Australian businessman Brian Shaddick stated that his complaint against MP Udaya Gammanpila involves fraud and corruption, and is not politically motivated.

A group of opposition parliamentarians visited the Magazine Prison Complex to meet Parliamentarian Udaya Gammanpila who is currently in remand custody. Gammanpila was remanded in connection to an incident where he is alleged to have fraudulently sold shares worth Rs.110 million  from a company owned by an Australian national, using a false attorney licence.

UPFA Parliamentarian, Dullas Alahapperuma stated that the police acts in an extremely arbitrary manner, as there is no complaint regarding it both locally or internationally. He added that the incident is over nineteen years.

Addressing a media briefing via Skype in Colombo, Australian businessman Bryan Shaddik noted that he only knows one politician’s name which is Udaya Gammanpila as he knows him “not as a politician but a thief and a person who steals peoples’ assets by defrauding them.”

He added that it has taken 20 years to take him to a court and present all the political arguments he wants.

Power-of-attorney holder for Brian Shaddick, Lasitha Perera noted to witness certified copies of the court proceedings and understand that it is not something which is politically motivated.

Minister of Education, Akila Viraj Kariyawasam noted that the previous administration used its influence to suppress the evidence.
