Colombo High Court Judge Gihan Kulatunga today sentenced former DIG Vass Gunawardena to five years rigorous imprisonment after he was found guilty of threatening to kill the then ASP now CID director Shani Abeysekara, who questioned him during the investigations into the killing of Businessman Mohammed Shiyam in 2013.

The Court also imposed a fine of Rs.25,000 with another year’s rigorous imprisonment in case of default.

The Judge observed that the prosecution had proved the charges beyond reasonable doubt.
