Fraudsters using President’s name, public warned

The Presidential Secretariat informs the public to bring to the notice of Major General (Rtd.) K.B. Egodawele, Director General (Administration) of the Secretariat via 0112354479/0112354354, any attempt by fraudsters to use the name of the President for their personal benefit.

Many such fraudsters had attempted on several occasions to use the President’s name, forged signature and forged letterheads to manipulate ministries, departments, state corporations, and statutory boards for personal gain.

These fraudsters reportedly visit personnel in charge of government offices and public institutes and attempt to influence officers claiming that they are acting under the President’s instructions.

The President categorically states that during his tenure he has prioritised establishing swift execution of government duties. President Rajapaksa expects the authorities to adhere to the rules and regulations in carrying out their duties and the government to meet the requirements of the public, the Presidents Media Division in a media communiqué said.
