Prime Minister (PM) Ranil Wickremesinghe said yesterday (April 10th) that Sri Lanka should now go to Panama to find Sri Lankan owned money.
There are media reports, that the government is awaiting information on the alleged involvement of Sri Lankans in offshore financial dealings as revealed in the Panama Papers of the law firm Mossack Fonseca.
“Now, we all have to go to Panama City to find whether there is Sri Lankan owned money.
That revelation was also made by another Fonseca wasn’t it?” he asked. He made this remark when leaving the media briefing held at Temple Trees on the progress of the three-day China visit.
However the government has not yet made an official statement with regard to any investigation launched into the matter.
