Aug 24, Colombo: The Colombo Chief Magistrate's Court yesterday postponed the case against former Media Minister Keheliya Rambukwella and former Chairman of the State Printing Corporation Jayampathi Bandara Heenkanda to October 1.

Colombo Chief Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne yesterday dismissed the preliminary objections filed by the defendants in court and set the date for the hearing.

When the case was heard last September, the defendant filed preliminary objections to the charge sheet, and the plaintiff filed objections. The court decided to reject the objections and continue the case.

The case filed by the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption against Keheliya Rambukwella and former Chairman of the State Printing Corporation Jayampathi Bandara Heenkenda charges that the defendants between March 15, 2012 and April 14, 2012 used Rs. 230,000 of the State Printing Corporation money to pay the former minister's personal mobile phone bill incurring losses to the government.
