Former Acting General Manager of Sathosa Wimal Perera who was sentenced to one year in prison has been ordered to be released on bail by the Colombo Chief Magistrate.

Accordingly, Colombo Chief Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne ordered him to be released on a personal bail of Rs. 300,000.

Colombo Chief Magistrate convicted him today in the morning after he was found guilty of selling a stock of white rice imported to Sathosa for a lower price to the private sector and therefore incurring a loss of Rs.4 million to the government.  He was sentenced to one year's imprisonment and a fine of Rs 50,000.

He was released on bail after his lawyers informed the court that an appeal would be filed against the decision given.
