Bond Scam: Perpetual IT Officer Says He Was Told To Delete Call Recordings

Perpetual Treasuries IT officer Sachith Devathanthri today informed the Bond Commission that he was instructed by the Chief Dealer of the Company to delete certain call recordings from the system.

Arjun Aloysius

This comes a day after it was revealed that Perpetual Treasuries had fabricated evidence with regard to the call recordings.

Yesterday, Devathanthri admitted to the CID that he had lied in previous statements regarding call recording systems.

Devathantrhi today said that on July 5, Chief Dealer of Perpetual Treasuries Nuwan Salgado had given him a list of serial numbers and asked that they be deleted.

Right on the very next day, July 6th Perpetual Treasuries had completely erased the recording system inserted by Metropolitian Communications and wiped off the call records.

The Lawyers for Arjun Aloysius and Perpetual Treasuries led by Nihal Fernando, Kalinga Indathissa and Anuja Premarathne during cross examination of the Metropolitan Chief Engineer attempted to assert that the recordings were deleted because the “computer crashed”.

The evidence by Devathanthri completely negated the above and made it clear that the entire deletion was done at the behest of the higher ups of the Company.

Lawyer for Perpetual Treasuries Nihal Fernando throughout the time insisted that there was no tampering of the call recording system, until the revelation by the Metropolitan Chief Engineer.

Each time the Attorney Generals department brought up the issue of the call recordings handed over to them not being complete, they insisted that it was.

ASG Dappula De Livera also asked the Commission to arrest the Chief Dealer Nuwan Salgado and the Chief Executive Officer Kasun Palisena.

Devathanthri said that the Chief Dealer met him at the server room of PTL and asked that the calls be deleted. He had thereafter inserted voice recordings instead of the calls on the serial numbers.

      What’s the current Deputy Minister to Justice Minister doing now is SIMILAR TO
      DEAL DASA DID DURING HIS TIME BY SINGING GLORY TO THE PAST LEADER SAYING NOTHING OF THEIR CRIMES.
      What’s going on President ?? Can’t you differentiate from THE ONES SUPPORTING YOU AND THE ONES SUPPORTING YOUR ENEMIES??
      That’s the problem with our President and the PM!!

      Simply appointing wrong characters in high responsible positions with guarding our country , wealth , or the people of this Nation with Rogues .
      How can you TRUST THE ROGUES IN YOUR GOVERNMENT.
      There’s no way forward for this country nor the government’s policies Mister President.
      This deputy should be sacked from his post and employ a deputy who is FAITHFUL TO YOUR PARTY .

        W Rajapakse ,

        It’s wrong to keep this traitor in the same position as Deputy to the Current Minister of Justice, President??
        Please replace with A LOYAL SERVANT TO YOUR GOVERNMENT.
        WHY DO YOU CREATE OR LEAVE THE STUMBLING BLOCKS TO CONTINUE DESTRUCTION OF THIS GOVERNMENT??!

    Lawyers like Nihal Fernando lie for money. By misleading the judges and the public he has committed contempt of court. He should be removed from the lawyers list for bringing disrepute to the lawyers.

    Don’t know why the members of the commission behave as they are subservient to PTL big wigs and their lawyers. They are bending over backwards not to hurt the villains as if they are little school girls. What is their deal behind the curtains. Sick!

    This is getting very interesting. Here a company deleted some of its own records – looks shady though.
    Now they have to look into how phone records and CCTV footages connected with an infamous murder case went missing.
    The hatchet will be buried for self-survival!

    Punishments in Lanka ?…no no no…no way ! They all will be excused just like our ranawiruwo’s…no matter what any one do, criminal or like other things…you are just let go. How many people a government can punish ? It’s not only UNP or SLFP, it’s everyone in the game. So these investigations are all just nothing but a sham. No one need to panic. This is Yahapalana or something they call it ! Funny stuff .

      “Punishments in Sri Lanka?… no…no no way”. Of course, the law punishes criminals – three wheeler drivers for minor traffic offenses, school principals for taking bribes, children for stealing coconuts …Jails are filled to capacity and beyond. Why bother with big fish when you can catch little ones! Besides, seems Perpetual Trusties have only stolen funds of the poor ,the EPF stakeholders and the State. That’s fair game isn’t it? Robin Hood got it all wrong!

    I saw Dr Ranil……… He was seated next to Mahnda, who had a broad smile even though it was at a Funeral House…………Dr Ranil looked not that well……. May be the Re Plumbing of the Ticker at Mt Sinai is not working well ………Or is it Attorney Livera visiting him every night ……… while Dr Ranil is sleeping……….. When Dr Ranil is trying to get some sleep after Steering the Committee, to give the Diaspora and the TNA their Eelaam which Dr Ranil promised in the MOU with the West………BTW, Did the Yahapalana Taxpayers helped the President pay for Dr Ranil’s re plumbing too…….?…….

      “He was seated next to Mahnda, who had a broad smile even though it was at a Funeral House”

      You have been insulting Mahinda for quite sometime. You have completely forgotten the Mahinda and his National hangman brother were honoured each with a Doctorate for killing a large number of innocent people by Colombo University in 2009. Thanks to Dr Laksiri Fernando.

      What were you doing at the funeral? Were you one of the pole bearer or were you Mahinda’s b***s carrier?

    So, some records are missing means, Ranil wickramasinghe is safe and he won’t be caught for instigating the Day light robbery of the Central bank and Malik Samarawickrama is safe for suggesting it. tha is it the central bank investigations. Perpetual Treasrueis will be procuted for delating important records and will be fined. Everything else will be hunky-dory. Thereafter everybody will disperse with joy. voters became utter fools for another five years.

    The IT Administrator may have taken a backup before deleting the records. This it the normal procedure any Administrator would follow! He may even blackmail the boss?

    Ultimately one rule for parliamentarians and another rule for ordinary citizens. The Government got caught it reveals that what is known is just a tip of the iceberg. Ranil Wickremasinghe should resign from Premiership and from Parliament as it will send wrong signals to young aspiring future parliamentarians who will correctly think parliament is a secure place for becoming rich quick by illicit means. Further it will irreparably damage the respect and trust ordinary citizens have in parliament.

    Now we know why and is all crystal clear why Ranil Wickremasinghe went out of the way to protect Arjuna Mahendran the former Governor of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka. It all seems he was appointed for this post by Ranil for this scam job as a side business but things went badly wrong and the rest is history.

    If we as ordinary citizens to have any faith in Parliament and parliamentarians Ranil must now resign or be sacked. Now I am too aspiring to be an MP to become rich quick and enjoy all the privileges, benefits, influence and kickbacks.

    This is what the commission has said.

    [Justice Jayawardena: We will show how the correct steps should be taken. Send a report on the evidence given before the Commission and arguments brought forward by the State Counsel to the AG and the IGP.]

    so now let us see whether the following takes place

    1.AG sending everything to IGP(i think that will happen)

    2.IGP takes time off from his medication,sorry meditation and issues orders to arrest the culprits.

    the second step is 50:50.Will Ranil call the IGP through his golaya sagara and ask to continue hismedication,sorry meditation and go slow on this as there are other more important issues such as megapolis etc for him to concentrate on without any distractions.Or will the stink that has been let out make ranil decide better to let the IGP do whatever he wants.My bet is on the latter.

    Arjun Aloysious is boss ? I thought the UNP guys were saying that no sooner Mahendran was appointed Governor of the Central Bank ( or even before that ) Aloysious the honourable ,resigned as chairman of the Perpetual !

    Who are they trying to fool ?

    Does Ranil think he can fool the world any longer ?

    Perpetual lawyers are shameless, they are just prostitutes.We should ask perpetual to show how much fees these rascal lawyers are getting
