Popular and veteran actress Sangeetha Weeraratne has been questioned by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) for almost five hours yesterday (07) in connection with the ongoing investigations into large-scale financial frauds committed by Thilini Priyamali.

The CID said Ms. Weeraratne is likely to be summoned again since she had remained silent without answering when she was questioned about a certain video footage.

Sangeetha has been interrogated mainly on her relationship with Priyamali as well as the transactions they have done together.

Meanwhile, the CID had interrogated popular and veteran actress Semini Iddamalgoda for four hours and recorded a statement for having close relations with Priyamali.

Another new actress has also been summoned to the CID over the investigations into Priyamali but she has not reported to the CID yet.

The CID officers are also looking into Rs.10.5 million allegedly given by Priyamali to a couple of popular TV presenters of Derana TV to buy a house.

This couple is also to be summoned to the CID for questioning.

Meanwhile, the CID questioned and recorded statements from former minister and veteran actor Jeevan Kumaratunga and his wife for almost five hours last Saturday.

The officers had focused on the relationship between Priyamali and Kumaratunga’s family members and the production of a film.

The CID revealed that several members of his family are to be questioned in the future as well.

The Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has selected Kristalina Georgieva to serve as IMF Managing Director for a second five-year term starting on October 1, 2024.

The appointment comes ahead of the start of the fund’s spring meetings in Washington next week.

Georgieva, who has been in the role since the autumn of 2019, was the sole candidate for the position. However, it was only after European leaders signalled that they would endorse her last month that her candidacy was assured.

In a statement, the coordinators of the Executive Board, Mr. Afonso S. Bevilaqua and Mr. Abdullah F. BinZarah has said, “Looking ahead, the Board welcomes Ms. Georgieva’s ongoing emphasis on issues of macroeconomic and financial stability, while also ensuring that the Fund continues to adapt and evolve to meet the needs of its entire membership. It recognizes her focus on strengthening the Fund’s support to its members through effective policy advice, capacity development and financing. The Board looks forward to continuing to work closely with the Managing Director.”

“I am deeply grateful for the trust and support of the Fund’s Executive Board, representing our 190 members, and honored to continue to lead the IMF as Managing Director for a second five-year term,” Ms. Georgieva has said.

The Bulgarian national has served as Managing Director since October 1, 2019. The Managing Director is the chief of the IMF’s operating staff and Chair of the Executive Board. The Managing Director is assisted by four Deputy Managing Directors in overseeing the Fund’s operations, which serve its membership through about 3,100 staff.
