Are US$1.1 billion or 10 or 50 billion discovered in Dubai Banks belong to Sri Lankans?
Posted on March 21st, 2015

Prof. Hudson McLean

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-;

Out of $50 Billion Stolen by Rajapakshas Government identified 20% ( $10 Billion) Friday, 20 March 2015 – 12:47 AM SL Time http://www.lankanewspapers.com/news/2015/3/93014_space.html

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?

    The amount of zeros added on is stunning to say the least !
    Special Effects Team of new illegal govt overdoing their Act ?

  2. callistus Says:

    No,No you got it wrong. This is the total of all accounts in Dubai banks. They belong to thousands of people from all over the world.

  3. Christie Says:

    Namaste: These monies came from massive Chinese projects. But majority non Indian of the island are not aware of the fact Chinese Nationals are punished for bribes and corruption including death penalty. Presidential election was handled by Indian Imperialists and the propaganda machine was part of their activities. All promises, proposals and propaganda was carried out by the Indian Empire as they do in all elections since 1951. This time Third Eye (RAW) was transparent and open as India has come out with its military and Media power. Emperor Modi congratulated Sirisena during the middle of the counting vote. There are a few non Indians from the island who have made a few dollars in the Middle East. So it is simple to say that their money belongs to the former members of the former President. Jai Hind.

  4. L Perera Says:

    Like someone recently said – If Sri Lankans can generate the claimed Mega Dollars, there would be no need to seek aid from the World Bank and IMF etc. Only “air brainers” can think otherwise.

  5. Ratanapala Says:

    This out put is part of Avamangala’s lie machine. So far not a single misappropriation or the exact location of supposed to be stashed monies have been found.

    It is rumoured that Lalith Athulathmudali’s stashed monies are now with Ravi Karunanayakam. Yahapalanaya needs to investigate.

  6. crobe Says:

    This is nothing but a ploy to win the parliamentary elections in April and to divert attention from the CB governor. Then, back to business as usual. If the new government wants to build some credibility, they need to investigate the bond scandal first. But, we all know that is not going to happen. The job of sweeping that under the rug has been given to 3 party loyalists/classmates of the PM and Harsha.

    Did anyone here about the new cabinet appointments? Now, we would have 44 ministers, 28 deputy ministers and 19 state ministers for a total of 91 ministers. You can put lipstick on a pig but its still a pig.

  7. Nimal Says:

    I just can’t understand all this misinformation about vast sums stashed abroad in billions. For instance every bit of money I have in my business account is has to be accountable and tax paid on the earnings that is in the account. As a proper Colombian and admirer of the Colonial type I am happy to pay my taxes knowing that that my tax will be used to the benefit of all, never try to doge it that indicate that one is crooked and greedy. It is painful to some extent but is a must. With respect to my NRFC in SL is a pain because the system is so stupid, they keep writing to me and expect an answerer as if I live in SL.Our idiots in our ammage darmadeepya can’t fathom that the people who have a NRFC lives abroad. When I go there next I will withdraw and spend the money, money kept for an emergency like a funeral of a loved one or to help a brother or sister in an medical emergency. We are sadly penalized by rules of that utterly idiotic country.
    People who get into politics just to rob the poor country are truly cruel and no right to call themselves as people of any religion and their days of reckoning is not far off.They undermine the well being of the economies of the world, wellbeing
    of all the people of the planet.
    There are so many rumours about stolen money so there can’t be a smoke without a fire. Hope I am wrong. To be rich and have wealth is not easy as one has to work hard like me and now it is 5AM here and I am still trying to close my business day and that’s how hard it is.
    Good night from London.

  8. Sirih Says:

    Dear Prof. Some of these numbers are correct and we know who owns them.
    Some facts,
    Basil did not ask for 10, or 20% his last figure was 40% from all major bids and on top of that he also creamed from Principal’s side.
    I wish I can publish names and exact figures since some of the contracts are done by SL expats that came to give SL so that they can give some thing back and they were basically told 40% or no deal.
    As I said before MR’s circle are highly corrupt and did not give a damn to SL’s poor which is now running at 85%.
    I spend last 8 months in SL and to see staggering corruption is beyond belief and I would say new goons will not do anything since they want part of these ill gotten proceed to themselves and this is why suddenly everything come to slow death when it re. investigations.
    New mob recently asked northern road contract to be split with UNP money man. ( one with the plane).
    So SLFP, UNP, or what ever they name themselves are all in together to cream the counties wealth.
    I am getting out since I cannot see any hope at present and only request to expats are use direct funding to fund the poor areas like education, health and housing.

  9. douglas Says:

    Dear Prof: I remember, you said sometime back that you too wanted to start some project with a local and foreign participation, but abandoned it because an “UPFRONT” payment was demanded. In a comment, in that regard, I did say that “UPFRONT PAYMENT” was the “Trick of the Trade”. That was the operation then. If I am wrong, please correct me and if wrong I withdraw this comment. Thank you.

  10. Independent Says:

    You are right Douglas, I too remember. I remember it was a certain UNPeer who collect the lot on behalf of another politician, according to Prof.

  11. Independent Says:

    Sirih,
    But poor innocent Mahinda had to pay for these crimes. Poor thing.

  12. Fran Diaz Says:

    We want PROOF of corruption. Just saying this person or that person is corrupt is of no use.

    In these times, opportunities to make easy money is available. Most businesses write in about 10% of the operation costs as bribe money. At the end of the day, either the tax payer or the consumer pays for bribe money.

    In the case of the recent Bond scam, there appears to be proof of it. However, we expect all that to be hushed up through Sir Ranil’s buddies in the investigation team of three persons.
    Also, the Port City project delay will raise the costs considerably. The Port City project was pulled out to go Westward Ho ! Who pays for all this in the end ?

    So wither Lanka ? All the ordinary folk lose out. A few politicos and business folk gain and they mostly rule. Is this
    Democracy ?

    I must say I like Crobe’s lines : “Now, we would have 44 ministers, 28 deputy ministers and 19 state ministers for a total of 91 ministers. You can put lipstick on a pig but its still a pig”. Looks like this particular Piggy will have coat & tie, hat & sunglasses too ! D&D Lankans are cutting the branch they are sitting on.

    Does anyone know the progress of much publicized military coup on Election Day night?

  16. Fran Diaz Says:

    Jay-ran, you say ” Mud Slinging by MR & RW to discredit and damage popularity of MR … ” etc.
    I think you mean MS (MY3) & RW to discredit and damage etc.

    Also, this part : “This traitor MR is trying to safeguard RW … ” where again I think you mean ‘this traitor MS …”

    Please send in your corrected version. Thank you.

    ——–

    The SWRD assassination : Certainly, Somarama was USED by certain parties to do this dastardly act. Shame. Somarama changed his religion before he was executed – hopeful of his sins to be forgiven ….
    Christ said ‘the Kingdom of Heaven is WITHIN YOU’ (Mathew 6:10). Buddhist Teacihings (Meditation ) & Raj Yoga both are in agreement with this profound Truth. Islam means ‘Peace’.

  17. Fran Diaz Says:

    Jay-ran,

    Please correct me if I am wrong in my interpretation of your response above.

  18. jay-ran Says:

    I’m extremely sorry sir, Fran Dias! U R exactly correct,ITSHOULD BE MY3 and not MR!!!I wanted to correct it but due to my personnel lapses I failed to do that and NOW I PERSONNALY APOLOGISE TO YOU AND ALL WHO LOVES & RESPECT MR THE GREAT,GREAT,GREAT SAVIOUR OF MOTHER LANKA!!!
    This bastered My3 will very soon will say say that 1962 COUP WHICH WAS PLANNED BY UNP AFFILIATED CATHOLIC SERVICE CHIEFS.
    In 1962,I was a student of KATUBEDDA Institute of Technology(now Katubedda University).
    One day suddenly some Army detachment lead by Capt Paulier occupied our HOSTEL.The following day we heard that Cat Paulier HAS SHOT HIMSELF AS THE COUP WAS DETECTED.
    HOW?
    Among the Service personnel who participated the COUP DISCUSSIONS,THERE WAS A GREAT SINHALA BUDDHIST WHO WAS THE SON-IN-LAW OF P.De.S.Kularatne,whose daughter was married by this GREAT SON OF THE LAND.At 12.00 midnight of that date,PLANS WERE TO ARREST MADAM SIRIMAO BANDARANAYAKE AND THE GOVT BIG WIGS AND FORCIBLY TO TAKE OVER GOVT!!!
    But, this Sinhala Buddhist Army Officer was up all the night and was walking up and down in an UNREST MOOD.So his wife has questioned AS TO WHY WAS THAT!
    Then HE HAS DICLOSED THE COUP ATTEMPT AND HIS WIFE IMMEDIATELY INFORMED HER FATHER,WHO IMMEDIATELY INFORMED Madam Sirimao B.
    She TOOK IMMEDIATE ACTION BEDFORE 12 MID NIGHT AND THE COUP FAILED.
    So, Capt Paulier coming to know this has SHOT HIMSELF INSIDE STUDENTS HOSTEL!!!!!
    The LEADER OF THE COUP GOVERNER IMMEDIATELY FLEW TO ENGLAND.
    JR THE OTHER CO-PLANNER AFTYER COMMING TO POWER IN 1977,PARDONED AND ALL THE CULPRITS WERE RELEASED!!!
    One such Army Officer was from my birth place,Kahalla, Katugastota, WHO WAS RELEASED TOO!!!!!!!!!!!
    Now very soon THIS BASTERED TRAITOR MY3 WILL SAY THE COUP WAS ORIENTED BY THE SLFPers??????

  19. Fran Diaz Says:

    Jay-ran,

    Thank you very much for your response. It is alright … when I am upset, I make mistakes too. I too am a senior in years. I am heart broken at times when I see how our politicos try to misuse our people, whatever ethnicity.

    I sympathise with you. I do understand how you feel. Since Independence from Britain in 1948, our poor country Lanka has not known real peace. It is one thing or the other. It is political party infighting, cold war effects, Tamil separatism, Sinhala villager neglected and riots, etc. etc.

    Re the present day leaders MY3, RW & CBK, I am at a loss at their lack of integrity. They appear to me to be totally lacking in maturity and high on slyness and intrigue. What a weird leadership ! It appears to me that the country has been hijacked by mentally & emotionally broken people taking revenge out on MR the leader who removed terrorism, his
    brothers and most of the people of Lanka … ? I can imagine a bit of back biting which is normal in politics, but the recent goings on takes the cake !!

    But keep up your hopes, Jay-ran, stranger things have happened in the world to make matters turn. Trust the Force.
    Truth wins.

  20. jay-ran Says:

    Thanks,Fran Diaz!
    I realy appreciate for understanding me.
    I’m a Sri Lankan living in US.But I have been monitoring the events in SL and last days of the war too.
    But now,because of My3,RW & Chandrika the Chaura Regina, Siri Lanka is at a very VULNERABLE SITUATION!!! I WISH LORD VISHNU WILL PROTECT OUR COUNTRY FROM THESE TRAITORS.
