CIABOC files action against Gota and seven others

Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption filed action against former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa and seven other individuals for unlawfully authorizing floating armory which earned Avant Garde Rs.11.4 billion.

The other seven persons include former Additional Secretary of the State Ministry of Defence Damayanthi Jayaratne, Major General Palitha Fernando, Major General K.B. Egodawela, former Navy Commanders Admiral Somathilake Dissanayake, Admiral Jayanath Colombage, Admiral Jayantha Perera and Avant Garde Chairman retired Major General Nissanka Senadhipathi.

The case of the “floating armoury” had come to light after the Sri Lankan Navy boarded the vessel on October 6, 2015 to discover a massive stash of weapons on board.

The Bribery Commission had decided to launch an investigation into the floating armoury of the Private Security Firm based on the Attorney General’s observation that action could be initiated against the company over charges of bribery and money laundering.
