Corruption in Sri Lanka: Interview with J.C. Weliamuna

J.C. Weliamuna is the Executive Director of Transparency International in Sri Lanka and an Attorney-at-Law. He and his family were lucky to escape with their lives after two grenades were thrown into their house, just a week or two after this interview was recorded.

Our discussion explored the nature of corruption in Sri Lanka, how it stunts Sri Lanka’s development and contributes to violence. We also looked at challenges and options in raising public awareness to effectively eradicate corruption from polity and society.
