Sajin Vass Bailed Out, But Court Issues Travel Ban

Former UPFA Parliamentarian, Sajin de Vass Gunawardena was released on bail today by the Colombo Chief Magistrate, while also imposing a travel ban on him. He was released on a cash bail of Rs. 500,000 and four sureties of Rs. 5 million each in a case where he allegedly defrauded a private company Rs, 600 million.



He was arrested by the CID in June subsequent to a complaint lodged by a businessman, who is the Director of the company, claiming that Gunawardena had swindled millions of rupees from the company.

He is also out on bail in another case where he allegedly misused some 26 vehicles belonging to the Presidential Secretariat during former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s term.

Gunawardena, a one time loyalist of Rajapaksa, switched sides and extended support to incumbent President Maithripala Sirisena following Rajapaksa’s defeat at last year’s presidential election.

    Arrested & bailed out immediately – just another day in paradise for Sajin Vaas & the likes of him in Sri Lanka. Pigs will fly the day any of these punks are actually convicted & made to repay the stolen loot.

    a guy who steals in billions is free, more than 2000 prisoners cannot afford bail money of rs 5000. and rotting in jail for stealing food/push bikes and farm animals.
    justice must be served then we Sri lankens can say we have a country, not drama central.
