FCID gets green-light to record statement from Cabraal

The Police Financial Crimes Investigations Division (FCID) was today given the green-light to record a statement from former Central Bank Governor Ajith Nivard Cabraal over the alleged misappropriation of Government funds.

The Colombo Fort Magistrate’s Court agreed to a request from the FCID to record the statement related to the investigations on the misappropriation of Rs 600 million.

FCID sought permission to record the statement and investigate his bank accounts.

The alleged misappropriation is said to have taken place when the former Government made an unsuccessful bid for Sri Lanka to host the 2018 Commonwealth Games. (Colombo Gazette)
