    It does not sound right that this CEO had all the power in his hand to approve/authorize such large transactions. Surely there has to be bigger fish to be netted in.

    In Sri Lanka small fries are put in high positions and given all the power to make deals as long as the money tingles down the line. The reason is that when matters are exposed the large fish scoots away making the small fry to take the fall.
