Sajin Vass fined Rs. 1,000 by court

In Local

The Colombo Additional Magistrate today imposed a fine of Rs 1,000 on former MP Sajin de Vass Gunawardena, who pleaded guilty for failure to declare his assets from the year 2011 to 2012.

The Bribery Commission had filed a case against the former Parliamentarian for failing to submit declarations of assets and liabilities during his time as an MP from March 31, 2011 to March 31, 2012.

When the case was taken up for hearing before Colombo Additional Magistrate Aruni Artigala today (7), Gunawardena pleaded guilty to the charge.

The Additional Magistrate imposed a fine of Rs 1,000 on the former MP, who will be sentenced to one year in prison if he fails to pay the fine.

Legislators in Sri Lanka are required to make annual disclosures of their finances while the non-declaration of assets and liabilities is a punishable crime under the Declaration of Assets and Liabilities law.
