President accepts Dilrukshi’s resignation
President Sirisena has accepted the letter of resignation tendered by Dilrukshi Dias Wickramasinghe, Director General of the Bribery Commission.

Dias Wickramasinghe resigned from the post on Monday, in the wake of public criticism from the President the week before.

At an event at the Sri Lanka Foundation Institute on October 13, the President warned investigative bodies - specifically the CID, the FCID and the CIABOC - not to work to political agendas.

The Deputy Director General of the Commission will be appointed as the Acting Director General, until the position is filled.
