CID drops case against Rajitha Senaratne


The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) yesterday (25) informed the Colombo Magistrate Court that it will be withdrawing a case filed against former Minister Rajitha Senaratne over the allegation of delivering eight ships from a Chinese company to Sri Lanka and leasing the Modara fishing port to a foreign company during his tenure as the Minister of Fisheries.

The charges will be dropped in the event that the Commission to Investigate Allegation of Bribery or Corruption (CIABOC) has already lodged a case against the former Minister under the offence ‘corruption,’ the CID told the Court.

Accordingly, the Colombo Magistrate Court allowed the case to be dropped.
