Mobile phone bill case against Keheliya fixed for Feb.2

 

The Colombo Chief Magistrate's Court fixed February 2 to deliver its order on preliminary objections raised today by former Minister Keheliya Rambukwella and the former State Printing Corporation (SPC) Chairman.

They are alleged to have caused an unlawful loss of Rs.230, 984 to the government after paying the former Minister’s mobile phone bill using SPC funds, during his tenure as the Mass Media Minister in 2012. 

The defense had raised preliminary objections regarding the maintainability of the charge sheet. 

The Bribery Commission alleged that the former Minister induced the CPC chairman to pay his mobile phone bill from March 15, 2012 to April 14, 2012 causing an unlawful loss to the government, while serving as the Mass Media Minister.
