The President has accepted the resignation letter of Director General of the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption Dilrukshi Dias Wickramsinghe.

Wickramsinghe submitted her resignation to President Maithripala Sirisena on 17 October.

Additional Solicitor General, President’s Counsel Dilrukshi Dias Wickramasinghe assumed duties as the Director General of the Bribery Commission on 12 February 2015.

Dilrukshi Wickramasinghe has headed probes into alleged corruption involving top officials in the former government of ex-president Mahinda Rajapaksa, including his brothers, son and officials. Sirisena defeated him in a January 2015 election. Last week, President Maithripala Sirisena expressed his displeasure after the anti-corruption agency took former defense secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa, younger brother of the ex-president, and three ex-navy chiefs – who are hailed as war heroes – to court on corruption charges.
