Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA) Treasurer Dr. Nath Wijesuriya has been summoned to the Bribery Commission yesterday to record a statement over an investigation launched into an alleged foreign funds receipt by the GMOA.  

 GMOA Secretary Dr. Haritha Aluthge and several top officials who met the Bribery Commission officials last morning handed over a letter stating that the complaint filed against them was false.   


Dr. Aluthge said there was a conspiracy led by several Ministers to suppress the GMOA in order to cover up their corruptions.  “The complainant or the nature of the complaint was not disclosed as yet, therefore the GMOA will request the Commission officials for the original complaint,” he said.

Dr. Aluthge said that all financial transactions of the GMOA were done in a transparent manner, while two internal and external audits were conducted annually.   He said that the GMOA never depended on the Government or on foreign funds, and that any independent commission could obtain the audit reports through the Department of Labour.   


GMOA Assistant Secretary Dr. Naveen de Zoysa said that although the independent commissions hunted the trade unions they never raised questions over the expenses or corruptions of the Ministers.    “There is no one to question how the poor people’s tax money was spent in the House. The Government should immediately declare a mechanism to show how the collected tax money was being spent,” he added.
