High Court orders temporary freeze on assets of Ex-Minister’s family

July 04, Colombo (LNW): The Colombo High Court today (04) has mandated the freezing of 16 fixed deposit accounts and three insurance policies linked to the family of ex Health Minister Keheliya Rambukwella, following an application by the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption (CIABOC).

These assets, which belong to Rambukwella’s spouse, three daughters, and son-in-law, have a combined value of approximately Rs. 93.125 million.

The freeze will remain in effect for seven days.

The former Minister is currently in remand custody over allegations related to the procurement of substandard immunoglobulin injections.

The Bribery Commission secured the freezing order under Section 53(1) of the Anti-Corruption Act No. 09 of 2023, as part of an ongoing investigation under Section 42, which also extends scrutiny to the spouse and family members of the accused.
