Government to brief Parliament on alleged offshore accounts of MR

Mahinda MRThe Government today said it will brief Parliament on the alleged offshore accounts of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Leader of the House Lakshman Kiriella said that the Prime Minister will need some time to gather the information related to the accounts in order to brief Parliament.

He was responding to a question raised by Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake on statements made recently by cabinet spokesman Dr. Rajitha Senaratne on the alleged offshore accounts of Rajapaksa and his family.

Dissanayake told Parliament that Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe must make a clear statement to Parliament on the offshore accounts.

He said that while Senaratne had revealed details of the bank accounts another Government Parliamentarian had claimed he had seen the account details.

Dr. Rajitha Senaratne had said this month that the United States Federal Reserve is assisting Sri Lanka in the probe on large scale offshore accounts managed by key members of the former Government.

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.

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

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

  2. How many years more you need to finish the work?
    Stupid Idiots , you have no guts to prosecute any one.
    Shame on these people who talk big and cannot do anything,

  3. The beloved leader Rajapakse said that he has no bank account s in the USA.Nothing was mentioned about the 3.4Billion US Dollars in Rapakse names in Dubai.i

  4. US Federal Reserve Bank is owned by small group of private bankers who fund wars and killings around the world. US Fed has never been audited since it was established. We Srilankans must know this whole corruption saga is played for just one thing. That is to bring Srilanka in line to the arms traders of US and compensate them for losses made from cessation of war.
