A racket by Chinthaka Jayanath came to light


(By Samantha Hewabandula)                             


Chinthaka Jayanath had been interdicted from his position in Sri Lanka Cricket for impersonating Chief Executive Officer of Sri Lanka Cricket Ashliey De Silva by placing his signature on official letters on letter heads of the institute.

He had been in this racket for some time while falsifying the CEO's signature on Sri Lanka Cricket letterheads to send people abroad. Even though this has been going on for some time, CEO Ashliey De Silva knew nothing about this impersonation.

Moreover, this doesn’t seem like a racket by Chinthaka Jayanath alone, since he cannot do this without the support of others in Sri Lanka Cricket. This racket brought him a huge wealth. Internal sources revealed that Chinthaka Jayanath is a close associate of Raveen Wickremarathne, who too was in this deal.

At least since this racket got exposed at this moment, President of Sri Lanka Cricket, Shammi Silva should deal with it seriously and bring him to book. Chinthaka Jayanath had joined the institute by the time Jayantha Dharmadasa was the President of Sri Lanka Cricket.
