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.
