Chanuka Ratwatte and four others were arrested by the FCID this morning in connection with an alleged financial fraud of Rs. 4.6 billion at the Entrust Securities PLC.

The Central Bank took over Entrust Securities PLC this January and handed it over to the National Savings Bank as the management agent, to restructure the troubled primary dealer.

The Central Bank however did not directly admit uncovering of any fraudulent activities by the company/top management but said it was taken over to ensure the credibility of the government securities market.

Chanuka Ratwatte functioned as an Executive Director of Entrust Securities PLC.

    And every time someone is taken in for questioning they call it a 'witch hunt'. The amazing thing is some naive people believe this.

    Sounds very much like UTI Ltd; where the main accused left SL to avoid 7 yr prison term for 6.7m fraud and still at large. No action!?

    The amount involved is so colossal that the public cannot fathom the extent of corruption that has being prevalent in the last decade. I only hope we can recover at least 25 percent of the loot.

    With so many thieves in the politico-economic hierarchy under the former regime, it was sheer luck that the country managed to survive.
