The Criminal Investigation Department officials today found Rs. 65 million worth jewellery in a vault of a Colombo private bank that had not been declared by businessman Lalith Kotelawela and his wife, police spokesman SP Prishantha Jayakody said.
Dear God, Why didn't you put this man into the correct path all t]hese days.

May have kept the jewellery safe to take them when they go on the long journey to meet their "creator". After all they were supposed to be very religious and Philanthropic; wasn't they? Poor souls and the hoodwinked depositors.

"Money is the Root of All Evil" This is retribution.
shovini Tuesday, 05 October 2010 03:22 PM
Seems like the inromation is all wrong. Why cant Mrs. Kotelawala have jewellery. She could have inherited this and even ben given gifts of jewellery. We cannot judge until it is proven.

This is daylight robbery. Probably they forgot that they had this in the vault. The authorities should immediately liguidate this asset by getting a court order and distribute the money to the poor people who deposited their hard earned money in the Golden Key Company. It should be noted that I have mentioned "HARD EARNED MONEY OF THE POOR PEOPLE" and the small depositors should be paid off in full. I am speaking on behalf of the depositors and not a depositor with this company in any way as I am a prudent Banker who knows the risks that are tied up to high deposit rates.

Why do still smell "Politics" in this whole Kotalawela fiasco ??
lasith Tuesday, 28 September 2010 02:29 AM
It is only the tip of the ice-berg. After defrauding millions of rupees. It is up to the officials to see whether he has violated any undertakings given to the Supreme Court and if so severely punish him for false declarations. It is the same with other Directors as well. They have not declared their entire loot robbed from innocen depositers.

How can any one potray to the world and Sri Lankans at large as someone who is " a saint and a social worker " and accumelate such wealth . I can imagine if they had children. Oh my god Mrs Marcos is in the shade.

Well folks it seems he kept this as a last resort to bribe the Gods to accept him when it comes to that long journey. Any way I am a looser in F&G but where is the law of this country. This government seems not to care or take any action for inocent people who have been cheated by so may crooks.In which part of the world can we hope for some relief to our problems as nothing will be done in this land of Sri Lanka. May we all some day attain "HELL"
