    [Casinos in Sri Lanka could be controlled by organized crime, warns IMF]

    Who controls the Casinos in Las Vegas? Who controls Casinos in other parts of the world, if not the Mafia?

    Don`t these IMF experts know that wherever Casinos go so does Organised Crime? Strange that the IMF doesn`t even know that Casinos and Organised Crime are kissing cousins.

    Quite apart from Casinos, the ENTIRE country is being controlled by Organised Crime! Thugs in Parliament, in the Police and also in the Forces!

    Not only Casinos but isnt the current BOI chairman a product of Casinos? Im open to correction but from what i know he is or was big into the Casino business.

    Another one of the biggest financiers of the MR and JVP is the notorious owners of Continental restaurants and Casinos. This guy is one huge Arms dealer and he poured millions into MRs last presidential election bid. He is also wanted in Killing of several police officers, who were on Duty at the Indian embassy and accidently shot his brother - Lucky Fonseka during a brawl. He goes around with group of body guards who are mostly army deserters. I have personally vitnessed his antics and thugarry when i used to party at his club at the Galadari (i forget the name - i hear he closed it down)...

    Add to this - Chandi Malli of the Wambota gang and Dr Mervin Silva - this whole govt is controlled by organized crime!! :) :)
