The Colombo Chief Magistrate yesterday ordered the Controller of Immigration and Emigration to prevent nine senior management officers attached to the Central Investments & Finance Ltd. (CIFL) from leaving the country, in connection with alleged money laundering and committing criminal breach of trust involving the money of depositors.
Nine senior management officers who had been noticed to appear before Chief Magistrate Gihan Pilapitiya were present in Court and they were severely warned to cooperate with ongoing CID investigations into the matter.
However, the nine officers Thusitha Nandiratne, Senaka Peiris, Damayanthi Vithanage, Shantha Dasanayake, Chandima Perera, Roshani Jayawardane, Indeewari Neligama, Gregory Smith and Chaminda Nishantha Pallawala were ordered to be temporarily released from the case.
