Former chairman of the Lotteries Board, Sarana Gunawardena, was released on bail, after being produced before the Colombo Chief Magistrate Gihan Pilapitiya on Wednesday.

The magistrate ordered that the suspect pay a surety of  Rs.200,000 to secure his release.

Two cases were filed by the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption against Sarana Gunawardena on the charge of not declaring his assets or liabilities for the two year period he was in office as chairman of the Lotteries Board.

When the case was called up on Wednesday, the former chairman pleaded guilty to the charges.

The case will be taken up once again on January 5.
