CID continues investigation of Jaffna's ex-GA

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 06 August 2003, 13:21 GMT]
The Jaffna Magistrate, Mr.R.T.Viknarajah, Wednesday instructed the court registrar to hand over the originals of seventeen cheques produced in court in connection with the case in which a former Jaffna Government Agent, Mr.K. Shanmuganathan, has been charged with criminal misappropriation of about forty million rupees allocated by the Rehabilitation and Reconstruction Authority for North (RRAN), legal sources said.

Inspector S.Dharmadasa, head of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), made an application to court Wednesday to obtain the originals of the seventeen cheques, which were in the custody of the court in connection with the alleged fraud. Mr.Shanmuganathan had issued these cheques to co-operative societies in Nallur, Jaffna and Kaithady, legal sources said.

On the earlier date, the photostat copies of the seventeen cheques were handed over to the CID for investigation on the orders of the court. However, the CID Inspector made the fresh application Wednesday that he needed the originals of the said cheques to conduct further investigation into this alleged fraud, court sources said.

The case is to be taken up for further inquiry on October 01, court sources said.

The CID filed plaint before the Jaffna Magistrate during the first week of July this year, charging the former government agent with defrauding RRAN on a complaint by the Ministry of Rehabilitation, Reconstruction and Resettlement. The RRAN comes under the Minister Dr.Jayalath Jayawardene.

According to the CID, the alleged offence had been committed during the period from 2000 to 2002. The RRAN allocated funds for about fourteen building projects, including the Kaithady Elders' Home and markets at Chavakachcheri, Thirunelvely and Kokuvil, legal sources said.
