The Colombo Fort Magistrate today summoned Seylan Bank Chairman and former Attorney General Mohan Pieris to appear in Court on July 24 in connection with a case filed by a bank customer that funds in her account had been misappropriated. Summons were issued on the former AG due to his position as the Chairman of the Bank

In her complaint to the Colombo Fraud Investigations Bureau, Shirani Anoma Dullewa of Nawala said she opened an account at Seylan Bank by depositing US$22659 and Rs.105,580 on October 4, 1995.

The complainant alleged that though she had asked the bank to reveal the details regarding the dividends on the deposited money when she visited the bank on February 17, 2006, the bank had failed do so.

She alleged that the officers attached to the Bank’s Fort branch and administrators of the bank at the time might have misappropriated the money and requested for an inquiry into the matter.

    Very good. He prostituted the AGs Dept to the Govt. Then went to Geneva and lied about Ekneligoda. His wife is a friend of Cabraal. Served on the board of a company connected to him.
