The “Witch Hunt” goes on at full pace!
Could any Reader of LankaWeb give a considered opinion on these magic numbers?
How were they made?
What were the projects?
Who were the project principals?
Who were responsible for above projects in Sri Lanka?
If they carried a 10% commission, the total project value ranges between US$100 – 500 billion.
Wow! Are Sri Lankan Roads Paved with Gold & Diamonds?
Mind Boggling Confusion!
The following articles have been circulated for about ten (10) days in media and heavily emphasized by the present government spokesmen.
Why no names are published of the holders of such bank accounts?
These are not minor figures, but gigantic by any language, in any country!
According to the statements, the Indian and British governments have volunteered to offer assistance to Sri Lankan authorities, to recover the funds.
Naturally, we may presume that neither government nor any major national entities had any dealings with this bonanza!
Today, all major banking countries such as Switzerland, Luxembourg, UAE, Cyprus, Channel Islands, Monaco, Andorra, Panama, have agreed to support investigations in to Money Laundering, Drugs dealings, Corruption and Illegal transfers.
Since these sums can never be legitimate earnings of any single living individual in any country, these massive amounts make Bill Gates, Carlos Slim, Warren Buffet look like pavement hawkers, and should ring bells within the administrations.
In a country such as Sri Lanka, to swindle a few hundred or even a few hundred thousand dollars is feasible. However to move US$ One (1) billion in Bribery & Corruption, considering a 10 or 20 percent commission illegally, needs to resurrect Einstein to re-invent the fine art of business Mathematics. Now we are looking at US$100 to 500 billion!
The likes of late Colonel Ghaddafi end-up without his testicles, and with Saif languishing in a desert jail.
Hosni Mubarak with his alleged US$30 or 40 billion is resting & recuperating in a prison hospital whilst his two sons who were arrested, are not known about their whereabouts.
Several African despots have parked themselves in China, whilst several Russian Oligarchs (who are beyond legalities) are jetting between their mansions in the UK and their private floating palaces.
If the following allegations are true and proven, the only sanctuary the alleged perpetrators might seek refuge is China. However under the present anti-corruption activity in China, the Chinese government cannot be seen to practice double-standards, and protect guilty senior government officials of another country.
Therefore it is safe to assume, if and when these alleged crimes are proven in an independent jurisdiction, possibly at the Hague, if found guilty, they may be incarcerated in a foreign country.
Following are the claims published in the Internet-;

Are there any official documents related to these claims?
Might some of the supporters of the present regime of My3 + RW + CBK shed some light?
