Court rejects request by Moonesinghe to travel overseas for treatment

The Fort Magistrate’s court today rejected a request by former Litro Gas chairman Shalila Moonesinghe to travel overseas for medical treatment.

Moonesinghe is in remand over the hacking of a Taiwanese bank.

Moonesinghe was arrested by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) 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.

Litro Gas is a Government owned gas company.
