Sajin Vass Gunawardena pleads guilty


Former Defence Ministry Monitoring MP Sajin Vass Gunawardena who pleaded guilty in a corruption case filed against him by Bribery Commission was ordered to pay a fine of Rs.1000 by the Colombo Chief Magistrate today. 

This is the third time in Sri Lanka a politician was convicted by a Court over an offence that comes under the Declaration of Assets and Liabilities Law.

The Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption filed a corruption case in Colombo Chief Magistrate’s Court against former parliamentarian Sajin Vass Gunawardena over the non-declaration of assets and liabilities while he was serving as a Parliamentarian between March 31, 2011 and March 31, 2012. 

According to Assets and Liabilities Law, the Court has jurisdiction to impose a fine of Rs.1000 or one year jail term for a person who found guilty to the charges.

Colombo Additional Magistrate Aruni Artigala imposed a fine of Rs.1000 regarding the case and observed that the accused will have to serve one-month-jail term in default of payment of the fine.

I was unaware that this "Alibaba" of the former Government Thieves was monitoring the Defence Ministry as well. God forbid, if going by what he did to the Foreign Ministry while "monitoring" it, if he were really monitoring the Defence establishment too, we would have been in a worse soup than what Trump is doing to the Middle-East peace process, not to mention the rest of the world!
