Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa informed parliament today, that the appropriate method be followed by Bribery Commission’s Chairman to obtain a statement from a MP, or hold an investigation against a MP, is to educate the speaker about such action beforehand.

He also said that, if the Bribery Commission wants to obtain such a statement, that statement should be obtained without disturbing parliamentary affairs.

The Speaker declared his decision today at the request of Opposition MPs who objected the summoning of former president Mahinda Rajapaksa to the Bribery Commission.

Having opened parliament sessions today, the speaker asked the opposition protesting MPs to leave the Well of the house and return to their seats.

Later Speaker Rajapaksa presented his statement over the issue.

Meanwhile, 116 Opposition MPs handed over a letter with their signatures to the speaker requesting to remove the Director General of the Bribery Commission.

However, the Speaker was compelled to adjourn the house sittings twice today due to MPs’ protests.

The house was first adjourned for 15 minutes after a group of opposition MP occupied the well of the house.

Later it was adjourned for the second time for half an hour to hold a party leaders’ meeting.
