Schoolboys using drugs to increase sex drive

Evaluations made by the National Medicinal Drug Authority (NMDA) have revealed that the use of sexual enhancement drugs among schoolboys has rapidly increased during recent times.

Although there is only about 5% of the population are suffering from sexual incompetence, the amount of people who are taking sexual enhancement medicine is nearly 85%.

The most popular sexual enhancement medicine among schoolboys is a tablet known as "sildenafi", due to its cheaper price (Rs.100 per tablet).

It is said that nearly a Million of these tablets are imported to Sri Lanka every year.

According to the law, this drug cannot be sold without a prescription. However, some pharmacies in Colombo and suburbs are said to be selling this without checking on a prescription in order to earn larger profits.

According to reports, by selling these drugs these pharmacies are getting nearly 35% profits.
According to the evaluations, it has also been revealed that some of the schoolboys have been used to consume even 2 or 3 tablets instead of 1.

According to medical opinion, usage of this enhancement medicine without any sexual incompetence could result in actual sexual incompetence in the future.

Expressing his views on the matter, Dr. Shantha Hettiarachchi says that the main reason behind this is the addiction of young men to watch obscene videos in the internet.

He said that although these pornographic movies depict hours long sexual activities, those are only entertainment tricks.

He further warned that this medicine increases blood pressure, and it could cause adverse affects on the people with problems in the heart, lungs, and the respiratory system.

Namal challenged, President concerned

President Mahinda Rajapaksa is apparently concerned over the challenge that has come into light at the recently held PC polls elections against his son MP Namal Rajapaksa who, up until recent times, was considered the only youth leader of the government.

According to reports from the United States, where the President is currently attending 68th Session of the UN General Assembly in New York, the President's concern is rising from two main reasons.

One reason is said to be the crushing defeat suffered by Namal's close friend Johan Fernando, to whom Namal openly gave his support against Mr. Dayasiri Jayasekara.

The other is the sudden entrance of two youngsters from founding families of the SLFP in Matale and Kandy districts to the political arena with massive preferential votes.

Mr. Dayasiri Jayasekara's titanic heap of preferences has also surprised the President, reports say.

Although President's close aide MP Lakshman Wasantha Perera tried to hinder the election campaign of Pramitha Bandara Tennakoon - son of Minister Janaka Bandara Tennakoon, Pramitha got the highest preference count from Matale.

Furthermore, President had not expected Anuradha Jayaratne, son of Prime Minister D. M. Jayaratne, to top the preferential votes list.

Speaking to a senior minister said that the President, whose sole ambition is to attain his son to the presidential seat, become President, had even trapped Shasheendra Rajapaksa, a young politician with a growing fame at the time by making him the Uva CM in order to bring Namal into national politics.

She has said that organizers of these events are sending contestants under the influence of bribes, even without holding a competition to select the beauty queens.

Noting that these racketeers are conducting this fraud by obtaining millions of Rupees and later faking 'competitions' by taking photographs of pageant crowning at some formal or public event, in order to send it to foreign contest organizers.

Later, these contestants are not even sent to the promised foreign competitions after coming up with false reasons.

Monali says that she was promised to be sent to the Miss Tourism World contest and even had photographs taken of a faked local pageant.

However, organizers had later decided not sent her to the contest and had even come up with a fake excuse for her absence. In this case, they had lied to the foreign pageant organizers saying that Monali would not be able to attend the competition as she has broken her leg.

PM's son's CM post confirmed ?

Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa, brother of the President, has summoned the Prime Minister D. M. Jayaratne's son Anuradha Jayaratne who got the highest preferential votes in the recently held Central Provincial Council election, to his Ministry and has promised that he would be getting the Chief Minister post in the Central Provincial Council.

Minister Basil Rajapaksa has informed that there would not be any need for the Prime Minister to resign in order for his son to become the Chief Minister.

Calling the UPFA Secretary Minister Susil Premajayanth after that, Minister Rajapaksa has informed him to propose the name of Anuradha Jayaratne for the CM post in the Central Provincial Council at the oncoming UPFA party leaders meeting.

However, President Mahinda Rajapaksa had previously decided not to give the Chief Minister post to anyone despite preferences, if in case a close relative of the candidate is representing the Cabinet.

But, on the contrary to his own policy, he appointed Shashindra Rajapaksa, son of President's elder brother, as the CM in Uva Province when he got the highest preferences form the election, despite the fact that his father was a Cabinet Minister at that time.

CIFL scam robs Pathirana's adviser post

Mr. P. V. Pathirana, a former general manager of the People's Bank, has been removed from the post he held as an adviser in the Finance ministry.

Mr. Pathirana also worked as an adviser in a project set up under World Bank aid.

The project had been deployed in order to provide financial aid for the small and medium scale industries which have fallen into trouble due to the current global economic crisis.

It is said that the main reason behind this decision is the order given by the Colombo Fort chief magistrate Mr. Thilina Gamage to issue notices to 3 Directors in the Central Investments & Finance PLC (CIFL) company including him to appear before the Court on the 16th September.

Even Mr. Gamini Karunathilake, who was the CEO of Merchant Bank of Sri Lanka (MBSL) for a time, has been subjected to this accusation.

Mr. Karunathilake has been appointed as the CEO of CIFL on January this year, after the company was hit by the crisis.

It is said that it was the Central Bank which had recommended him for the job.

They have issued these cheques, with the intention of rebuilding the trust of the company by settling the deposit money of the customers, during the reformulating process of CIFL.

For that, he had signed for them under the capacity of CEO.

Apart from that, CIFL former Chairman and Director, Chartered Accountant Lakshman Rupasinghe, Directors Joseph Douglas and Ajith Prabath also have been accused of these "Cheque bounce case".
However, it is reported that all these people have been misled by the financial authorities.

The attorney who represented Mr. Rupasinghe and Mr. Karunathilake informed the Court that they were appointed recently, thus have no knowledge of the past transactions.

Meanwhile, it has been revealed that it was the former CEO of Merchant Credit of Sri Lanka which is attached to BOC, Mr. Shirley Perera, who had held many key positions in CIFL including the release of its initial shares, up until the company was brought under the ASPIC company belonging to Deepthi Perera.

It is said that he is a person who had been warned by the Central Bank regarding the failure in reporting unpaid debts in Merchant Credit during his time of employment.

CIFL bankrupted : 6000 in trouble

Nearly 6000 investors who had deposited nearly 3.4 Billion Rupees in Central Investment and finance Ltd have fallen into utter helplessness due to the bankruptcy of the institution.

The CIFL company which had even halted their grant of interest to the depositors since last December, is a registered financial company in the Central Bank.

The CIFL depositors association says that one of the major reasons for the collapse of many financial institutions in Sri Lanka is the lack of proper supervision of the CB.

In an inquiry made regarding this, a spokesperson in the CB told BBC Sandeshaya that steps have being taken to bring perestroika to CIFL.

SL approves Crown's $350m Casino deal and JKH's $ 650m project

  • Australia’s gaming tycoon’s venture to entail over $ 350 m investment
  • JKH’s mega $ 650 m project will get concessions under Strategic Development Act as well

Gaming Mogul James Packer’s play at casino investment in Sri Lanka seems to have come up trumps, with the Cabinet yesterday giving the nod for the controversial US$ 350 million deal along with the JKH venture of US$ 650 million.

Cabinet Spokesman Minister Keheliya Rambukwella told media that the two projects, which have been given significant concessions by the Government, would now go ahead. However, he reiterated that the Government would not issue new gaming licenses.

“All this has been explained before. The Finance Ministry together with the Excise Department has issued these licenses and the gaming section of the integrated projects will be taxed,” he added.

Rank Holdings, which is the local partner of the US$ 350 million James Packer venture, has obtained a land under a new company titled Lake Leisure Holdings. The 2.5 acre land opposite Lake House down D.R. Wijewardene Mawatha will be given on a 50 year lease for Rs. 2.8 billion.

The Government approved tax concessions through a midnight gazette notification released on 18 July, which resulted in the ire of United National Party (UNP) MP and Economist Dr. Harsha de Silva.

Speaking to the media Dr. de Silva insisted that the US$ 350 million project was detrimental to the country as it did not bring in any income through taxes and should never have been given approval.

A copy of the Gazette notification showed that in addition to the 10 year income tax holiday, the casino will be charged only 6% tax for another 12 years. It also details exemptions from Customs Duty, Construction Industry Guarantee Fund Levy, Port and Airport Development Levy, V.A.T, PAYE tax for foreign employees (five years), Withholding Tax on foreign loan interest and Tax on Dividends for 11 years.

Comparing Sri Lanka’s concessions with the rest of the world, Dr. de Silva pointed out that Macau, which is the one of the largest gaming regions in the world charged 40% tax, while Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines also had high rates.

“Sri Lanka goes into the record books as the first country in the world that exempts casinos from tax,” he charged, adding that there were massive irregularities in the deal including the licensing of the casino.

The JKH venture was also approved by the Cabinet in a separate paper submitted by Investment Promotion Minister Lakshman Yapa Abeywardene.

“It will create direct employment opportunities for 3,000-4,000 persons during the construction period and in addition 3,000 direct and indirect employment on commencement of business operations. Cabinet agreed to grant concessions under the Strategic Development Project Act, No. 14 of 2008 (as amended) for the project,” the paper noted.
