Evidence of bribery by Jeyakanth Selvarajah and his employees, known by his supervising organisations
* There have been persistent reports from persons involved in judicial proceedings initiated by or against Jeyakanth that the police and judicial officials have been bribed to delay or dismiss proceedings. Witnesses are available to interview, but have not been approached.
These include allegations of grave crimes, subsequently proven in court.
By its nature, it is often very difficult to substantate claims of bribing.
* Testimony of the High Court Judge against Jeyakanth, in his employees' child rape case. His descriptions of judicial tampering and police prevarication caused a police officer to faint in court. The verdict was later confirmed and sentence increased on appeal by the defendant(s).
* The written testimony of a police officer, based on his direct account from a colleague taking a 100,000 SLR bribe from Jeyakanth. The name is available for interview in a formal and forensic investigation.
* The direct testimony of former co-workers in various situations.
* The testimony of the Appeal Court
, which averred,
'The learned State
Counsel further submitted that, as the police
officers of Uppuveli police station have not been
cooperative and had tried to favour the appellant
and the other workers of the children’s home, the
PW4 has had to take the complaint up to the
Superintendent of Police to get the complaint
It is troubling that the first ground of the appeal was based on the very delay that the alleged bribery secured, in other words blaming the victim for their own crime!
* The testimony of Aloysius Periyakamam
who had direct involvement with LEF's financial affairs and liaised closely with Jeyakanth.
* Documentary and multiple eyewitness evidence of Jeyakanth's action in bribing a local official to pervert justice.
