Golden Key depositors to be repaid from June
Golden Key depositors have been assured that their dues would be
repaid in instalments.
President of the All Depositors Association, Dushanthi Hapugoda said
that this is the best news they had received after two years.
"We were just paid in driblets and there was no concrete plan to
settle our dues. However, with this proposed re-payment plan, we are
assured that we would get a larger share of our deposits", she said.
She said the former CEO of Golden Key, Kavan Perera has assured them
that they would also be paid an interest of six percent. According to
the settlement plan which is being proposed, 30 percent of the total
deposit would be paid this year in two instalments. This would be made
in June and December. The remaining deposits would be made in the
following three years.
"This would be done by selling assets and the revenue collected by
formulating a Golden Key Holding Company.
"We must also thank President Mahinda Rajapaksa, President's
Secretary Lalith Weeratunga, Central Bank Governor Ajith Cabraal and
Attorney General Mohan Pieris," Hapugoda said.
She said they were disappointed with some of the high ranking
officials of Ceylinco who were turning a blind eye to this issue.
