NEW DELHI: Sri Lanka has sought India's assistance in tracing $2 billion, allegedly stashed away in three accounts in Dubai by family members and aides of former president Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Sri Lankan investigators who began an investigation into financial deals sealed by the Rajapaksa government had traced $2 billion in Dubai banks, an official source from Colombo said. Of this, one account of a Rajapaksa family member allegedly has $1.064 billion, other two by two different persons have $500 million each in two separate accounts, the source said.

India along with the US have been approached to assist in the investigation to trace this huge amount. Both New Delhi and Washington are assisting with the probe, an Indian official source added. The Dubai money is estimated to account for 20% of the total amount Lankan authorities allege has been illicitly stashed abroad by the former president and his family. The family, however, has denied any wrongdoings and described the allegations as baseless.

Sirisena had during his visit to New Delhi last month shared details of the amount allegedly stashed away by Rajapaksa family in St Martin Islands, Hong Kong, Macau, Seychelles. He had also shared details about the huge investments allegedly made in real estate projects in Dubai, Uganda and Kenya.

That's some huge money for small island state like Srilanka . All without any doubt Chinese bribe ... Chinese does it with all other cash trapped countries . To buy their third class weapons , infrastructure etc with soft loans . Literally selling away their land. As they will come to an point where they can't afford to pay them back . Ended up giving away their land or face High taxation and threats from their navy.


Hope our friends in Pakistan taking note of this. Corruption can underestimate our national security as well .

Only god knows if Congress got huge Chinese yuan for compromising national security . So Delhi first have look into 10 years of corrupted rule by congress which showed unbelievable weaknesses and willingness to act against terror attacks , beheading , intrusion etc by our neighbours !

India should help in return for heavy benefits. India should tighten up their grip on lanka. We cannot let an island be taken over by China. lanka should remain under Indian hegemony.
