Namal Rajapaksa Named Suspect In Money Laundering Case Over Company Allegedly Owned By Him

The FCID, on Attorney General's advise, have named UPFA MP Namal Rajapaksa and six others as suspects in a money laundering case regarding the Gowers Corporate Services (Pvt.) Ltd. allegedly owned by him.

This was informed to the Colombo Magistrate Courts today by the FCID.

The investigation by the FCID is being carried out on a complaint by Voice Against Corruption Convener Wasantha Samarasinghe. The complaint alleges that Rajapaksa bought shares of a company named Hellocorp while being a MP, from the money he has earned by illegal means.

This company is now known as the Gowers Corporate Services (Pvt) Limited, the complaint said further.

On March 9, Colombo Additional Magistrate Nishantha Peiris ordered four fixed deposits of Gowers Corporate Services (Pvt) Limited, allegedly owned by MP Namal Rajapaksa, to be frozen over the investigation under Money Laundering Act.
