US Federal Reserve assisting Lanka in probe on funds

US Federal ReserveThe United States Federal Reserve is assisting Sri Lanka in the probe on large scale offshore accounts managed by key members of the former Government.

Cabinet spokesman Dr. Rajitha Senaratne said that the Federal Reserve has informed Sri Lanka that it needs time to gather information related to the offshore accounts maintained by the former Government members.

“When a US Dollar is exchanged in any country it is registered at the US Federal Reserve. They have told us they will submit all the required information but it will take some time,” he said.

Dr. Rajitha Senaratne said that once the information is obtained from the US Federal Reserve the Government will take the next step.

He says there are three major offshore accounts maintained by former Government members, including a member of the family of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. Ahmm The US federal Reserve is a like a private entity and there is NO governmental oversight!!
    And they can not oblige Dr.Rajitha or the GOSL in anyway

  2. Dentist Rajitha Senarathna has not done any thing for the development of Sri Lanka. He kept an underage girl in his home but no court case. People will vote Rajapaksa because he eradicated terrorism from Sri Lanka. This Dentist visited LTTE Terrorists and encouraged them even during the war time. It is not a surprise that this dishonest politician is angry with Rajapaksa.
