Colombo High Court has freed the former minister S.B.Dissanayake from bribery and corruption charges.

Former Minister Dissanayake of the United National Party (UNP) was charged for having earned nearly 30 million rupees by illegal means.

The Colombo High Court judge Rohini Perera, giving her judgment said that the Bribery Commission has not been able to prove without doubt the charges brought against the former minister.

The judge said Dissanayake was able to prove that he has earned his assets including money and property amounting to 30 million rupees between March 31, 1995 and Sept. 30, 2001 by legal means.

The judge, Rohini Perera who criticised the Bribery and Corruption Commission said it should act in a more reasonable manner and bring cases against people with sufficient evidence.

"Filing cases against people without proper evidence only results in innumerable damage to the personality of the particular person", she added.
