. “It (FCID)was formed according an election pledge on Jan 08. The term of the FCID will be extended. The Government’s plan is to have a powerful bureau to apprehend culprits who played with public money,” he said.
