JVP to go to courts against 'insider trading'

E-mail Print
The JVP will take legal action against the authorities of the state institutions that used public funds for dubious inside trading at the Colombo Stock Exchange.
JVP MP Sunil Handunetti told a news conference today that they have decided on this course of action as EPF funds have been used to purchase shares of loss making Grain Elevators Ltd where Rs 1.24 billion has been invested to purchase 10,000 shares at a rate Rs 245. He said the value of a share had gone down to 36 today.

He said the investment guide lines of the EPF has been violated by engaging in this transaction as it is only possible to invest on government securities as per the said guidelines.

Mr. Handunettis said ETF had also been used for insider dealings while the National Savings Bank (NSB) had also engaged in the same. He said this had put the bank in a vulnerable situation. He therefore questioned as to what would happen to the bank if the depositors start withdrawing their deposits shortly.( Yohan Perera)

Those involved in the share deals are politically connected powerfully. It is this 'immunity' that makes them indulge in such corrupt acts. Do our courts have the guts to convict them.

In any other country, purported to be democratic, the corrupt practices adopted by those in power, would have brought down the Government in office by now. We, Sri Lankans, are (un)fortunate to have a weak opposition which always limits its protest to media conferences, at which they solemnly express their future (?) plans. They are incapable of going any further. Long Live the Mahinda regime!

Quite! Sir Politically Illiterate. It's the people, who rightly or wrongly, intoxicated by high decibel speeches and promises went like zombies and put a cross for self-destruction. The fruits of which we see now.

Siri,

I cannot disagree with you on that. Then no pint in blaming others. What you sow, you reap.
You cannot sow wheat and expect rice!

All the Private sectors employees and semi government employees should get together and fight against this type of misconducts. if CB governor is a honest man, he should immediately step down and support for an independent enquiry conduct by some authority.

NSB problem seems to be over with corrective action in the nick of time. But if EPF funds are invested creating a risk of lossess it is bad. Let's go ahead with this action.

"Risk of loss"!!! THE MONIES ARE ALREADY LOST! THE SHARES WERE BOUGHT AT 245 AND ARE AT 36 BUCKS TODAY! No doubt all the providts are sitting safely in multiple swiss bank accounts with all the Mahinda bros taking their usual cuts! The Sinhalay village idiots will continue to support this regime for a rice packet and sume cheap booz come election time.

"Badu husbandge, Nadu Nonage". So, as usual, nothing will happen. Anyway, kudos to JVP for standing up to the common man's interest against the mighty highly corrupt powerful government unlike the main opposition party which only talks about such things and then keeps quiet.

Before the IPO, Solflogic issued shares at Rs. 7 in a private placement. No broker told the public about this. Public should never trust the brokers as they are also take part in this racket.

Investigations should be made and news revealed on who the sellers of the shares were and the buying and selling brokers of Grain elevators share @ 245 by the EPF.
