Keheliya’s GI pipe case postponed for October 1

Colombo Chief Magistrate Lanka Jayarathne yesterday postponed a corruption case filed against former Minister Keheliya Rambukwella and two others for October 1.

This relates to causing an unlawful loss to the government after allegedly purchasing 600 of GI pipes using Sri Lanka Rupavahini Corporation’s (SLRC) funds during the previous Presidential Election.

Assistant Director General of the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption (CIABOC) Asitha Anthony sought another date for the trial due to the absence of Deputy Solicitor General Azad Navavi.

The CIABOC had filed charges against former Minister Rambukwella, former SLRC Director General Chandrapala Liyanage and former SLRC Chairman Wimal Rubasinghe under Section 70 of the Bribery Act.

The Bribery Commission alleged that the three accused in the case had incurred a loss of Rs. 990,000 to the SLRC after purchasing 600 of GI pipes on or around December 2, 2014.
