The Galle Magistrate today ordered the CID to inspect the bank accounts of former Defense Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa in relation to the ongoing case of the Avant Garde Floating Armoury.

Orders were also given by the Galle Magistrate to investigate Gotabaya’s bank accounts along with the bank accounts of Former Additional Secretary of the Defence Ministry DMS Jayarathne and the Avant Garde Maritime Services Directors as well as per a request made by the CID in order to investigation whether any violations of the money laundering act have taken place.

The Magistrate also ordered the suspension of foreign travel for Jayarathne.

The government has come under serious criticism by various parties over the handling of the floating armoury controversy. Allegations have been leveled at the Public Order Minister John Amaratunga on blocking the effective enforcement of the law against those involved with the issue.

    So guys, are you happy? Slowly but surely the wheels of justice are turning. With MS and RW you can be sure that they will turn, may be not at the speed some of us would like, but eventually they will reach the destination that justice and fairplay warrants.

    Let us sit back and enjoy.

      This is good news. But, hardly enough. Painfully & suspiciously slow.

      Besides, his financial crimes are not my biggest concern.

      I am more worried about justice for extra-judicial killings, disappearances, kidnappings & beatings.

      Start with cold blooded massacre at Welikada prison. Behind high walls, in the center of Colombo city. Who gave the order? Why is it taking so much time? Where are the killers in uniform who executed such brutality?

      Cheers!

      You are a stupid dreamer trying to convince other stupids (90% of SL have IQ ,50 as per bell curve anything above make them supervisors not tea pluckers sex slaves etc)

      they will get nowhere to his `offshore bank accounts` with him being proscribed for money laundering drugs or terrorist- De jure De Facto in the west after 9/11.
      In dubai no way like Rizzana case or hiding the Thai PM.

    Not only his accounts, his son (who is working in Malaysia), wife, mother-in-law, brother-in-law (owner of House of Fashion), sister-in-law, needs to be looked into. How did that House of Fashion guy put up that property in Borella ? From where did he get the money ? All those properties bought by a Company called ‘House of Fasion’ needs to be looked into.

    What a shameless family ! Bloody rogues, the women, children all are the same.

      Get KP and he would tell you where Goo’tas loot is hidden because he told him how to hide it.

    Not only his bank accounts, lot of dead bodies need to be exhumed.

    This guy became a mercenary after the end of the war. How many families would have suffered in silence, not knowing where to go, to seek justice. Not the Police or the Judiciary, all were under his and MARA’s boots.

    They were acting like God and were untouchable. Let us not behave the way they behaved and let the justice take it’s course, a bit expeditiously though.

    Look at those venomous and murderous eyes. Criminality and Killer instinct written all over the face.

    What benefits did Gota’s nephew receive from Dialog ? Was he appointed main dealer for dialog for North, East and Central provinces by Dialog ? Is he as a result a millionaire now ? Did Hans wijesuriya of Dialog organize a job for Gota’s son in Malaysia ? What benefits did Dialog receive in return ?

      Or KP arranged the job for the son through a Tamil businessman with links to LTTE – this is what I read somewhere.

    I doubt that Gota was stupid enough to put the extra funds in bank accounts. This is all a show.

      This is like looking for drugs in “Wela Sudha” house. Your not going to find any, he is not that stupid neither is Gota if he was dealing with black money.
      Better look for the real estate his immediate family owns and how it was paid for. That might give better clues.

      Gota would have covered all tracks by now and it is too late to catch him. When these big time crooks do this sort of work, they try their best to ensure that they are not caught. Its nearly two half months after Jan 8th. I sometime get the feeling that MS and RW are trying to please the public who are demanding justice by doing this so late in the day. I think they really do not want to punish these crooks. It is a sham

    Gotas method of getting things done is the White-Van ride!

    If this same principle is used on Gota,all what the country needs to know can be obtained from the horses mouth so to say in double quick time.

    Firstly,we can start with the murder of Lasantha Wickrematunga.

    Something will come out of cash transactions were done through the local banks But if funds were channelled thru overseas banks ?

    The Bank accounts of Gota will reveal nothing! All that it will show is his monthly salary as Secy:Defence.

    The Rajapakses are not just stupid Bulls in a China-shop. They are also pretty smart and with that craft and cunning running in their veins they would have ensured that all that loot is hidden well and truly.My guess is that there is a Wild-Goose chase ahead!

    He may be dumb but not mute to have monies sitting in a bank account of his or his kith and kin especially in SL.. They have assets in USA, his wife own more than just a super luxury house. Check their bank details usinng their social security numbers. They also have money [Edited out] This Megalomaniac and war criminal NEED to be charged and jailed either in SL or in Gitmo..

    So, what are the bank statements going to reveal? Most likely, very little of use. As a couple of previous respondents have already said, Gota would not have been so stupid or careless with what went through his bank accounts.

    In the end, this whole exercise will be a futile waste of time and resources.

    It is not going to be easy to find the ill gotten loot. They are a devious bunch and would have hidden it in ways it would not be found easily. They would have used their golayas and pandang karayas to hide the loot in other accounts/names. It will take forensic auditing and research to find their illegal accounts, and that will take years.

    It might be better to dig up his garden than look at his bank accounts.

    Even if you don’t find the loot you will sure find some dead bodies.

    The Philippines, since over two decades, are still on the road trying to locate the billions said to have been stashed by former strongman Ferdinand Marcos who died in exile over two decades ago.
    The Bofors arms deal of India, the accused were never arrested nor any monies recovered and many died overseas with Rajiv Gandhi blown to bits by LTTE. Age of case almost 3 decades.
    Indonesia is still trying to locate the wealth amassed by former strongman, the late Sukarno.
    Pakistan numerous corruption cases against numerous politicians notably that of “Mr 10 percent” nothing has been revealed as yet.
    So where are we ?
    We were like the 3 stooges who were in a leaky boat and when one of them was bailing water out of the boat the other two were too bailing the water into the water. When we voted on the Jan 8 we thought we swept corruption, bribery racialism, mismanagementetc..etc.. we have actually swept them in for continuation by the present My3 administration.

    For every cent this scoundrel took from the poor’s mouth, the bugger should be whipped with a cane until every cent is accounted for. SOB, stole, murdered, plundered the country for almost 8 years.
