Colombo Chief Magistrate Prasanna Alwis issued orders to the Land Registrar’s Office yesterday (04) prohibiting the alienation, sale and transfer of properties belonging to Sampath Sandaruwan, one of the board members of Onmax D.T.

It was revealed in the court that the value of the properties owned by Sandaruwan is Rs.630 million.

The Magistrate issued the orders to the land registrars of Matara, Kalutara, Hambantota and Kadawatha.

After the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) received information that eight lands belonging to the suspect were transferred to his wife and 12 lands to his friend on the same day, the court issued orders prohibiting the transfer of land.

Accordingly, six lands in Matara, two lands in Hambantota, 10 lands in Kalutara and two lands in Kadawatha were prohibited from being transferred.

The CID informed the court that according to the bank account records, Rs.790 million was found in the accounts banned by the Central Bank of Sri Lanka.

Accordingly, it was revealed that Rs.550 million was found in 16 bank accounts of Sampath Sandaruwan, Rs.20 million in the bank account of Athula Indika, Rs.110 million in the bank account of Dhananjaya Jayanath, Rs.180 million in the bank account of Saranga Jayanath and Rs.20 million in the bank account of Gayashan.

An investigation called Block Chain Analysis was conducted together with the Financial Intelligence Unit of the Central Bank and it was found that the last account (wallet) through which this money flows is under the name of a Sri Lankan and not an Australian.

The CID said that this company has earned 100 million US Dollars from illegal pyramid deals. The court has already issued orders prohibiting six directors of the company from travelling abroad.

The Court of Appeal has decided for the writ petition filed by former Sri Lanka Navy Commander Wasantha Karannagoda over the alleged abduction of 11 youths in 2008 and 2009, to be taken up for hearing before a five-member judge bench.

The former Navy Chief has filed the relevant petition seeking an order preventing the hearing of a case filed before the Colombo High Court against him and several others, related to the alleged abduction of 11 youths in Colombo and its suburbs in the 2008 and 2009.

Accordingly, the petition will be taken up for hearing before a five-member judge bench comprising Justices Menaka Wijesundera, Sampath B. Abeykoon, Mayadunne Corea and Chamath Morais on September 25, 2024.

Rulers can’t decide whether country isn’t bankrupt anymore – Sajith

Published

By

Opposition leader Sajith Premadasa has slammed the government, saying that rulers themselves cannot decide if the country is bankrupt any longer.

He said that making the relevant  decision is up to international rating agencies, and they are yet to find the country eligible to be so.

“When the debt repayment system is prepared, the international rating companies such as Fitch, Moody’s, and Standard and Poor’s, will use the financial data to declare whether our country is bankrupt or not because our country has entered into a debt repayment system,” he pointed out. 

“One of the reasons for the decline of this country is the deception, desperation and trickery of the people. The people of a bankrupt country should pay attention to the information and data provided by international financial rating agencies which decide whether the country is bankrupt or not,” he added.

Mr. Premadasa was speaking after donating smart classroom equipment to St. John’s College, Kalutara yesterday (June 24).
