Leaking CJ’s Banking Details

    Leaking confidential financial information to the public by a bank is a disgraceful betrayal of trust and a sheer abuse of the powers of maintaining sensitive information. The bank concerned should take this breach of confidentiality seriously and institute an internal disciplinary inquiry against those involved.

    Anil Amarasuriya Esq. – It is now upto you to educate us on the very relevant issues raised by Mr. Chandra Jayaratne. Please remember this letter dated 10 Dec. 2012 is an “OPEN LETTER” and we are impatiently waiting for your explanation, through this site.

    Please remember to give specific attention and reference to the question “How did the 117 Members of Parliament get the Banking information “prior” to this whole “Impeachment” was instituted in Parliament”? Also remember that this matter first went to the HE President as a “complaint” with 117 signataures by Members of Parliament inclusive of the Banking information.

    Do you see the “backlash” you get and the “shock waves” spreading through the entire Commercial world? Is this how our country is managing the commercial sphere to lure the most wanted foreign investments?

    We now turn to you and all other “Pandiths” “Accredited Journalists, both in the print and electronic media” to address these issues, and educate the “People” whom you all call “Supreme”.

    Shock, horror!

    How can a country full of NGOs fighting for transpaerncy, people complain when suspect financial transactions of a top level bureaucrat (CJ) is revealed? We must applaud the revelation instead of blaming the banks.

    Next time it could be one from the ruling group!

    Thanks Mr. Jayaratne – keep up your great work and activism. Lanka needs many more people like you!
    The official residence of the General Manager of the Bank of Ceylon on Green Path, a beautiful Colonial bungalow, is now occupied and has been occupied for the late 2 years by Presidential Security.
    Rajapassa clearly wants that valuable property in the heart of Colombo. The destruction of the Colombo Land registry in the Kachceri fire brought possession of that house by one of the syblings on step closer.
    The venal greed of the Rajapassa brothers has NO LIMIT!

    Mr Jayaratna the truely patriotic and, decent, Sri Lankans are greatful to you. At a time when most people who, do not like trvelling in white vans are afraid to take an extra breath, you spoke, LOUD AND CLEAR?
    If those who are running this country have the grey matter to hear and understand you, and follow the correct path, then we are alright. Other wise they are in for a rude shock.

    Bravo, Mr. Jayaratne! It is heartening to note that we have in Sri Lanka a gentleman with a spine to speak out against injustices and violations of established rules and practices. I am surprised that the Bank concerned has been silent for so long…perhaps in the mistaken belief that whatever information released to MR & Co. cannot be a breach since the KING as a practice waives all laws and regulations in this KINGDOM of Sri Lanka.

    The Central bank is the Culprit. NDB to cover themselves should issue a statement to this effect

    Well! Someone please sue the relevant bank for breach of fundamental rights! CJ, you too sue the Bank for breaching your rights and also the Secrecy Act. The 117 nincompoops who signed the impeachment must also be sued for using the illegally obtained information and embarrassng the CJ! I think this case alone can topple this government.

    So we all agree that if we find that one of the Rajapaksas have a Swiss bank account and he has hidden billions in that account? We support the Swiss bank’s secrecy?

    Come on, go in front of a mirror and look at yourselves from time time.

      Arun Wimalaratna, sorry about your limited knowledge. There is a legigimate way of obtaining any information though covered by Secrecy Acts. That is what rule of law is for.

    As my memory serves, late Gamini Fonseka the actor turned politician was to get some loan from the Peoples Bank Thissamaharama branch and the Manager of that bank allegedly devulged the same to the Ravaya newspaper which carried a nasty article on Gamini and Gamini went against the Peoples Bank and got a significant damages and that was a landmark case in Sri Lanka’s banking law.

    I think CJ should follow same and send this Anil Amarasuriya and claim millions.

      A little correction:
      It was the Ministry of Finance which had got PB to send it a list of borrowers who had defaulted loans to PB which was not supposed to do so in terms of the Banking Act. This list was leaked to Ravaya and finding Gamini Fonseka’s name in the list, it gave maximum publicity to the news.

      Gamini Fonseka did not sue Ravaya or Ministry of Finance, but PB for violating the provisions of the Banking Act. The judgment was delivered in favour of Gamini and PB had to pay a thumping compensation of loser to Rs 200 million because at that time, he was the Governor of the N-E Province.

      Hence, if any bank has violated the provisions of the Banking Act in releasing info relating to customers without the approval of the customer is deemed to have violated the provisions of the Act and the aggrieved party can claim compensation from the Bank.

    Do not drag Rakapaksha’s in here as you cannot open a Swiss Bank account from a address in Medamulana and I have verified this with the supervision unit of Swiss banks.

    Rakapaksha’s are a principled leaders and not like the UNPers who more like the swiss cheese – too many holes and corruption.

      Leela, I think you are after a nervous breakdown and need medical care or you may end up not eating swiss cheese but in a prison in switzerland. The corrupt family of brothers and sons have not millions of dollars but billions of dollars stashed away which will be recovered very soon and exposed. They think they are smart but there are smarter people working behind the scenes who knows all about their monies that are stashed away in …… ( will reveal it at the Supreme court soon when they are brought handcuffed to face the trial)Will give you a special TV to watch the proceedings Leela.

    Getting an account number is not a big deal anyways – the amounts revealed were totally off the rocker , evens the number of accounts were wrong. It was a
    Mere allegation at that time till it was then divulged. But it was close enough.

    Assuming this letter is a serious one, shows mr jayaratne is unaware that only president and a supreme court judge can be impeached!

    Yes let all the banks, stock brokers, real estate and property and mega businesses owned by all Ministers ,MP’s and all corporate CEO’s to be investigated.

    I think Supreme Court has the power to receive these details.

    CJ must file a case against the bank, the 116 nincompoops in the parliament, the speaker for illegally obtaining her bank account details and causing great mental trauma, damage to reputation etc. and claim Rs. 1 Bn or more as compensation!
