COPE report on 23 enterprises out on Wednesday
The Parliamentary Committee on Public Enterprise (COPE) will release its report on 23 state sector organisations on Wednesday, Parliament announced today Oct 21.
The Chairman of COPE MP Sunil Handunetti said the House should act swiftly to bring those persons responsible for various acts discovered by the Committee before the law, according to a press release issued by Parliament.
“The true owners of these enterprises are the people of the country and the public should know how and what the funds from these institutions are used for, as that will strengthen democracy,” Handunetti added.
This is the third COPE report of the Eighth Parliament and contains reports of inquiries carried out between March and October last year.
Two organisations, the National Commission and the Road Development Authority were called before the Committee on several occasions, the Chairman said.
