Belgium is still continuing its probe against General Sarath Fonseka’s aide Senaka Silva for his alleged involvement in an illegal money transfer case in that country, the CID said.
CID sources told Daily Mirror online that it is only after Belgium concludes its investigations against Silva, will it approach the Attorney General’s Department in Colombo to file legal action.
According to sources, Belgium authorities are likely to visit Sri Lanka soon to file action through the AG’s Department to recover the money which has been illegally transferred to a local branch of an international bank in Sri Lanka by Silva, who is a coordinating secretary of the detained General.
Silva had been sentenced in absentia and imprisoned for two years in Belgium for illegal money transfers, which he is said to have conducted using the internet, the CID sources added. (Daily Mirror online)
