About the Book

`Socio-political realities' at the highest levels in society are lucidly revealed by the Author documenting real life experiences, in interacting with Presidents, Prime Ministers and Ministers, demonstrating their subservience to international pressures by influential powerful countries, and their shameless shielding of fraudulent/corrupt Ministers/Officers. Author discloses non-enforcement of the rule of law, even by Attorney Generals, against those affluent and powerful, eventhough the rule of law is the cornerstone of democracy. There is shocking revelation, of how Japanese Government, through Diplomats, pressurized to settle and cover-up a colossal fraud, blatantly perpetrated on a country and impoverished people, to prevent criminal prosecution thereof; even inducingly offering to negotiate with a terrorist organization, to resolve the issue of armed terrorism, ironically created by social injustice, including economic terrorism. Constitutional Minister, President's Counsel, charged for fraud utters blatant falsehoods. Justice Minister and Foreign Minister, President's Counsel, both scholarly alumni of Oxford University, camouflages to whitewash fraud, taking duplicitous stances. This Book is in two Sections, one dealing with `Political and Diplomatic Hypocrisy', and the other on an `Ad Hominem Legislation - Expropriation Law', enacted in violation of UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and ultra-vires the Constitution. How the country's highest judiciary deals with challenges to the perverse legislative process is revealing, with shocking disclosure of the Chief Justice's husband being given plum political office, with a scandalous controversy exploding in the public domain; just as the Author applies for a review of the pre-enactment Determination by Chief Justice for such Statute, as having been made per-incuriam and ultra-vires the Constitution, adducing additional grounds of perceived bias, upon which Their Lords of Appeal exercising inherent jurisdiction, in similar circumstances, rescinded a previous Judgment of the House of Lords in extradition proceedings re - Chilean President Pinochet.

About the Author

Nihal Sri Ameresekere, F.C.A. (Sri Lanka), F.C.M.A. (United Kingdom), C.M.A. (Australia), C.F.E. (United States), is a Member, International Consortium on Governmental Financial Management and a Member, International Association of Anti-Corruption Authorities. Former Advisor, Ministry of Finance and Chairman, Public Enterprise Reforms Commission Sri Lanka. Has functioned as Senior Consultant on World Bank and USAID funded public sector economic reform projects. A multi-disciplinary professional, exposed to private and public sectors, and a public interest activist, with wide international exposure. Not a legal professional, yet has appeared in person before the Supreme Court, successfully advocating public interest litigations. He is a forensic accounting investigative specialist. Has dispassionately spoken out on matters of national and public interest. Ardently upholds the sacred precept, that public property is solely of the people, and managed in fiduciary trust by governments; transgression of which he has committedly combated.

Has published exposés into transactions carried out, under the aegis of IMF, World Bank and ADB privatization agenda, incisively analyzing real case studies, exposing the shockingly dubious manner, in which privatizations have been perpetrated by the highest levels, disclosing the alarming indifference of international developmental agencies, completely eroding public confidence, crucial for meaningful privatization, to foster a free economy, characteristic with transparency.

He emphasizes that `economic terrorism' germinates `armed terrorism', resulting in violation of human rights. `Concerns of humanity, transcends interests of nationality', he propounds; and that poverty alleviation schemes merely replace, at the cost of the poor, their own resources pillaged and plundered by socio-politically influential. Politicians vigorously campaign on election platforms, vociferously decrying fraud and corruption, vowing stringent action thereon. However, upon assuming office of government, get bogged down in the very quagmire of fraud and corruption, invariably peddled by powerful multinationals - as lucidly demonstrated through a series of other publications on his real life experiences thereon.
