The relative of the former Chairman of Litro gas Shalila Moonesinghe has been arrested in connection to the ongoing investigations over the hacking of a bank in Taiwan.
The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) arrested Moonesinghe’s relative in at Kalubowila.
Moonesinghe was arrested by the CID earlier after US$1.1 million from the Far Eastern International Bank in Taiwan was found in his personal bank account.
Far Eastern International Bank was hacked by means of a computer virus and some US$60 million was wired to the accounts of the suspects at a Sri Lanka bank. (Colombo Gazette)
