    According to law.. you have to justify the money.. Otherwise Black money. Thats the case here. Nothing else..

    Monday, 15 February 2010 01:49 PM

    The problem is not the money. It may be earned through illegal means or sent as expenses for certain 'operation' against the state. Mind that Danuna's mother tells that money belongs to SF. Why SF did put money in Danuna's mother's bank. It is upto CID to investigate for what this money is and who sent. It could be the tamil diaspora or another organization against SL working their asses off day and night to revenge the humiliating defeat of LTTE.

    Monday, 15 February 2010 04:56 PM

    They were also in the Prison

    Monday, 15 February 2010 01:53 PM

    good CID now you can check government ministers account you can collect more. why don't you do that the rule is same for all.

    Monday, 15 February 2010 01:54 PM

    All this is happening because SF had the guts to chalenge a corrupt government.

    Monday, 15 February 2010 04:58 PM

    what about the hambantota money that MR returned before the presidential elections first tern around.

    Tuesday, 16 February 2010 05:10 AM

    Black money? Oh yes, sri lankans know alot about black money. Look in the streets.

    Monday, 15 February 2010 11:51 AM

    It seems this news is wrong. Please check the figures and the monies were not in accounts but on lockers...

    Monday, 15 February 2010 11:54 AM

    Seems to be very rich...............

    Monday, 15 February 2010 11:54 AM

    That is his parents money. nothing to do with him.
    hope law visarada prof Peris will justify the arrest. Sri Lanka is going to be funny.

    Monday, 15 February 2010 11:57 AM

    Why this proud CID cannot check the accounts of so-called ministers

    Monday, 15 February 2010 11:59 AM

    what about the MIG deal? is he involved in that as well? Please investigate mroe

    Monday, 15 February 2010 11:59 AM

    Monday, 15 February 2010 12:00 PM

    What about Dhanuna's grand mother, great grand mother and so on ?

    Monday, 15 February 2010 12:03 PM

    Monday, 15 February 2010 12:04 PM

    what about SL Ministers???????

    Monday, 15 February 2010 12:05 PM

    First it was SF and now they are going for his family. and we call it the democratic republic of sri lanka!!!

    Monday, 15 February 2010 12:06 PM

    This is tuppence compared to the swindlers list from the house near waters edge.

    Monday, 15 February 2010 12:10 PM

    No body questioned Dr. Silvas poshe or politicians money spent on elections

    Monday, 15 February 2010 12:13 PM

    So what is the big problem if the money is legel?

    Monday, 15 February 2010 12:19 PM

    Why doesn’t the government check Bank accounts of all its Ministers & MPs. They will enough evidence of fraud of titanic proportions.

    Monday, 15 February 2010 12:25 PM

    This is PITTANCE compared to VAT money embezzlement. CID " WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT MONEY & FRAUDSTERS " ??????????????????????

    Monday, 15 February 2010 12:26 PM

    oops i have a bigger balance in my account !! you mean i will get a arrest warrant too .

    Monday, 15 February 2010 12:32 PM

    If someone had robbed, they need to be punished. But simply its in his monther’s account, it doesn’t mean that it belong to him.

    Monday, 15 February 2010 12:35 PM

    Dr. Kumara K. , Melbourne.

    Monday, 15 February 2010 12:36 PM

    or under the Bed

    Monday, 15 February 2010 12:36 PM

    This is peanuts. Most people have such sums for emergency. Lalith Wije

    Monday, 15 February 2010 12:36 PM

    The news seemingly misleading.
    Are the charges related to the 8m?
    8m rupees in his mother's bank account is an offence to take him into custody?

    Monday, 15 February 2010 12:38 PM

    Are these arrests made under "Mahinda Chinthana - 2"?

    Monday, 15 February 2010 12:40 PM

    What is this 8 million...
    If CID wants to find huge amounts of real Black Money...Check accounts of the Royal Family !.

    Monday, 15 February 2010 09:28 PM

    This report is incorrect. The actual amount collected by the CID is Rs.75 million!

    Monday, 15 February 2010 12:53 PM

    I got 8 million(leagaly earned) in my safe,I do not want to deposit in the bank incase of bankcrupsy. So is it illegale to keep mony in your house.Any lawey could answer my question !?

    Monday, 15 February 2010 12:55 PM

    Yes, What is the matter if the company is legal and authorities made a legal purchase order and if the goods recived in full. and the payment is made, where is the problem? my friends..

    Monday, 15 February 2010 12:58 PM

    wht cant check mervin silva account?

    Monday, 15 February 2010 01:01 PM

    So... you are not suppose to have 2 million + in your accounts if you are not with the government?

    Monday, 15 February 2010 01:04 PM

    If you can explain how you earn why worriy. Here SF and son in law has to explain how this money earned.

    Monday, 15 February 2010 01:16 PM

    Wow, very easy to do this but Very hard to get the Monies from Lalith Kotelawela and Wife and the Directors of Ceylinco, How Come?.

    Monday, 15 February 2010 01:18 PM

    Pandula, you are not suppose to keep money in Safe Lockers. a large sum of money has been found in a safe locker in a bank.

    Monday, 15 February 2010 01:18 PM

    So what's the fuss, if it not black money ??

    Monday, 15 February 2010 11:05 PM

    Daily Mirror print edition (16 Feb) accessed via the online page says 'Rs.75 million in four lockers'! But, the story online says 'Rs.8 million in two bank accounts.' Dear Editor, please correct either the online edition or the print edition - both cannot be right ...

    Monday, 15 February 2010 01:20 PM

    The Ministers ofcourse have unbelievable Immunity, I think every possible Government servant,and Public servant needs to be checked out too.

    Monday, 15 February 2010 01:20 PM

    What about the minister Rohitha Abeygunawardene, when he came to Politics, he was just a Driver for someone.

    Monday, 15 February 2010 01:22 PM

    I wonder how our CID is. Because, they have uncovered 6 + 2 Million from 2 accounts of Dhanuna's mother. Secondly how the educated Fort Magistrate issue arrest warrant? I am not a lawyer by profession. But anyone might arise these questions.

    Monday, 15 February 2010 01:25 PM

    check all ministers a/c

    Monday, 15 February 2010 11:31 PM

    Speculation to think whether the currencies were there already, or dumped forcibly?

    Monday, 15 February 2010 04:44 PM

    what evidence.... did u forget, the king and his henchmen relaxed the exchange controls sometime back?? .... those titanic amounts are floating somewhere above the swiss alps

    Monday, 15 February 2010 01:27 PM

    I have 5 and 4 in separate banks collecting interest for me. All saved from the UNP economic boom in 2002. So 9 million saved from two years from a currently active business.
    So the amount found in the accounts is not astronomical, it could be life savings.

    Monday, 15 February 2010 01:30 PM

    well done cid u are the world best criminal dep. in the world, god bless MIHINLAND before sri lanka

    Monday, 15 February 2010 04:50 PM

    Monday, 15 February 2010 01:32 PM

    stupid statement iz 6 ml iz a big amount better cid check all the govenment ministers account

    Monday, 15 February 2010 01:37 PM

    Even if the govt check bank accounts of ministers & mp's, cannot detect any money b'cos all money went out of sl.

    Monday, 15 February 2010 01:37 PM

    well it says the money was in an account.not a safe.

    Monday, 15 February 2010 04:54 PM

    If this is Banana Republic, You are a thirdclass citizen of a white country... ha haaa... Why are you worried about Banana Republic? Stay there and criticize them...

    Monday, 15 February 2010 04:55 PM
