A media briefing was held in Colombo on Wednesday, requesting that investigations into an alleged financial fraud committed against Australian businessman, Brian Shaddick, be expedited.

Attorney-At-Law Lasitha Perera noted that the initial complaint filed is with regard to the transfer of shares and today, the value of those shares is Rs.110 million, in addition, there was another business in which Brian Shaddick had invested in.

“Udaya Gamanpila got together with other directors of that company, and sold his rights to another company,” he said further noting that there is the tea factory in Walallawita, Matugama, that belongs to this company, and that tea factory was sold for 190 million.

He added that all the relevant documents pertaining to this matter has been handed over to the police, and there is a ‘huge suspicion’ surrounding this issue since the investigations have concluded but no arrests have been made. He further stated that it will be good if answers can be provided for these matters, instead of pointing fingers and directing these frauds to other political parties or politicians.
