24 May 2018 07:02 pm - 49     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


According to a further report (B report) filed into the magisterial inquiry over the Bond scam by the prosecution today, it was revealed that UPFA Parliamentarian Dayasiri Jayasekara had received a cheque of Rs.1 million from Walt & Row Associates-a Perpetual Treasuries Ltd related group company in 2015. 

According to a statement given by a police officer to the CID, who was attached to Mr. Jayasekara’s security in 2015, it was revealed that, on June 13, 2015 Mr. Jayasekara had asked his security officer, Amila Kumara Herath, to encash a cash cheque (Bearing number 566635) which was issued by Walt & Row Associates (under the current account number 0073900773)

According to the statement of Mr. Herath, he then had encashed the cheque from a Kurunegala Bank and subsequently the Money ‘in cash’ was handed over to Mr. Jayasekara.

Due to the suspicious nature in which Perpetual Treasuries Ltd had transacted with its group companies (W.M. & Mendis and Walt & Row Associates) to encash cheques which had been ultimately lasted with third parties, the prosecution also obtained a court order to the Chief Executive Officer of Walt & Row Associates to provide details about cheque transactions relating to such nature.

A Parliamentarian received ‘cash cheque’ from PTL related company: ASG Kodagoda

Additional Solicitor General Yasantha Kodagoda today said a cash cheque of ‘Walt and Row Associates’ - a group company of Perpetual Treasuries Ltd- amounting to Rs. 1 million, had been encashed by a security officer of a Parliamentarian.

The name of the Parliamentarian which was stated in the B report was not revealed in open courts by the Prosecution.

This was revealed according to a statement given by a police officer to the CID recently, who was attached to the security of the so called Politician.

Elaborating on the suspicious nature in which Perpetual Treasuries Ltd had transacted with its group companies (W.M. & Mendis and Walt & Row Associates) to encash cheques which had been ultimately lasted as money to third parties, ASG Kodagoda revealed another encashment of a cash cheque in similar manner.

ASG Kodagoda said that the investigation had accidentally revealed another similar cheque encashment where an employee of a professional services providing company (Certis Lanka) was interviewed by the CID.

This cheque was also amounting to Rs. 1 million belonging to W.M. & Mendis- a PTL related group company.

It was explained that on behalf of W.M. & Mendis this person had encashed the cheque from a reputed Bank and subsequently the money in cash had been handed over to a third party at the car park of the Bank premises.

The name of this third party was also not revealed in open proceedings by the ASG.

At the onset of the inquiry, ASG Kodagoda also sought necessary court orders in relation to certain details of the secondary market transactions of PTL.

He explained that it was not only about how PTL operated in the Primary Market but also how it dealt within the bond related secondary market.

It was explained that every primary dealer like PTL had to maintain records about their secondary market dealings in both physical nature (as paper works) and in the scriptless computer system contemporaneously with the Central Bank's computer system (RTGS).

This computer system that primary dealers operate in relation with secondary market deals is installed and maintained generally by a company called Lanka Finance Services Bureau.

In view of identifying whether PTL had fed its secondary transactions properly into the CBSL scriptless system via its computer system provided by LFSB, Fort Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne directed LFSB to provide all details relating to secondary market transactions of PTL including ‘SWIFT messages’ from January 2015 to February 2018.

The Magistrate also directed Geoffrey Aloysius who was the second share holder of PTL to provide all the physical documents that it maintained during all bond transactions to the prosecution. (By Shehan Chamika Silva)

    Do we see the hidden hand of Master player RW to trap all those rogue elements who parade as angles of virtue in front of gullible voters? At this rate the public will doubt every big talker and we may have a reason to do so. There goes one of 16.

We appreciate if your esteem paper publish the hansard report of this man which was stated by GL perise while this man was acting as his private secretary. If my memory is correct then GL peris was the minister of textiles.

    Cheers to DM yes its this paper that reported what that innocent third son of MR oh in 2005 said We had no house we lived in govt bungalows Most of our MP's are rogues

    Lankan Friday, 25 May 2018 09:09 AM

    Wow deal was done in 1st call, big talkers. Put them behind the bar.

    TJ Friday, 25 May 2018 09:29 AM

    If there are solid evidences to frame a charge sheet against those who accepted donations o rbribes, then why can't the ASG reveal their name. Keeping things in suspense would help the investigating authorities to sweep it under the carpet, if necessity arises in future.

    Thilak Friday, 25 May 2018 09:36 AM

    We want to see who much was paid by Aloysius and Co to MR and his saintly rogues. Wait and see more will be reveled soon. Biggest monies were paid to MR and the clan and that is why MR never utter a word against Arjuna Mahendran or Aloysius.

    Casanova Friday, 25 May 2018 09:38 AM

    All are crooks and all involved in this , believe me, probably a cut would have been given to Rajapakshes too. Aren't there any genuine patriots in this country with ethics?

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 25 May 2018 10:35 AM

    Unfortunately no.

    Sanath Friday, 25 May 2018 10:30 AM

    It is disgusting and stinking. All appears to be either rougues or having shady dealings.

    vt Friday, 25 May 2018 01:47 PM

    Now you know the reason for his political jump.

    Afterall RW is a brain.

    Buddhist Friday, 25 May 2018 02:42 PM

    At last Dayasiri has joined the correct group JO.

    dickie bird Friday, 25 May 2018 02:55 PM

    Were selected Politicians and others used to encash cheques funnel the money back to PTL ?? Its possible on a commission basis.

    Buddhist Friday, 25 May 2018 03:01 PM

    Dayasiri at last has joined the appropriate group SLPP where all the are!.

    Alex Friday, 25 May 2018 04:17 PM

    This Joker was the one who was throwing the biggest stones at RK. Now we know why :)

    Gayan Friday, 25 May 2018 10:27 PM

    Citizen Solo Saturday, 26 May 2018 08:32 AM

    Let's bring the guillotine and a French revolution to Sri Lanka. Masses awake! why are you so blind to the fact that all the ministers are looting our country dry, and endangering the future generations. These beggars become multi-trillionaires at the expense of the country. Remember the hypocritical assertion by MR: Palavanita maathru bhumi. Dhevenita maathru bhumi Thunvenitath Mathru bhumi. Disgusting SOBS!

    CITIZEN Monday, 28 May 2018 09:12 AM

    Dayasiri says he did not know who gave the cheque but he cashed it (and enjoyed!). Is there any difference to RK saying "he did not know who gifted him the luxury apartment but he enjoyed living in it???" This bloody crook behaved like a Saint accusing others in the Bond Scam!!!
