    Yes yes...the Clan now does gold washing business...the other 310Kg was washed away to their bank accounts..................

    Democract Wednesday, 20 October 2010 01:09 PM

    How much of gold did the new friends of the LTTE share from the total quantity captured?

    jaki Wednesday, 20 October 2010 01:14 PM

    should be more than 110 kg of golds.before handing it to central bank top people must have consumed it lot as usual.

    Concerned Citizen Wednesday, 20 October 2010 01:29 PM

    Absolutely right Malkanthi!
    Any right thinking government will ensure it is used only for the development of the North.
    Wonder, how much went into the pockets of high ups!

    Nandimithra Wednesday, 20 October 2010 01:30 PM

    For obvious reasons if you see how the past has been since Hambantota was nearly "helped" but money returned by court order.

    hehe Wednesday, 20 October 2010 01:36 PM

    Do you know how much was there?

    Heman Wednesday, 20 October 2010 02:08 PM

    SF confirmed they found 200KG how it got reduced to 110KG where is the Central bank proof that they received Gold not brass or steel. Gold would have gone under the table proof needed to the public and their peoples servants appointedby the public now proove that

    Heman Wednesday, 20 October 2010 02:14 PM

    One Ministers giving some odd figger can you excepted? No it's the duty of the government to disclose the details tey recovered amount and handed over to the CB With proof. Then only you can se the dance SF will tell every thing thats why they try to kill him SAPA WEWA MUNTA

    JAMES Thursday, 21 October 2010 02:26 AM

    may curse fall upon those got rich quickly overnight.
    money should go to rebilitation of those who lost arms legs disabled or kith and kins loved ones of who made ultimate sacrifice save our motherland.

    Hemal de Silva Thursday, 21 October 2010 02:28 AM

    Who is valuing and weighing them?

    Mifaz Thursday, 21 October 2010 07:03 AM

    I dont think it was just 110 ... maybe somebody missed a few zeros ?? :D

    thusi Wednesday, 20 October 2010 03:24 PM

    Why Only North? Sri Lanka is One Country....Then Why SL Govt. spending SL tax payers money to Develop North And East ? These money are the tax taken from Sinhala, Tamil and Muslim people of the whole country....

    thusi Wednesday, 20 October 2010 03:24 PM

    According to your reports?

    thusi Wednesday, 20 October 2010 03:26 PM

    Good one....mohammed is saying 420kg...Shall we take the average?....mohammed & oman - Pls stop spreading lies....

    mihlar Wednesday, 20 October 2010 10:25 AM

    This includes the gold of poor muslims who had to vacate Jafna over night.

    oman Wednesday, 20 October 2010 05:12 PM

    what if i say yes?

    malithlk Wednesday, 20 October 2010 10:26 AM

    Must be More than 110 Kg. WHat happen to the others.

    malkanthi Wednesday, 20 October 2010 10:30 AM

    We dont realise that items such as these contain tears, heartaches, blood, hatred, death, curse. Utilising them would bring curse upon this land!! Since this belonging to the people in the North, use them for their benefits only as one cannot compensate for lost lives.

    spark Wednesday, 20 October 2010 10:34 AM

    This is only the legal quantity. How about the quantity that has been shared amongst the top?

    sandman Wednesday, 20 October 2010 10:38 AM

    Only 110kg WTF !!!!!

    unethical guy Wednesday, 20 October 2010 10:39 AM

    this should be given to army heroes who liberated the country

    roshan raz Wednesday, 20 October 2010 10:41 AM

    it is not gold. it is blood and flesh of our own sri lankan people. tamils and muslims mostly.

    mohammed Wednesday, 20 October 2010 10:46 AM

    It's 420Kgs according to early reports. 3/4 gone missing?

    Mushi Wednesday, 20 October 2010 10:51 AM

    Is there anyway to give these back to those who lost these as ransom to LTTE?? Govt should find out.

    lankaputha Wednesday, 20 October 2010 10:52 AM

    Is this the 10 % ? or the 90 %?

    Ramzeel Wednesday, 20 October 2010 10:52 AM

    How much has evaporated into thin air because its such a long time and most would be imitation gold taking into consideration the way things happen in Sri Lanka.

    pd Wednesday, 20 October 2010 10:54 AM

    good move by GOSL. now others wl hv to shut up or cook up another story. utilize this for all those who were affected by the LTTE -army families / northern tamils /border villages etc... this is a very positive move.

    oman Wednesday, 20 October 2010 11:01 AM

    they recovered 200 kg from the LTTE...what happened to the rest ?

    Nandimithra Wednesday, 20 October 2010 11:03 AM

    How are we to know if this was all - no accountability as usual.
    Considering the way LTTE operated, this looks insignificant as even from the JVP (considered small-time Vs. LTTE) there was more gold recovered by Ranjan Wijeratne,

    Oyage sudu kella Wednesday, 20 October 2010 11:07 AM

    While travelling to Jaffna sometime back I witnessed how a Tamil lady (Canadian ppt holder) was compelled to remove her gold bangles and give the LTTE border police. She was questioning them as to why she has to pay to visit her native place. KP's gold is what was robbed from his own tribe. Paavam for those people - Lottery for SL Govt.

    Tin Wednesday, 20 October 2010 11:08 AM

    Why our people always have to be this negative on everything?

    Anver Wednesday, 20 October 2010 11:09 AM

    Really? It took so long for someone to say something what happened to this gold and hopefully the facts and figures are correct?!

    Jaz Wednesday, 20 October 2010 08:37 PM

    The rest is shared by the top Army cream, and now government wants those Army fellows to say something against SF. Otherwise, they too could get SF treatment.

    deepal Wednesday, 20 October 2010 11:12 AM

    110 KG OR 1100 KG.
    WHEN IT COMES TO GOLD OR KP'S ASSETS WHY THE GOVT IS HIDDING FROM THE PUBLIC?.
    IS IT BECAUSE,IT HAS DO WITH "NATIONAL SECURITY"?
    SUBA ANAGATHYAK.

    Ravana Wednesday, 20 October 2010 11:12 AM

    In the "process" some of it must be vaporizing !

    Ibnu Batuta Wednesday, 20 October 2010 11:23 AM

    Only in kilos...!!! I thought in tons.

    Amawaka Wednesday, 20 October 2010 11:36 AM

    why all these people itching about some missing gold

    somebody might have taken the rest


    so whats your problem after all it is not your gold

    amal Wednesday, 20 October 2010 11:41 AM

    kidding.... gold, more than 200kg found wellamulikkal....

    Nayana, Wednesday, 20 October 2010 11:47 AM

    This is really sad. These belonged to people who worked hard and had to sacrifice a lot. I only hope it will be put to good use and not end up in the pockets of our corrupt officials. It is unfortunate that there is so much of dishonesty prevailing in our country.

    Hamzie-Doha Wednesday, 20 October 2010 11:57 AM

    Its defenitly not 110kg, Its more than that according to SF.

    Well said Malkanthi. These stories should not be published Internationally. Its shows, how inhuman is our politicians are. Even my dog will not have a bone from these corrupted & disgusting politicians. As they have robbed the entire nation's (Buddhist, Christians,Muslims & Tamils) wealth and enjoying. This will definetly curse them and their generations.

    chryshan K Wednesday, 20 October 2010 12:03 PM

    what happened to other 2500 KGs of Gold found in a container. Probabaly thats the reason KP is in full of luxury. If he is not treated properly he will disclose who's private central bank is having the gold.

    Holman Wednesday, 20 October 2010 12:06 PM

    Can already see some TOP TOP guys and their families decorated with these gold.

    victoria Wednesday, 20 October 2010 11:58 PM

    Do not ask theese questions. It becauseSF asked such questions he had ended up in Welikade

    Nandimithra Thursday, 21 October 2010 05:26 AM

    Yes it was 69 million but the interest was not repaid !

    Josh Wednesday, 20 October 2010 12:37 PM

    1 year and 5 months later this happens!!!

    brings out serious doubts on this move and the delay!!!

    Hasiya Wednesday, 20 October 2010 12:52 PM
