The complaint said that after the Central Bank sealed the institution on 10.07.2020, the owner has defrauded the depositors of Rs.9,910 million.

Those who have lost their money have formed an organization to seek justice and recover their money, its secretary retired Army officer B.R.Dissanayake said.

The complaint has been made to the Inspector General of Police as per the instructions of Justice Minister Dr. Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe.
