Former Chief Justice Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake has been barred from leaving the country for a period of 3 months.  

 

The Bribery Commissioner had requested of the Controller of Immigration and Emigration to not to allow Dr. Bandaranayake to leave the country until the investigations into the alleged corruption charges against her were completed.

 

A Parliamentary Committee had ruled that Dr. Bandaranayake was guilty of not declaring her assets which led to her impeachment.

 

However, the judiciary had ruled that the Parliamentary committee was illegal and its report was nullified.

 

According to the law, the Commission has the right to prevent people facing bribery charges leaving the country when investigations have commenced against them.
