Court extends freeze on assets of ex-Health Minister’s family

July 05, Colombo (LNW): The Colombo High Court has extended its order to freeze 16 fixed deposit accounts and three insurance policies belonging to family members of ex-Health Minister Keheliya Rambukwella for an additional three months.

The combined value of these frozen assets is estimated to be Rs. 93.125 million. This extension applies to accounts and policies held by Rambukwella’s spouse, three daughters, and son-in-law.

Rambukwella is currently in remand custody due to allegations surrounding the procurement of substandard immunoglobulin injections.

The asset freeze was enacted by the Bribery Commission under Section 53(1) of the Anti-Corruption Act No. 09 of 2023, as part of a broader investigation under Section 42, which includes scrutiny of family members and other associated individuals.
