Former Treasury Secretary Dr. P.B. Jayasundara arrived at the Presidential Commission of Inquiry to Investigate and Inquire into Serious Acts of Fraud, Corruption and Abuse of Power, State Resources and Privileges (PRECIFAC) to give a statement over misappropriation of Rs. 5 billion government funds in 2014.
A spokesman for the commission said Dr. Jayasundara was being questioned by the Investigations Unit attached to the PRECIFAC with regard to a complaint received by the commission over an allegation of importing 100,000 metric tons of rice from an Indian Company against the Cabinet Decisions.
He said the government had incurred a loss of Rs.5 billion due to the transaction.(Ajith Siriwardana)

Yes some of these crimes and frauds committed by very intelligent crooks - so even if there is absolute knowledge to prove them in a court of law is tough.

Whether cases will be filed, not filed or proved not gulty due to lack of evidence; it is pretty clear that all those who were brought before inquiring bodies were part and parcel of the corrupt coterie of the former regime.
