UN Convention Against Corruption

This commitment requires Sri Lanka to ensure compliance with UNCAC. Compliance status of the mandatory provisions are as follows:  

Article 6 - Preventive anti-corruption body or bodies

No compliance update present

  • Article 6.1 Ensure the existence of bodies that prevent corruption by means such as:

    (a) Implementing relevant policies referred to in UNCAC and overseeing and coordinating their implementation;

    (b) Increasing and disseminating knowledge about prevention of corruption.

  • Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption (CIABOC)

  • • Sri Lanka does not currently have a structured prevention plan.

    • CIABOC is in the process of creating a dedicated prevention unit – this is included into the draft National Action Plan that is being formulated by CIABOC.

    • The following are some steps that has been taken:
    o In 2015, CIABOC adopted an anti-corruption strategy, “Seven Steps to Zero Tolerance”- together with a three-year implementation action plan, this is based on two pillars, i.e., enforcement and prevention.
    o CIABOC organizes ad hoc training and awareness-raising activities.

    National Action Plan for combating Bribery and Corruption 2019-2023 provides measures to make amendments to the Bribery Act No. 11 of 1954 in order to establish Corruption Prevention Division at CIABOC & to broaden CIABOC’s mandate to include prevention activities.
