The Bribery Commission yesterday recorded a statement from UNP MP Palitha Range Bandara who had complained that certain individuals had offered him bribes to support the administration which was appointed on October 26, last year.
The Commission had questioned Mr. Range Bandara for more than an hour.
“I was asked to give a statement in connection with the attempt made by members connected to the administration that was appointed on October 26 last year to bribe me. I gave a statement and also handed over tapes of the telephone conversations I had with those who called me,” Mr. Bandara told journalists who gathered at the Bribery Commission in Colombo last afternoon.
“I gave a statement as I wanted to help with the investigations,” he added. (Yohan Perera)
