Dr. Rajitha Senaratne and two others | CIABOC files indictments 

The Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery and Corruption (CIABOC) filed indictments against former Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne and two others for allegedly causing losses to the State when leasing out the Modara Fisheries Harbour in 2014.

The other two defendants in the case include former Ceylon Fisheries Harbour Corporation (CFHC) Chairman Upali Liyanage and its former Managing Director Neil Ravindra Munasinghe.

The indictment has been filed under Section 70 of the Bribery Act, and on five charges.

They are accused of causing losses to the government by persuading the CFHC Director Board to lease the Modara Fisheries Harbour to a private company for an insufficient sum between the period of 1 August and 1 November 2014.
