Former UPFA MP Duminda Silva’s lawyer today informed the Colombo Chief Magistrate’s Court that his client was prepared to plead guilty and end the three on-going cases filed against him by the Bribery Commission on charges of failing to declare his assets in 2011, 2012 and 2013.

The Colombo Magistrate's Court on January 13 released former Mr. Silva on bail in the three cases filed by the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption.

    He was lost for some time, we thought he was lifted by the black defender.

    He had only one option and that is to plead guilty.

    This might be a strategy. This will help him in other cases of how he earned big wealth during last 5 years?

    Hi- He is a clever fellow. Ask him to submit the reports for three consecutive years before sentencing. Pleading guilty and vanished from the court not done! bye- Nihal Gunatilake

    He says he lost his memory in the case of the Baratha inquiry but remembers back to 2011. So he was lying through his teeth.

    May be a deal to turn him to state witness on crimes against MR.

    We dont need to act surprised as we all know his memory loss was all BS. Yet for him to plead guilty something is going on as big fish dont usually surface. via DM Android App
