HICORP transactions with SL Army:

Friend spills the beans

Company registered fraudulently:

Upul Ilangamage, an ex-Captain of the Sinha Regiment, a long-standing family friend of Sarath Fonseka and a resident of Oklahoma USA confirmed the arms deals in connection with Hicorp International Inc. managed by Fonseka’s son-in-law and its fraudulent registration.

He was exposing the duplicitous conduct of presidential candidate Sarath Fonseka to the media yesterday. He challenged Fonseka to disprove the documentary evidence submitted by him at the media briefing at the hotel Galadari yesterday.

Ilangamage claimed that his signature had been used fraudulently to legalize Hicorp International Inc. as the local agent of British Borneo Defence and legal action had already been taken against Danuna Tillakaratne and Ruvinda Gunaratna of Hicorp Internatioal Inc..

According to the summons issued by Oklahoma Country Court of USA Danuna Tilakaratne and Ruvinda Gunaratne on behalf of Hicorp International Inc. were ordered to provide written answers prior to Janaury 13, but Danuna Tilakaratne has appealed for another 20 days to provide the written answer to court.

Ilangamage stressed that the appeal for such extension is clearly to avoid exposing bank accounts related to Danuna’s arms deals with Sri Lanka before the Presidential election. Danuna Tilakaratne and his business partner Ruvinda Gunaratna were well-known to him before they started their business activities, he said.

“I was well aware of establishing Hicorp and the discussions related to their company with Fonseka. Some were directly related to the procurement of military weapons and amour to the Sri Lanka Army during Fonseka’s tenure”, he said .

Upul Ilangamage said he was forced to expose Sarath Fonseka’s multi-faceted character due to the love he had for the country.
