RADA Fraud Case: Court Allows Tiran To Travel Overseas

The Colombo High Court has granted permission for former Parliamentarian Tiran Alles to travel to Singapore for medical treatment, after his passport was impounded last year in connection to a financial fraud investigation at the Reconstruction and Development Agency (RADA).



The Colombo High Court Judge A.R. Heiyanthuduwa granted permission to Alles to travel to Singapore for two weeks within the next three months.

Permission was granted after the judge considered a report by JMO Ajith Tennakoon. Alles who is currently out on bail over the RADA case, was imposed an additional cash bail of Rs. 100,000 with one surety of Rs. 500,000.

n April last year, Alles, was barred from leaving the country, following a case against him where RADA, chaired by him and established to reconstruct houses for tsunami victims was charged with misappropriating state funds. Along with Alles, five other suspects were also barred from leaving the country. RADA is reported to have obtained Rs. 645 million from the Treasury to build houses, but no houses had been constructed.

Meanwhile the Police confirmed that the funds collected by the company were credited to Oomps textiles Ltd. – another fake company formed by three individuals identified as Shanthi Kumar, Gajan Kumar and their mother Anandi Shanthi Kumar. The Court had been informed today that through this company and two other bogus companies, a total of Rs. 125 million has been misappropriated by the Company. It was also mentioned that the State funds paid to Oomps Textiles Ltd. had been taken over by Alles and former LTTE-er Emil Kanthan.

      A bloody farce for sure. Titan was the point man and go-between MR and the LTTE to win the 2005 elections. He was the cause for MR being illegally elected after negotiating with the LTTE. These two, including Basil and Gota should be arrested for having illegal business dealing last with a terrorist organization. The money they got paid would have been used to kill our soldiers. Think about that! Now they are let scott free by an overly generous government.

    If you have money in Sri Lanka, even ill gained money, you can move mountains, certainly the JMOs who are ever willing to give false certificates and magistrates and judges, politicians, police and so on. This is Sri Lanka. Forfeiting Rs. 600,000 for a man like Alles is like forfeiting peanuts.

    Bloody rogues like this walking around freely, I hope Singapore deports him !

    They seem to have the same arrogance that they had when the POXES were in power and their bum sucking was it its height .

    What has to change in this Country is the entire SYSTEM and the very fabric of society. Can this happen through democracy ?

      True and no. Not for another 2400 years at least,until the next ‘Buddha’. It is the downward trend that ‘The Gouthama Buddha’ mentioned 2600 odd years ago.
