The Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption (CIABOC) today informed Court that it would indict the former chief of staff of President Maithripala Sirisena and another state official on charges of accepting a bribe of Rs.20 million from an Indian businessman.

Bribery sleuth C. Chandrasiri told Colombo Chief Magistrate Lanka Jayaratna that the investigations into the bribery allegations levelled at the two suspects - President's ex-chief of staff I.H.K. Mahanama and State Timber Corporation's former head P. Dissanayake - had been completed.

The suspects had originally solicited a bribe of Rs.540 million from the Indian businessman on the promise that they would provide the necessary approvals to obtain machinery and building space.

The case was fixed for September 10. (T. Farook Thajudeen)

    This is a comparatively recent case.This would give the general impression that bribery cases are few and far between.

    Why September 10, why not tomorrow? The special court was setup to hear such corruption cases. When is Gota returning? His case is also being postponed deliberately.
