CIAA directs ministry on panel report

The Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) has directed the Finance Ministry to implement the report prepared and submitted by the task force constituted to make recommendations in connection with the vehicles, machinery and other goods imported for various projects in the country.

The task force was constituted under the Convenorship of the Director of the Department of Customs and had representatives from various Ministries.

In its report, the task force had suggested to update the record and document of such goods, delegate the authority to auction such goods to the Ministry concerned, allow the use of machinery of one project for another project and permit export of old machinery.

Recommendation was also made to ensure that the transfer of ownership renewal was made only on the recommendation of the Department of Customs, investigate if the renewal was not held for a long-time and to provide detail information about the final date of the return of such goods.
