Gammanpila questions new CB Governor's integrity

Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU) General Secretary Udaya Gammanpila today said they had no doubt about new Central Bank Governor Dr. Indrajit Coomaraswamy’s capabilities since he was an experienced and a qualified person, but they had questions about his integrity.

“He was charged in an insider trading case. Founder of the Galleon Group, an American-based investment fund management firm Raj Rajaratnam was jailed for 11-years in that case. In 2009, when the incident took place, our newly appointed Central Bank Governor was an adviser to the group. Further, he worked as a director of a subsidiary company of the Galleon Group,” Mr. Gammanpila said.

He claimed that Mr. Rajaratnam, who employed Dr. Coomaraswamy, was a person who funded the LTTE.

"The Government’s decision to appoint Dr. Coomaraswamy to replace former CB Governor Arjuna Mahendran is similar to exchanging ginger for chilli," Mr. Gammanpila said.

He said the 66-year-old Dr. Coomaraswamy would not be able to handle nationally responsible job because at that age he would lack the physical and mental fitness for it. (Piyumi Fonseka)

    If MR can apply dye on his hair n drink Red Bull n became the President of SL. Y cant Dr Coomaraswamy Be the Governer below MR's age

    Hesh Tuesday, 05 July 2016 07:19 PM

    My only concern regarding him is he helped draft the CEPA. Are we sure he is not under the pay roll of the Indian government?

    Johan Tuesday, 05 July 2016 07:19 PM

    Why this duck is not opening its mouth regarding the fraud he committed and also so much corruption done by his close associates of the previous regime

    You have Kerosene oil in your Brain.

    The God Father Tuesday, 05 July 2016 07:34 PM

    I have to question the integrity of Gamanpila's mother since she has given birth to a moron like him.

    Ajith Tuesday, 05 July 2016 07:35 PM

    The current Govornor was a close friend of Raj. He does not qualify on the fit and proper test. He should resign before it is late. Dr Coomaraswamy you have shielded information from the public.

    weera Tuesday, 05 July 2016 07:37 PM

    Gamanpila knows only one honest person. He is the former president Mahinda Rajapakse.

    Aquarius Tuesday, 05 July 2016 07:46 PM

    This man is really out of this world. Without trying to solve his own corruption and fraud issues, he is pointing the finger at someone else - just for diversion. He knows how to play the game

    Of all the people in the world Gammanpila questioning others honesty and integrity.Does this man have no sense of shame.This man is truly a guttersnipe in every sense of the word.At least now he must stop throwing stones given that he is living in a huge Glass House practically naked when it comes to honesty and accused of the lowest form of dishonesty and breach of trust.

    Don't worry , he is not mentally unstable like you and did not consume the same food what you did. You may be physically disabled at his age.

    Rajah Tuesday, 05 July 2016 07:52 PM

    Today people are working even in the 90's like the ex supreme court of judge of USA who died recently. 66 is relatively young and he is well fit. JR was President in his 80's.

    ala Tuesday, 05 July 2016 08:06 PM

    Please sort your problems first without talking nonsense to fool the people of SL.

    Manel Tuesday, 05 July 2016 08:19 PM

    Even people of the ilk of Dinesh Gunawardana commended this appointment. But this two-bit puny lawyer in the form of Mapila is questioning the appointment. What a JOKER!!!!!

    Amir Tuesday, 05 July 2016 08:33 PM

    A crook is talking about the new Central Bank governor. CB Governor was employed by Raj Rajaratnam as professional adviser. A crook always think others are crooks.

    If MR can be president at the age of 70, why cannot this person?
