Rs.1.9 B fraud by foreign financial companies 

Officials of four foreign financial institutions are reported to have left the country after having duped Sri Lankan depositors of Rs.1.9 billion, the United National Party (UNP) said yesterday. UNP front-liner Ravi Karunanayake raised this matter in parliament during question time and urged the government to investigate this massive fraud.

He said these financial institutions which were only authorized to carry out currency exchange operations had accepted deposits from several people who were expecting quick returns

Later Mr. Karunanayake told Daily Mirror that some officials attached to the Ministerial Security Division and relatives of some high profile people had deposited funds in these dubious companies that carried out their businesses from offices located on the 14th floor of the World Trade Centre East tower.
