Voice Against Corruption Questions Rajapakshe’s 22 Million Dollars from Hong Kong

The Voice Against Corruption yesterday (11) questioned about the future actions taken by the FCID in regard to the 22 Million US Dollars found in an account of Hong Kong and Shanghai bank.

Convener of the organization Mr. Wasantha Samarasinghe has held a media briefing in Colombo stating that the details related to the case had been requested under the Information Act, but has not been received so far.

He reminded that the Police Financial Crimes Investigation Division went to Hong Kong to obtain details of the relevant bank account in December 2016, and nearly two years have been passed since.

Mr. Wasantha Samarasinghe, who emphasized that these currency were commissions retrieved by the Rajapakshes during their rule, questioned what are the legal actions taken against those who are involved. He also pointed out that the 22 Million US Dollars should be delivered to the country immediately.

He stated that if it does not happen, the Police Financial Crimes Investigation Division will face a suspicion whether they too are attempting to supress information regarding the case, and requested not to attempt to frame the country.
