“Gowers Corporate Services Pvt Ltd has recorded an earning of Rs. 81 million in the 2013/2014 financial year”

The police Financial Crimes Investigations Division (FCID) has last week raided a company operated by former First Son and United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa as part of a probe being carried out under the Money Laundering Act.

The FCID is carrying out a probe covering the operations of six companies operated by Rajapaksa – Hello Corp Pvt Ltd, Gowers Corporate Services Pvt Ltd, Gowers Solutions, Gowers Secretariat, Gowers Ceylon Holdings and NR Consultancy.

The Sunday Leader learns that FCID officers had commenced a probe on Gowers Corporate Services Pvt Ltd on Friday and is to continue investigating the other companies as well.

The FCID probe is expected to uncover the sources of funding for these companies and its earnings as well as how the monies were utilised.

Gowers Corporate Services Pvt Ltd, which was floated with the sale of 100 Rs. 10 shares, had purchased Hello Corp Pvt Ltd for a sum of Rs. 100 million even before completing a year in operation, FCID sources said. Despite claims that the monies were raised through loans and by the sale of NR Consultancy to a Bangladeshi national for Rs. 50 million, the FCID is yet to find proper evidence that could prove this fact. In fact, Gowers Corporate Services Pvt Ltd has recorded an earning of Rs. 81 million in the 2013/2014 financial year. The Sunday Leader further learns that MP Namal Rajapaksa has already been questioned by the FCID over the investigation into the six companies.

  5. This guy is like his father. Father is like his son/sons. The cases are opening up. Good research. This family never thought that they will ever get caught. Now they are caught, tied by the rope but their mouths are still open. Those mouths are to be shut forever. I cannot understand how these media ourlets are still publishing the opinions from these unwanted idiots. They have ruined our beautiful country. Stupid newspapers. JESUS CHRIST help our country and its people..
    With God’s blessings.

    It looks like the first and the biggest “Scum Bag” of Alibaba’s family is the culprit. This warp minded family did not even owe a small “bulath viti” kade in their family’s history. The citizens of Sri Lanka so naive not to question these dirty buggers, on how they did become billionaires in a very short period.

    Hello
    Sri Lanka, was always a 3rd world corrupt country and it will stay this way for the next 200 years. The only reason been, that is run by Sinhalese and that is the downfall for the lovely Island.
    Nothing will come out of any of these so called probes.
    It is better if the Tax payyers money is spent on providin free booze and drugs to the poor citizens.

    Tell me of a single politician properly punished and the stolen wealth recovered other than in the case of Mrs B? The next 5 years will pass with more frauds than what is talked of today & will get buried as before. Already the Central bank matter is pending & nothing will happen!

      What are you saying fool? Do you compare the CB matter to this colossal fraud?? occurred during the past decade by every member of the family and their faithful servants?
      Did the banker run away and stashed away our state wealth.? Come off it dodo.

  12. There is always two sides yo every story, a judge hears both sides of the story before a condemned man is found guilty.

    Rajapakse family and anyone conected to that family is tried and found guilty by the media without hearing both sides of the story on the instructions of this so called ‘Yahapalanaye’ government and its fake CID. This government is taking instructions from the European Union, UK, USA and the Tamil LTTE Diaspora to destroy the Sinhela Nation by the Sinhela people.

    Vindictive people with their noses up in the air are cluless to their own traitorus actions, by the time they open their eyes not only the Nation but they too will be destroyed.
