The Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption today filed an application at the Colombo High Court seeking an order to revise the bail order granted to Avant Garde Chairman Nissanka Senadhipathi and Major General Palitha Fernando.
On September 6, the Commissioner arrested both Senadhipathi and Fernando and produced them before the Colombo Chief Magistrate Gihan Pilapitiya, who released them on bail on the same day.
As per the charges by the Bribery Commission, eight suspects including Senadhipathi, Fernando and former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa have been charged with allowing Avante Garde to maintain a floating armoury, which has resulted in them making an unlawful profit of Rs. 11. 4 billion.
The case will be taken up on October 17, 2016.
