Colombo Chief Magistrate Prasanna Alwis yesterday (12) ordered the Inland Revenue Department to hand over the income tax reports of directors of Onmax DT private company, which allegedly engaged in pyramid schemes, to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID).
The Magistrate issued the order after considering a request by the CID.
If the Onmax DT Directors Sampath Sandaruwan, Athula Indika, Dhananjaya Jayanath, Saranga Jayanath and Gayashan pay income taxes, the court ordered all these reports to be given to the CID immediately.
Earlier, the court issued an order prohibiting the sale of lands and property owned by Onmax DT Director Sampath Sandaruwan.
The investigations were carried out by the CID after it was revealed that Rs.790 million was deposited in the accounts owned by company directors which were banned by the Central Bank of Sri Lanka.
