Panama exposure :How did ex chairman of CEB Amarapala amass so much wealth? Is it Champika’s illicit commissions? Name list herein

(Lanka-e-News -10.April.2016, 11.55PM)  With the exposures following the Panama papers alias ‘Panama exposure’ which triggered a storm of controversy world wide , and after the information  regarding the hidden wealth of illicit earnings coming to light, the finger is pointing at minister Champika Ranawake since the name of Vidya Amarapala is in the list of Sri Lankan names.

Based on  the revelations of  the legal firm  ‘Mosek – Fonseka’  which kept the  information hidden of the wealthiest individuals in  the ‘Panama exposure,’ there are a number of popular Sri Lankan businessmen in the Sri Lankan name list . In that name  list below the name of Race by race magnate Jagath Sumathipala is that of Vidya Dilruk Amarapala alias Vidya Amarapala . 

It is no secret that Jagath Sumathipalas have more than enough earnings to conceal , but that is not the case with  Vidya Amarapala. 

Vidya Amarapala is a very close and long time friend of minister Champika Ranawake . The latter after becoming the minister of power and energy at that time , appointed Vidya Amarapala as the chairman of the Electricity board. Prior to that Amarapala was not a businessman . Besides before or after that he never held any post in a State Institution.

 In the circumstances , how did Vidya Amarapala come by  so  much enormous wealth so as to conceal that  with the ‘Mosaic Fonseka’legal Firm ?  On the face of it these are the inordinately large illicit commissions he had earned while he was the chairman of the electricity board. If that is so, could that have been  done without the knowledge of Champika Ranawake ?  Or , are those  the illicit  commission earnings of  Champika Ranawake when he was the minister in charge ?

It is best if the government of good governance conducts a probe into this and provides answers . Champika Ranawake who wears spotless white attire and parades as a patriot must also furnish an answer before his white attire gets discolored and prove that he is not unworthy of his white spotless attire . 

It is also paramount that the hidden assets of all those whose names are concealed in the Panama papers be put under the microscope and investigated .

Minister Champika seems to be good administrator and politician. Just because someone close to him get adverse publicity due to handling of funds which seems to be black , It does not mean that Minister is involved in the fraud. However it is up to Bribery commission to carry out investigation on Srilankans whose name are associate with Panama revelations. Does Bribery commission need a complaint to act on these ? Does not commission think that are paid to act on best interest of the country. ? Wake up please. Play your role by the people of the country.
