Gunawardena is alleged to have secured public funds when obtaining vehicles on rent for the National Lotteries Board, while serving as the Chairman of the Board.
Sarana Gunawardena was not present in Court today and the Court was informed that he is in remand custody over another court case.
Colombo Additional Magistrate Aruni Artigala issued an order directing the Superintendent of Welikada prison to produce the suspect in Court at the next hearing date.
The Bribery Commission alleged that the accused had committed the offences between 2006 and 2007 while he was serving as the Chairman of National Lotteries Board.
