Nissanka Senadhipathi’s bribery case fixed for 14 Nov

The bribery case filed against Avant Garde Chairman Nissanka Senadhipathi has been fixed for 14 November by the Colombo High Court, today.

Senadhipathi could not appear at today’s court proceedings as he was in remand custody for another ongoing case.

Subsequently, the Colombo High Court ordered the Superintendent of Prisons to produce Senadhipathi, before the court on the said date.

Senadhipathi has been charged by the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption (CIABOC)  for offering a bribe of Rs 35.5 Mn to Rakna Lanka Company Chairman Retired Major General Palitha Fernando. Senadhipathi had been served indictments on 47 counts over the bribery case.
