Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa's Chief of Staff Gamini Senarath and two others were acquitted and released by the three-member panel of judges from the case filed over the alleged misappropriation of Rs. 500 million from the Litro Gas Company

The final verdict was given by the bench comprising of Justices Sampath Abeykoon, Sampath Wijeratne and Champa Janaki Rajaratne.

Accordingly, the other two accused, Piyadasa Kudabalage and Lasantha Bandara were acquitted and released  in addition to Gamini Senarath.

Permanent High Court-at-Bar stated that the defendants would be acquitted since the petitioners  were unable to prove the charges without a reasonable doubt.

The Attorney General had filed a case against four people including former President Mahinda Rajapaksa's Chief of Staff Gamini Senarath for allegedly misappropriating Rs. 500 million from the Litro Gas Company.

However, after the trial ended, a three-member special High Court had recently released Neil Bandara Hapuhinna from the case without calling for any witnesses.
