Ada Derana, Esana are lying – Thilini Priyamali (Video)

Published

on

Colombo businesswoman – Thilini Priyamali has accused media stations such as  ‘Ada Derana’ and ‘Esana’ of publishing distorted news about her without checking facts.

In a voice clip, she was referring to media reports over a court case involving her, which was taken up by the Colombo High Court today (05).

She explains that the particular case was filed by one Samith Anurudda, who was her boyfriend back in 2013, over the sale of a vehicle which had gone awry.

Noting that her ex-boyfriend is now demanding a sum of Rs. 6.8 million in a case filed at the High Court, she points out that the figure of 08 million reported by these media stations is wrong.

“I didn’t appear before the court because I was ill. The sum is Rs. 6.8 million… Not  08 million. Why is the responsible media of the country lying like this?,” she asks.

“Under the guise of reporting, they are portraying me as an offender,” she adds.

The voice clip of Thilini Priyamali is as follows :

Thilini Priyamali hospitalized ; case adjourned

The Colombo High Court Judge Adithya Patabendige today (June 05) ordered a case filed before the Colombo High Court against Thilini Priyamali, the businesswoman who is accused of massive financial fraud, to be taken up for hearing on August 11.

The order was issued when the case against Priyamali over the misappropriation of Rs. 08 million, which was obtained from a person in the Matara area promising to provide a vehicle, was taken up for hearing.

At the time, the defendant Thilini Priyamali did not appear before the courts, and her attorney stated before the courts that her client is receiving treatment at a private hospital in Colombo due to an illness.

Accordingly, the judge who ordered the case to be adjourned until August 11, also ordered the defending party to appear before courts on the relevant date with an accepted medical report of the defendant.

The relevant case has been filed by the Attorney General, accusing that an amount of Rs. 8 million, which was obtained by the accused in the year 2010, promising an individual in the Matara area a vehicle, had been misappropriated.

By

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.
