Vasu demands action on frauds during CBK time

Vasudeva Nanayakkara yesterday wrote to the Inspector General of Police demanding to know why no investigations have commenced on the number of fraudulent business agreements which were later overturned by the Judiciary, even two years after his written complaint.

With copies send to the Heads of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Financial Crimes Investigations Department and the Director General of the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption, MP Nanayakkara demanded to know why no action has been taken on the cases outlined which were carried out during the former President Chandrika Kumaratunga’s terms.

Reminding that he wrote to the Ministry of Law and Order Secretary Jagath P. Wijeweera as well as the Financial Crimes Investigation Division Senior DIG to follow up on his complaint in 2016, the Parliamentarian said that he is “surprised that even the Attorney General has neglected to take any action despite Supreme Court directives”.

Nanayakkara complained that no action has been taken regarding a number of “cases of defrauding large scales of public monies established before the Supreme Court, which had ordered to prosecute by the law enforcement authorities”.

He highlights that no action has been taken against those responsible in the Water’s Edge Case, Lanka Marine Service Case, where Colombo Port Oil Facility Sale was found fraudulent, and the Sri Lanka Insurance Corporation privatisation case, which have all been found fraudulent by the Judiciary of the country.
