The Commission to Investigate allegations of Bribery or Corruption yesterday filed two cases against former Parliamentarian Duminda Silva regarding his failure in declaring assets.

The two cases were filed at the Colombo Magistrate’s Court on the failure of declaring his assets in March 2013 and March 2014.

Earlier Silva was summoned several times by the Commission to make declarations on his assets and liabilities. However, Silva had said to the media that he was expected to submit a report on his assets to the commission as well as the Parliament.

The Colombo Magistrate earlier ordered the Police to inspect all accounts held by Silva at several banks and financial institutions following a statement made by the arrested narcotic kingpin Samantha Kumara alias Wele Suda that he had given money to Silva.
