Former Transport Minister and United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) Parliamentarian Kumara Welgama was released on bail by the Colombo Chief Magistrate a short while ago over illegally paying Rs.3.2 million to the former Vice Chairman of the Sri Lanka Transport Board (SLTB).

He was released on a cash bail of Rs 25,000 and two sureties of Rs. 1 million by Magistrate Gihan Pilapitiya. The Magistrate didn’t sign the charge sheet against the MP today due to the preliminary objection raised by the Defense Counsel.  

Magistrate Pilapitiya said he would consider signing of the charge sheet after observing the appointment letter of the former SLTB Vice Chairman. The case was fixed for March 24.
