The call comes amidst an assurance by the Government that investigations are ongoing as to how the company, with links to Arjun Aloysius, the son in law of ex-Governor of Central Bank Arjuna Mahendran recorded such an exorbitant profit.

Joint Opposition leader MP Dinesh Gunawardena has said that the excessive profit can be charged under the Prevention of the Money Laundering Act. “The manner in which they earned such a massive profit is very suspicious, and therefore the government must take steps to immediately seal this company,” Gunawardena said.

Perpetual Treasuries Limited, recorded a profit of Rs. 5.1 billion for the year ending March 2016, which was an increase of 430% in profits in comparison to the previous year.

    JVP got their share. Two Suit cases full…………..

    The mystery lay in how the required monies were raised by the Perpetual from BoC in 15 minutes without the BoC Board approval?

    Under whose watch are the banks? In this instant the BoC?

    Why is Indrajith Coomaraswamy chasing after the Whistleblower instead of looking into the exposure in the leaked document which was never in dispute……….. Is Indrajith too led by his horns?

    good idea.They should seal it immediately.

    Arjun Mahendran should give this money to President Maithree so that he can deposit it in Central Bank. But Im not sure an individual can open a savings account in CB. And also Rs. 5.1 bn is so heavy to count in cashier.

    the whistleblower related CB documents show 10 billion profit,not the 5 billion shown in the accounts.all the more reason to seal it and get the CID into the place.No point in the FCID.That is only for going after mahinda loyalists not ranil’s royalists.
