My Wife And Daughters “Don’t Know Politics” – Penthouse Resident Ravi Karunanayake Tells Bond Commission

The nexus between the then Finance Minister and present Foreign Affairs Minister Ravi Karunanayake and Arjun Aloysius became evident today at the Commission investigating the Bond Scam after the Attorney general read out text messages referring to the Minister.

Despite Karunanayake’s denial at first, his relationship with Arjun Aloysius and then knowledge of the apartment he currently lives in, the Attorney Generals Department derived clear proof of the nexus.

Although initially denied, Karunanayake’s connection with the Sunday Leader was also laid bare at the commission.

Karunanayake first denied that he knew Aloysius in any capacity other than a family friend. Additional Solicitor General Dappula De Livera who questioned Karunanayake asked him what type of relationship he had with Aloysius.

AG:” Was it a personal relationship?”.
RK: No
AG: Was it a official relationship?
RK: No
AG: Was it a business relationship?
RK: No
AG: Then what kind of relationship did you have?
RK: A normal one, like any politician would have with people. You know they call me for jobs and all.

Immediately thereafter De Livera pulled out the file containing the data of Aloysius’ mobile which ran into nearly 8600 pages.

Startling evidence came before the Commission thereafter.

One text message sent by Aloysius’ personal assistant to Aloysius was to obtain the minutes of the Monetary Board meeting, held on the 28th of November 2016.

28 November 2016 – Remind me to ask Hon MP RK to get a copy of the Monetary Board Paper 

Karunanayke was startled and denied knowledge of the message. Thereafter he was asked if he had met with Aloysius and Karunanayake said ‘no’. The AG thereafter read out another text message

1 December 2016 – From Steve Samuel

Good Morning Chairman Hope you had a good meeting with RK. Reminder 1 PM haircut.

According to the data found on Aloysius’s text messages, it has come to light that both Ravi Karunanayake and Arjun Aloysius had both funded the Sunday Leader newspaper soon after the change in governments in 2015.

Another text read To Arjun Aloysius

Social media is a strong weapon these days.Allow us to start our gossip column. We can give a massive support to PM and Hon Ravi K. I am going to cover the cost for two months. 3 to 5 million. Let’s do this boss.

The insinuations were clear, that Karunanayake had met with Aloysius days after the meeting of the monetary board.

Thereafter Karunanayake was questioned as to a letter which was not dated, which was signed by him, and given to Arjun Mahendran. The letter said the government needed Rs 75 Billion for development. It was to justify the Bond Auction.

When Additional Solicitor General wanted to know the reason as to the origin of such a letter the Minister explained the situation he had as the Finance Minister in the beginning of the 2015.

He said that there was an unaccounted debt in balance and an outstanding repayment amounting Rs. 100 billion, when they assumed duties as the new Government in 2015.

The witness said there was a meeting on February 26, 2015 with Malik Samarawickrama and Kabir Hashim over the fund requirement of Rs. 75 billion for road development projects.

The meeting was held prior to the controversial bond auction that took place on February 27, 2015.

When questioned he confirmed that there was no sudden need to raise money in February but the funds were required for the payments in RDA projects.

The witness said Mahendran requested him to send a letter relating to what happened at the February 26, 2015 meeting between the three ministers and thereby he had sent the letter in May 2016.

Karunanayake said the not dating of the letter was an “oversight”. He said Minister Kabir Hashim and Malik Samarawickrama were aware of the letter.

The Attorney Generals also pointed out that Karunanayake and Aloysius had travelled to Singapore and Malaysia at the same time on 13 occasions after June 2015. Karunanayake first said that he never met Aloysius, and thereafter said he must have met him “once” and then said “twice or thrice”.

Regarding the apartment, Karunanayake played complete ignorance. he said that he did not know how the apartment, which he currently lives in at the Monarch residency was paid for.

He said he never asked his wife nor his daughter as to who paid for it. He said that it was not “his business”.

Justice Prasanna Jayawardena said he was amazed that the family could live in a single house and the Minister being the Minster of finance didn’t ask as to how the apartment was paid for.

Karunanayake first said that he came to know about the Aloysius connection with the apartment following Anika Wijesuriya‘s testimony. Later however he admitted that he knew about it since July 2016 when Mahindananda Aluthgamage brought the Penthouse up in parliament.

However, the AG failed to ask Karunanayake as to what he did after the questioning in July. The Penthouse was brought by Karunanayake’s connected company much after July.

Justice Prasanna Jayawardena asked if it was rational to think that his daughters and wife did not know that there would be a conflict of interest by using the money of Aloysius who was already in the middle of the controversy following the Bond auction in 2015.

Karunanayake said his daughters and wife “don’t know politics”.

When asked as to how the funds were raised to purchase the apartment, Karunanayake said that it was through the Company Global Transport Logistics (GTL), of which his wife and daughter are Directors.

Then Jayawardena said that he had gone through the accounts of GTL for the last two years and could not find a single note on the transaction.

Karunanayake further said that there “may be no accounts in any bank for the sum”, after being asked by Jayawardena as to if there was any sort of document to show the transaction.

Jayawardena also said that it was highly unusual for the Minister of Finance to not have known basic norms in such process. He also said that it was unusual for Karunanayake not to be aware of how the house he lived in was bought.

Prasanna Jayawardena, the Commissioner, asked if Karunanayake was aware of how money laundering worked. This was after Karunanayake said that the money for the apartment was given by Lakshmi Kanthan, the Chairman of his company, for which there was no account. Karunanayake said that he trusted the Chairman of the Company to which Jayawardena said that “trusting Chairmans is not a good thing”. he also told Karunanayake that he was a the Finance Minister and should have known how the money was brought in.

      It was probably paid by your wife’s admirer.! After all some of the lucky ones have very generous admirers. You are really, really lucky to have a wife with such a generous admirer.

        Over the few months, lanken media have been against the current govt.
        But pro Rajaakshes why ?

        We have provable acts of Rajaakshes but they have been held as heroes even today.
        High murder crimes to all money laundering acts have been reported with prima facie evidence.. nevertheless lanken media to report proxy rajapakashes.. is no means acceptable.

      Mela Karunanayake ran Ravi’s offices, be it Finance or Foreign, with an iron fist with ALL private staff and her close family. No one goes or comes out without her direct approval. To say she does not know politics is laughable – she has runs all his campaigns.

      Arjun had a free pass to the Finance Ministry and walked is as and when he felt. Ravi has noting else to say but deny and in such a puerile manner – 13 visits to Singapore that coincide? For god’s sake!!

      It is not the theft of money that should worry the people it is the inapt crooks who cannot properly, plan, execute, profit, hide evidence, and get away unscathed .

      The worrying aspect of the tragedy is that they are being entrusted with major ministries. If these crooks can’t effectively lie why the hell people vote for them?

      The voters must be very very very dumb indeed who periodically elect the dumbest of all crooks.

      The education is such the country is incapable of producing clever crooks. What the hell is going on?

        You hit the nail on the head. What is this country coming to when a Hon? Minister cannot even lie convincingly. You also have to admire his breathtaking idiocy when involving his wife and daughters. Any self-respecting man will surely inquire when his lady produces ‘goodies’ like a prize penthouse. What did she do? How did she do it? The last time I looked, our ministers are paid very very well, but not enough to afford top-of-the-range penthouses. Oh for the time when only the educated and landed proprietors were allowed to vote.

      I think lanken media has established their views on RK before studying all the bits properly.
      Very same media has been doing everything to attack Prez and PM on and on.
      I think lanka today is being ruled by MEDIA mafia not by elected president or any politicians.
      Highly corrupted cultured is connected to one another – as nothing can be understood easily.
      Lawyer and MP Ajith Perera had added to a TV program y day, that there is no room to a justice court so long current minister of JUSTICE is there. Minister of justice and his actions are fishy we also heard them few months ago.

    I’m just a guy who knows little of Finance, but I, and most other Sri Lankan citizens who spend the now mandatory 15 minutes to find out what’s happening in the country, knew within days of that Bond Auction that Arjun Mahendran’s name was getting dragged in the mud “over some allegations”. For Ravi Karunanayake’s wife and daughter not to know is incredible.

    Mrs Karunanayake had a brother, a retired low rank Police Officer, Bangsa Jaya. We read that he had been appointed something like the Chairman of the Insurance Corporation, and Ravi K. was listing his b-i-l’s qualifications as having passed his “First-in-Laws” which is just a preliminary exam on the way to an LLB. R.K. also claimed that Bangsa Jaya was a great success in the job.

    There was so much idealism among those who made the Rainbow Revolution possible, and within days of succeeding these are the things that they’ve done. True, Maithri appointed his brother to Telecom, but relative to the the UNP branch of the Government, the Maithri section were reasonably clean.

    However, there may be pique. Does anybody else remember this? When the picking of Maithri as Presidential Candidate was announced, I have a distinct memory of some guy appearing on T.V. and pouring scorn on the choice, and advancing his own credentials. . Was it R.K. or Managala S. I think that it was the latter. Let’s get this part of punishing be done quickly. Then let’s get on to the Rajapaksas. What a country is this become now!

      Well said. From the grand father Kattar Aloysius who was a leach hanging on to President Premadasa and made his millions including on the school uniform material supplies, now the grand son along with his father in law have right royally screwed the sinhalese. When thousands of EFF contributors are struggling to make ends meet these crooks have clean swept the funds, of course in collaboration with the Sinhala RK, RW and the scum at the Central Bank EPF Section.
      Both the Indian tamil Arjun A and the Jaffna Tamil Arjuna M have shown what the tamils are capable of !!!

    When I first heard of this “Penthouse”, what it conjured in my mind was some sort of lean to shed added on to a building. Searching now for its meaning I find that my vague memory was correct. It apparently meant that originally.

    But NOW, it means something very different apparently:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penthouse_apartment

    What we now need to see are some photographs of this. Is it the top floor of this?

    http://dailynews.lk/2017/07/29/local/123585/global-logistics-cfo-says-karunanayakes-purchased-monarch-penthouse

    Too small! This has to be exposed in greater detail!! We, the miserable poor, now no longer know how our rulers live. Well, to be sure he RK doesn’t either, since this is what he’s claimed above:

    “Regarding the apartment, Karunanayake played complete ignorance. he said that he did not know how the apartment, which he currently lives in at the Monarch residency was paid for.”

    Karunanayake said his daughters and wife “don’t know politics”.
    I am sure that the former ruling family too has similar domestic situations.
    *
    Karunanayake said the not dating of the letter was an “oversight”. He said Minister Kabir Hashim and Malik Samarawickrama were aware of the letter.
    Shame, even his cabinet colleagues did not notice that the letter was undated.

Disgraceful conduct of a well known abuser of peoples trust. He did similar things earlier under Ranil. He, Mahendran and Aloysious all are sponsored by Ranil Wickramasinghe. Ranil Wickramasinghe is totally responsible for the current economic crisis in the country.

    Ranil and the dirty government must take the responsibility.
    We got rid of ALI BABAA and Forty Thieves in January 2015, but we have replace them with another Big Thief preaching Litchchavi techniques. He should know Litchavis were never known for robbing people and for money laundering.

    Irony is ALI BABAA thinks he can come back to power on his issue. Unfortunately, Sira is in a hell of a bind. When you have made the deal with the devil, outcome is not very nice.

    Native Vedda: In answering “Spring Koha” you said: “It is not the theft that should worry the people, it is the inapt crooks………….hide evidence and get away unscathed”. We have a “Brilliant Set of Crooks’ who would measure up or exceed that type of “Apt” you speak of in the company of the previous President Mr. Mahinda Rajapakse. This YAHAPALANAYA after nearly two years in operation has yet to “Unearth” some of the “MEGA CORRUPTION” of the previous regime of MR. Perhaps, we must try to bring these “Inapt” crooks to meet with that “Apt” and “Able” crooks of the MR camp and form into a “CONGLOMERATE” so that the PEOPLE could easily identify them in one camp as and when elections are held to nominate them in the Legislature.

This basket has brought the ultimate disgrace to Sri lankan form of democracy, and I regert that there is no Army Leadership in the country that could take over power and arrest the lot and shoot them at dawn. Sri Lanka has gone several thousands of years back to the stone age when it comes to good governance. It is despicable that all our top political leaders are involved in stripping national assets, in collusion with crooked businessmen. Disgusting.

He used name of” SLFP” to converted all SLFP’s into “New” UNP membership in 2020 Presidential Election.
    The MS man that seek Second Term of President after 2020 ,what he promised to Ranil Wicks has been step by step loosing ground that due to result of CB Bond scam committed crime by Ranil.Wicks in 2015 February 27 and September 30th 2015 .
    Ours political landscape has gradually turn into in favor of MS power grid. MS is getting better position inside UNP and outside” SLFP”, while that towing by TNA and JVP as real partnership.

This is what we say “owa gihin kiyapang konde’ bandapu cheenunta”. ඕවා ගිහින් කියපන් කොන්ඩේ බැඳපු චීනුන්ට . So lo and behold he is busier than Donald Trump not to know HOW a house was paid for and bought for? HE NEVER asked anyone in his family. This confirms what a friend told me. He said his wife was the collector for all the bribes and pay offs and used her goons to intimidate people around his mansion on Parliament Road.

    Ranil will never punish this rogue. It will be upto the President. Ranil backs him because RK was loyal to him during the power struggle.

      “They should be taken to Galle Face and stoned ISIS style”

      You should approach the lonely Field Marshall who said in 2010 if he won the elections he would drag the clan and cronies all the way to Galle Face green. I didn’t ask him why. Anyhow, speak to him and see if he knows anything that we do not know.

      The lonely public racist Field Marshall hasn’t kicked a big fuss about the unaccounted cash flow. Does it mean he was part of the crooked deal or it does not bother him at all and gracefully maintaining a deafening silent in order to be with the crooks. Or he is so stupid that he did not know what was happening around him.

      He too once claimed the country exclusively belonged to the Sinhala/Buddhists. He can keep the country for himself with all the crooks around him.

      Long live Sinhala/Buddhist fascism. Isn’t it what you personally aspired to?
