The President emphasizes that he is committed on fulfilling the responsibility of rounding-up culprits who have plundered public assets, and the recovery of stolen funds.

President Maithripala Sirisena says that according to the final report of the Presidential Commission to Investigate the Serious Financial Crimes, many top politicians and officials of the previous regime are responsible for misusing public funds and abusing political power. They are now attempting to evade punishment by forming a new political party with the sole intention of grabbing power by deceiving the people.
