The Office of the Prime Minister has issued a statement rejecting claims that the Anti-Corruption Committee Secretariat is facing a possible closure.

The Anti-Corruption Committee Secretariat, located near Temple Trees, was set up after the presidential election in January 2015. It was an adjunct body of a high-powered committee that met weekly to review anti-corruption work. This was set up on a recommendation to the Cabinet by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.  The primary function of the Secretariat is to observe public complaints and direct those of substance to respective bodies, the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption or the Police Financial Crimes Investigations Division.

The statement also noted the Bribery Commission, the FCID and the Anti-Corruption Committee Secretariat are currently in the process of compiling a report to help make the Secretariat more efficient.
