Massive fraud revealed at Sugathadasa Sports Complex Authority in 2019

20 August 2020 12:08 am

Sugathadasa Sports Complex Authority (SSCA) is an authority under the ministry of sports. Its former board consisted of Dinuk DS Wijeratne, Prasanna Kurrupu, Nalaka Weerakody,  Suranjith Premadasa &  Shaminda Jayawardena and others. 

The Chairman of (SSCA) Dinuk DS Wijeratne, is a close confidant of former sports minister Harin Fernando. We have received information that minister Harin Fernando and SSCA Chairman Dinuk DS Wijeratne has given contracts to George Stuarts Engineering Private Limited, Bandara & Sons and Dinuk’s own MG Buildings …….

The MG Buildings & 3DH Design are companies owned by Dinuk DS Wijeratne, Dinuk Hettiarachchi, Shamal D.Rodrigo and another. It is understood that large mark ups have been kept for these individuals to benefit personally & profit their own companies.

Incidentally some of these contracts are in violation of “directors interest in contracts” as Dinuk De Wijeratne is the Chairman of SSCA and also involved in 3DH/3DH Design / MG Buildings. The tenders awarded to their own companies are overstated and is not done via a qualified contractor (Bogambara Stadium, Sugathdasa Gates contracts……….).

Communication on MG buildings with the SSCA and other vendors have been done using domain owned by 3DH Design Private Limited.

George Stuart Engineering was awarded a straight forward contact. This is in order to protect themselves in the event the government changes. While the government change was never expected, we understand  that they intended to seek the support of a person close to new regime who owns George Stuart Engineering. Reliable sources confirm that the Rajapakse regime will not close this matter and have ordered investigations on this.

The public demands that this be investigated and those guilty arrested.
