Well-known Buddhist monk Elle Gunawansa Thera, who does a great deal for the furtherance of Sinhala Buddhism, has received a Rs. five million payment from the Colombo Port City project, say Central Bank sources. This questionable payment came to light during an auditing by the CB’s internal audit division of the massive amount of money received during the previous regime for the project.
A total of nearly one billion rupees had been paid to individuals and institutions in a questionable manner. The bank’s special investigation unit has handed over the investigations to the CID, as ministers of the ‘Yahapaalana’ government had interfered with its investigations. We know the identities of those ministers, but we refrain from revealing them with the hope that they would not go to interfere with the CID investigations. The CID is presently obtaining statements from businessmen who had close links with the previous regime.
