SLIIT refuses to go before COPE
Sri Lanka Institute of Information Technology (SLIIT) has refused to go before the Committee on Public Enterprises (COPE) as it is not legally obligated to do so.
According to the Parliament Media Division, SLIIT has informed COPE through a law firm that it had not been legally obligated to do so.
Therefore, COPE decided to summon the law firm first to resolve the matter.
COPE further recommended that since SLIIT is an institution of national importance, an internal report should be prepared regarding the SLIIT reporting to Parliament and then it could be decided what action should be taken on the matter.
It was revealed that SLIIT does not have an internal auditor or an accountant. COPE recommended that these two vacancies be filled as soon as possible.
