Internal Trade Minister Johnston Fernando is to travel to Singapore this morning to participate in a secret discussion about an international racket concerning Sri Lanka. HE has arranged for a secret meeting with former Thai Prime Minister Thakshin Shinawatra.
Johnston has arranged for a one day stop over in Singapore on his way to attend an official summit in Bangkok, Thailand because of this secret meeting with Thakshin.
Johnston’s business partner Rizly Illiyas also known Money Laundering Dida is to also accompany the Minister during the secret meeting. This racketeer businessman is also the Secretary of the Sri Lanka Rugby Football Union.
Illiyas had got Thakshin to secretly visit Sri Lanka on several occasions after he was ousted as the Thai Premier and had organized several secret meetings at the Airport Garden Hotel.
Thakshin Shinawatra had arrived in his private jet at the Katunayake Airport on all those occasions and our website previously reported that he had met with Johnston and one of the chief racketeers in the Colombo Stock market, Asanga Seneviratne.
The main aim of the discussions had been to find a way of investing the former Thai Premier’s ill gotten monies in Sri Lanka.
Therefore, he had given monies to buy stocks in the Colombo stock market and to purchase shares in several media institutions.
It is learnt that Johnston’s secret talks with him this time is on getting monies to buy stocks of another media institution and a leading private bank in Colombo.
Unconfirmed reports state that while Asanga Seneviratne was MP Namal Rajapaksa’s rugby coach, these secret discussions are taking place with Namal’s knowledge.
It is also learnt that the former Thai PM had made all arrangements for a luxurious stay for Johnston and Money Laundering Dida who are to travel to Bangkok after one day stop over in Singapore.
