CID officer in bribery net

An indictment has been filed against a CID officer before Colombo High Court for allegedly accepting a bribe from a person to support him to be released on bail from the Court, in March 2007.

The Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery and Corruption filed indictment against Police Constable T.P.S. Amarandika de Alwis of Menikhinna attached to the Criminal Investigation Department for accepting a gratification of Rs. 50,000.

According to the indictment the PC allegedly accepted the gratification from Derrick Buultjens of Welivita, Kaduwela on March 30, 2007 to help him obtain bail from the Court and also to get his bank account reactivated that was frozen by Court.

According to the complain, the PC had accepted the bribe from Buultjens who was suspected for misusing Rs. 3 million following the sale of a house fraudulently. In his statement to the Bribery Commission the suspect stated that he was arrested by three officers of the CID based on a false allegation. Thereafter he was produced before Court and remanded. Later the PC told the suspect that he could support him to obtain bail from the Court.

When he said that he could not give money as his account was frozen by the Court, the PC also promised to support him to reactivate the frozen account. The PC gave his mobile phone number to the suspect to call him when the bribe money was ready. Later the suspect made a complaint before the Bribery Commission.
