Transparency International Sri Lanka (TISL) will file complaints against eight Cabinet Ministers at the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption (CIABOC) today.

The complaints are related to the failure of the Ministers to submit their asset declarations for 2018/19.

The anti-corruption watchdog has repeatedly called on all 225 Members of Parliament to publicly disclose their declarations of assets and liabilities in the interest of strengthening their accountability and as an example of their commitment to an open democracy.

However less than 10 MPs have so far made their asset declarations public.
