TISL calls for response on “Political Donations” Allegation

Transparency International Sri Lanka notes with concern the recent media allegations published by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) against President Maithripala Sirisena. The allegations connect Snowy Mountain Engineering Company (SMEC), an engineering company headquartered in Melbourne, Australia with alleged requests for “political donations” connected to President Maithripala Sirisena dating from 2009 (prior to assuming the Presidency). 

The commitment to strengthen anti-corruption efforts underpins President Sirisena’s yahapalanaya (good governance) mandate. Furthermore, given the need for responsibility to be taken for the actions of those working under his control, Transparency International Sri Lanka requests President Sirisena to urgently provide a detailed response to the allegations put forward.
