The Financial Crime Investigation Division (FCID) today submitted a report to Additional Magistrate Nishantha Peiris on the investigation launched into a complaint lodged by the Voice Against Corruption (VAC) against MP Namal Rajapaksa on money laundering charges.

The complaint lodged by JVP Provincial Councilor Wasantha Samarasinghe last year had charged a company by the name of Gowers Corporate (Pvt) Ltd allegedly headed by Mr. Rajapaksa, had purchased shares from a company called Hellocorp from ill-gotten funds worth Rs.125 million.

In the report, the FCID sought the Magistrate’s order to suspend four fixed deposits that were in several Banks and to ban the seven employees of the two companies from travelling abroad.

Subsequently, the Magistrate ordered to suspend the four fixed deposits and imposed a travel ban on the seven employees. (Shehan Chamika Silva)

    May be better to first collect all these stolen money and sensationally reduce taxes and still have money left for development.
