Former Development Board Chairman, Sarana Gupta Goonawardane, was today released on bail over two cases filed by the Bribery Commission against him for not declaring his assets and liabilities from 2005 to 2007.  

Appearing before court after a notice was issued on September 7, the suspect today said he was prepared to plead guilty to the charges when the case was taken up again.

Colombo Chief Magistrate Gihan Pilapitiya releasing the suspect on a surety bail of Rs. 100,000 for each case, fixed the case to be taken up again on January 5, when the suspect will be served with charge sheets.

The suspect has nine other cases filed by the Bribery Commission connected to allegations of corruption during his tenure as DLB Chairman. (Shehan Chamika Silva)
