US: INVESTIGATION LEADS TO GUILTY PLEA FROM FORMER SRI LANKAN AMBASSADOR FOR DEFRAUDING SRI LANKAN GOVERNMENT

A news release from US Immigration & Customs Enforcement on 1 April advised that an investigation has led to a guilty plea by a former Sri Lankan ambassador to the US for diverting and attempting to embezzle funds from the government of Sri Lanka. Jaliya Chitran Wickramasuriya, 61, attempted to misappropriate $332,027during the government’s 2013 purchase of a new embassy building in Washington DC.
