Vehicle misuse: Probe against Weerawansa resurfaces

Probes into allegations of misuse of vehicles belonging to the State Engineering Corporation by Ruling Party MP Wimal Weerawansa have reportedly resumed, weeks after the former minister’s act of rebellion against the current regime.

The Transport Manager of the Corporation has been summoned to the Corruption Investigation Division of the Commission Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption (CIABOC) related to the case today (10).

The probe into the vehicle misuse allegedly committed during the period of 2010 – 2014 was initiated during the period of the previous Good Governance regime and Weerawansa was arrested in 2017 on the charge thereby being subject to remand imprisonment for nearly three months.

As the current regime came to power, the investigations were stalled without any update, but have resurfaced upon Weerawansa’s removal from the Cabinet over his act of rebellion against the government.

At the time of the alleged vehicle misuse, the State Engineering Corporation was operating under the Ministry of Construction, Engineering Services and Housing under Weerawansa.
