The Panama Papers the largest ever release of secret offshore companies and the people behind them. The Panama Papers are an unprecedented leak of 11.5m files from the database of the world’s fourth biggest offshore law firm, Mossack Fonseca. The records were obtained from an anonymous source by the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung, which shared them with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ).

The database does not disclose the totality of the leaked records. It doesn’t divulge raw documents or personal information en masse. It contains a great deal of information about company owners, proxies and intermediaries in secrecy jurisdictions, but it doesn’t disclose bank accounts, email exchanges and financial transactions contained in the documents.Avant Garde

    Will the FCID even question those persons above how their names came to be within the Mossack Fonseca database? Where did these persons get the money that they laundered in these off shore facilities? Can the FCID at lease request their passports to be surrendered until some of the questions are answered. I am sure the present laws in Sri Lanka allows that. We are talking about fraud of a massive scale.

      Now we dont need to stay discussion on the issues, we only need to get these sums back to the country and gap up the billions of debts Maharaja made during the last few years. That way, the current govt can win the people.

      And not forgetting all these men should be sent to jail at least for 10 years. In Germany if they did the kind of acts, regardless of the status he or she would have been sent to JaiL:

      Goraka,

      I think you are correct. In his interview with “Mokada Une” program (Derana TV on 6th Dec. 2015) has declared that he is still using Motor bike. So Panama papers must be wrong or if the Senadhipathi is correct money should belongs to the other person who is next to Senadhipathi in the picture.

      Hello, bugger became a billionaire with Gota connections, before that this Senadhipathi man had no money, lived six days a week in his vehicle using public toilets. Read Nissanka’s interviews. That is why he is very closed to Gota and Gota always defends this man’s floating shit. I don’t see any wrong publishing Gota’s pic.

This is the problem with most of the CT commentators who are demanding blood of MR, GR etc. Every other individual should sing hosnas to RW-My3-CBK junta according to them. Shame!

        The IR & CB are duty bound to act as per their Regulations and need not await a COI on this revelation. Unless they have already got into DEALS, they should by now have issued Registered letters to those named Lankans to make Declarations, commencing with the 2013 Leaks. It is reported that India has done this already. Why
        is SL not following this logical step?

    avant garde was a daylight robbery of the income that should have rightfully belonged to the srilankan navy which could have easily done the job that avant garde was doing.DR.Senaratne the minister was the man who made a howl about it when everyone else was quiet because they must have got benefits from senadipathi who was giving bribes left and right shamelessly and openly.

    Strangely Dr.seneratne has gone quiet after his sickness.Did senadipathi contribute to that?If so Dr.seneratne has got the message loud and clear that “we can get you if we want to,so shut up”.

    Fonseka also has gone quiet on this after senadipathi brought out some tapes of his conversations with him where fonseka had solicited funds for his office refurbishment etc.As for all the others lets forget about them,because money speaks in srilanka and fron the cayman bank accounts we know the gigantic amounts involved.

      @Raj (and to the rest of the Gota apologists):

      It could well be because Gota was the man behind the illegal Avant Garde money spinner and was hiding behind Senadhipathi, who was (is?) one of his front men.

        Could you kindly elaborate on how and who declaired ‘Avant Garde’illegal?
        There are other companies who provide the same services ie.maritime surity to ships,ans why they are not illegal.
        Jarajitha and PaCha demanded money from him and he refused since they defected to UNP camp and they took revange that all.
        Now Avant Garde is destroyed and case closed.

    Pathetic journalism CT. Go get a life! You have become so bankrupt to drag Gota into this? True, Gota must have helped AG to get the business going because IT IS ILLEGAL FOR SL NAVY TO ENGAGE IN SUCH A BUSINESS.
    @Shankar- What Dr Senaratne had done with his foul mouth was to stop much needed forex which was earned by the country via Avant Garde.

    letters to those named Lankans to make Declarations, commencing with the 2013 Leaks. It is reported that India has done this already.
    The slow moves of MS/RW can follow later, when the two Authorities can
    be questioned as to what the did or did not do in regard to Panama Papers?
    Commentators are more worried about whose mug-shot CT has for the article, than the amount of money that can help the country`s debts.
