Watchdog website hits streets of Colombo

From The Sunday Times
Ipaidabribe.lk, the Sri Lanka version of a powerful watchdog website which operates in 15 countries, was promoted on Monday through a public awareness campaign conducted at the Fort railway station by many youth volunteers. Launched in Sri Lanka by Asanga Abeyagoonasekera last December, the website could be accessed in all three languages from http://www.ipaidabribe.lk/#gsc.tab=0

The promoters said the site has user friendly features to navigate and to report on bribery as well as the backend of the site which has a powerful quantification method to point out the most corrupt government institution, ministry, police department or the province after several months of data collection. “The site runs very well in India, Pakistan and I don’t see the reason why it can’t run properly in Sri Lanka, with proper Government and media backing we could empower individuals with this powerful tool,” said Mr. Abeyagoonasekera who introduced the site from the Diri Saviya Foundation.
