We Don’t Have US $500 M Bank Account In Dubai: Namal Rajapaksa

Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa today denied allegations that one of his family members had a bank account in Dubai with a deposit of US $500 million.

Speaking to the media on recent allegations that a son of a VVIP had a secret bank account in Dubai and former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s sons may be involved, Namal the eldest son of

Namal and MahindaRajapaksa today said that neither he nor his brothers had any such account.

Namal Rajapaksa told media that not even his parents had such a foreign account. He described this as another attempt to discredit his family.

Media reports said that the Sri Lankan government had initiated a judicial process in Dubai requesting the government there to freeze a bank account owned by a son of a VVIP, while pointing out that the monies have been earned through illegal means.

Media reports said that the son of this VVIP was a current parliamentarian.

These reports further clarified that the account originally contained US $1 billion and after, the judicial process was initiated the owner of the account had transferred US $500 million to a bank account in another foreign country.

Speaking to the media on the issue Cabinet spokesman, Minister Rajitha Senaratne meanwhile said that officials in Dubai have already confirmed of the existence of the account.

Senarathe had earlier said that Sri Lankan investigators have located more than $2 billion that was secretly transferred to accounts in Dubai by figures close to the administration of former president Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Senaratne said the funds represented about of fifth of the total amount of so-called ‘black money’ that the authorities suspect was illicitly stashed abroad.

“We have information that more than $10 billion, more than our country’s foreign reserves, is kept outside the country by those closely related to the last government,” Senarathne had said.

Describing the accounts found in Dubai, Senaratne said: “One person from a leading family held $1.064 billion. Another account under a parliament member’s name had over $500 million and a secretary to a very important person had over $500 million jointly with another person, who is very famous for corruption.”

Senaratne did not say who held the accounts. He said it had also identified large withdrawals, including one of $600 million, from accounts belonging to people who had worked with Rajapaksa’s government.

However Rajapaksa family members have repeatedly denied such accusations in the past.

    You are right Namal- How unfair!!! How come they can quote US$ 500 Million since you are having more than a US$ a billion???? Ohhh very unfair. You should have done exactly what your Dad did. The cunning fox Operated his HSBC Account only through UK Branch and access denied to HSBC counterpart in Sri Lanka or any Asian regional office.
    If I’m mistaken, ask your Dad!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      You keep quiet, time will solve the problem, whether or not having those accounts. Lies of this kind will not live longer. And Satana program held day before yesterday made it very clear the way AVANGARD abused state powers to collect their huge sums. Those attended there were former army men. They should have known how megalomaniac the Rajapakshes ahve been.

      The greater mistake that MR accompanying is he thought very same folks would let him fooling on a repeated mode. But it ended up this way – calling them all today as PAL HORU BORN TO MADAMULANA. As a parasite attack could kill all the vegetation, Rjapakashe birth started to destroy and erode the nation to the very same manner, living Gadafi family kith and kin went on doing it to their own nations. But in the end, Rajapakshe was lucky to remain unhurt by physical attackes, since majority folks of this torn paradise are born fools (over 50%) while arabs over there in Lybia were every emotional being unable to bear the damage.
      This teethless Namal baby should be brought before the courts, as it is reproted, his has sowed untold kids to country`s young girls.

      MR Banda,

      The money siphoned from this little Island is in billions
      during the past regime and not mere $500/-million, which could not be the amount Namal should hold proportionately as he ranks 02nd or 03rd in the line to the throne. Pls do not stir up the people but stir the govt. with the question as to where is the money held in this planet and why ‘Yahapalana” govt. is silent about it. They brag that
      they have the backing of the entire international community but none
      came forward to find the people’s money while the people are staving.
      People know where the money could be and those govts.harbouring, should get the money released to the treasury where it belongs to.

      Now onwards we should ask Mangala Samaraweera, Ranil Wicks and Ravi
      as to when they should be able to recover the monies due to the people. They may not go full speed ahead as nepotism and corruption
      have already started in the current Govt. and its a ‘you starch my
      back and I scratch yours’ situation, prevailing now. So folks, pls
      mind your OWN business until next elections.

      “He described this as another attempt to discredit the family.”

      This playboy and ‘lowyer’ has forgotten how he and his uncle Nishanta discredited the families of their ‘flying angels’ whilst Medamulana Meeharaka was in power. As I have stated repeatedly one attempted suicide while a few delivered the goods outside Sri Lanka for fear of shame ! Appears everything is swept under the carpet for a consideration??

    Everything will be disclosed in the very near future.
    Then everyone will be aware of the dirty games of Rajapaksha Family.
    Unfortunately perpetrators will be not brought to justice and incarcerated by the Authorities.

    Classic example is Buruwansa’s passport case.
    Gonston’s case.
    Basil’s case.
    Shiranthi’s brother’s case.

    Nothing happened.

    Even in Dubai, you cannot keep a billion $ account hidden – Rajitha should respect his position and speak with responsibility.

    If the matter is true, there is nothing to be gained by announcing it as it would certainly jeopardize the investigations. If it was not true, then it is a deprivation of a citizen’s fundamental right to be pronounced guilty after being so proven.

    The abuses of the Rajapakse and the unbridled abuse of privileges are very apparent yet, strangely, when it comes to belling the cat the present government seems to be walking on egg shells.

    Rajitha’s uncouth and street-like way of communicating as a cabinet spokesperson is an insult to the said body – he needs to be changed to someone with some decorum and responsibility

    • 16

      I agree with Just Saying. The style of Rajitha is good for the gallery. He should study how the spokesmen for non rogue countries speak and learn from them. I remember him saying in the Satana political program, a long time back (2014) only one phone call is necessary to get someone extradited. Rajitha despite his small stature has a mouth as big as the Lincoln Tunnel of NY. The Lincoln tunnel serves a useful purpose by carrying traffic while Rajitha’s mouth disgorges only garbage.

      Perhaps he cannot blamed for that. He his disgoges the garbage created by our Govt.

      Charges have been made against many before too and then everything fizzled out. The Govt has lost credibility. I too want the MARA family, whom everyone feels have swindled the country, to be brougt to justice. But this Govt is not going to do it.

      When other means are not working people may resort to mob justice. That is my fear.

      The Yahapalana Boot Lickers have yet to indict ONE SINGLE PERSON on these claims.

      Surely with the combined investigative acumen of US, UK, Dubai and Switzerland, you’d think it would be oh-so-easy to find these Billions of Dollars. After all, any poor fool transferring more than 10,000 USD anywhere in the world is flagged as a potential terror financier by these mighty nations. It would be child’s play to find the so-called MARA Billions, no ?

      Nothing so far… which in my book points to:

      Yahapalana Incompetence
      Yahapalana Fakery (aka BS)
      Yahapalana Complicity
      Or it’s all smoke and mirrors designed to fool the gullible howlers

    How come only Rajitha ” Bucket Mouth” Senaratna knows all the finer details of Rajapakasas Billion Dollar accounts in Bedouin Banks?

    What happened to Bodhi Sira who was the Secretary General of the ruling Srilanka Freedom Party and one of the most senior and powerful Cabinet ministers ?.

    Was Sira on Siesta for 10 years..

    Or was he put in to a Coma by the Rajapakasa Kattadiyas ( Voodoo Docs) so that he has a memory lapse.

    Will that be an excuse when he will face the Hybrid Prosecutors’ grilling about what he knew about the last phase of Pirahaparan’s liberation battle in Nanthikadal?.

    And when the Hybrid prosecutors ask him why he, as the all powerful Defence Minister didn’t instruct his Army Commanders to use feather Dusters to Shoo away Mr Pirahaparan so that the e Sriankan Army soldiers could have released the 300,000 Captives whom Mr Pirahaparan used as sand bags.

    Has Bodhi Sira already got an indemnity for helping the West to install the UNP Christian Faction as the Government and undertaking the task of duping the Sinhala Budhhists majority about the impending disaster of the division of the nation and their marginalization.

      KAS. For the first time you have got a valid point. Why Bodi SIRA keeping his Stupid mouth shut??
      He was in the making of these murderers and thieves.
      He was in the middle of it. He should have known all was goings on is he part of the game with MARA?

      It’s time for him to open his mouth which is. Sealed and shut by his master , the mistress and the whole gang.
      He is part of the gang when it comes to Analyse.

      We have crooks and murderers again in the ruling of this shameless Disgraced country in which we have become part of it.

      Oh Sumaney, Sumaney. Still beating the drum for the Rajapakses. If you had read my comments elsewhere, you would note I wished these accusation (or rumours) of illicit funds in foreign banks stopped. If Namal has nothing to hide, he should sue the people spreading these false stories that he has $500 million stashed away. Sri Lankan authorities may not have the clout to investigate in foreign banks but the FBI certainly has, as shown by their investigations into FIFA and HSBC money laundering charges.

    Maybe officials should investigate and publicize a list of businesses and real estate acquired by the Rajapaksa rogues, and their front men, in Sri Lanka, and other nations. The Rajapaksa’s also became proud owners of shiny, new, fast cars, during their reign. How can they acquire so much with their government salaries, if they were not fleecing the country? The Rajapaksa brats wore designer brands, lastest expensive watches, and behaved like they came from wealth, when we know they did not. Rumors are that they (especially Namal) together with their thuggish uncle, Gota, took millions in commissions. Surely it will not be that difficult to get to the bottom of it all? They may have stashed their ill gotten gains in the most hard to get places, but there are other ways to get to that information, especially with the help of other nations.

    If they are not guilty, they would cooperate.

    There Sumane goes again, typical racist comment to protect the PLUNDERERS OF THE STATE.

    How much of the plundered wealth is in your account Pal. You seem hell bent on protecting the MARA FAMILY despite all these stark revelations of state plundering running into Millions of Dollars.

    But then, you can only take the donkey to the water, can you make it drink Sumane. I don’t think so.

    With all due respect to you though, I am not calling you a donkey. That would be an under statement.

    Be in touch pal, otherwise we will be bored without your racist comments.

    Now you have added on Bedouin also to the equation, that’s very interesting, keep them coming, will help you in your future racist comments involving the prince at the U.N.

    See everything is working against MARA and you. Seems like the conspiracy has been hatched some 45 years ago by the Princess’s father. I am not sure of his age though. You surely can help me with your deep insight into every intricacy of the worldwide conspiracy against one and only MARA, your mentor and financier.

    I am no fan of the Rajapakses but it would be unfair to accuse them of having secret accounts without the evidence. If what Namal says is true, he should sue Senaratne for defamation of character otherwise these allegations have a tendency to stick. We probably do not have the machinery to investigate illegal funds in foreign countries but in the light of the FBI in USA successfully investigating FIFA Offiders, bribes and also HSBC for money laundering, we should be seeking their help.

    MS has developed a foolproof technique to keep the bloodhounds off the track:

    Step – 1: Keep mum. People will first make a big ha ho and then slowly forget it. At the rate the corpses are being dug out, who can keep track, anyway?

    Step -2: If Step 1 does not produce the desired results, ask for a report from some goon. This is bound to make most bloodhounds who go past Step -1 to stop and think.

    by an overzealous goon, give it the Step -1 treatment. (i.e.) keep mum about it. Soon the number of eager bloodhounds drop to a handful and they too are tiring and having doubts about the hunt.

    Step – 4: Highlight another corpse. This is a diversionary tactic successfully applied even in warfare and is bound to bury the old corpse forever.
