Port Unions seek probe into fraud, corruption


The Sri Lanka Ports Trade Union Collective (SLPTUC) said they will be shortly submitting a report to the President related to large scale acts of fraud and corruption which had taken place within the SLPA.

They said the report will contain 20 such incidents which had taken place at the SLPA premises.

The SLPTUC says that they had also urged the new head of the SLPA Dr. Sarath Obeysekera to investigate the issues raised by them.

They had stated that the previous management of the SLPA had condoned such acts which had taken place and hence they are of the view a separate probe should be conducted on the conduct of the previous management as well.
