A short archive of documents pertaining to recent corruption of the reformed churches in Sri Lanka mission

A brief note to a friend, summarising concerns.

Language you expect from a Christian worker? Just two early examples:
2006 Jeyakanth directly threatened brother Muralee by phone and said, 'you know what they [his family & associates] will do to you'.
On other occasions direct violence was used.
2007-8 In Batticaloa, Paulose, Jeyakanth's driver and assistant said to brother Muralee, 'I will cut your throat and put your head into a bag'.
Many other senior Christians have also testified in writing of threats of violence from Jeyakanth and his colleagues.

7/7/11 An introductory page, published after a lack of response and apparent inaction, though the affair was brought to my attention by brethren who had been raising these concerns with the supporting churches for at least 2 years before.

24/11/11 A troubling report in response to specific concerns raised about child abuse.

2/2/12 A response to the report, which was unanswered.

17/10/2019 The court case that succeeded, 8 years later in convicting two paedophiles.

Winter 2019 The official response of Care Sri Lanka and on 9/1/20, the council later supported the appeal publicly. (now withdrawn, but not yet disowned or disavowed)

7/1/20 A response raising challenges to serious discrepancies in this account.

31/2/21 The seven pastors who defected from Lanka Evangelical Fellowship and their concerns.

May 2021 Council Of Reference upbraids APC for excommunication.
For reference, 1689 confession, ch.26, para 15.

25/3/22 Brother Bill Goodman, as a former senior fraud investigator expresses concerns about irregularities in the financial arrangements of LEFC.

2/8/22 The appeal court findings. An appeal pressed by LEF and funded by them probably.
Their argument against delay, employed by Islamist lawyers, was quite despicable, given the allegation of bribery of police and other officials, voiced by the High Court Judge against their own representatives. An apology & proper restitution for these crimes is long overdue.

2/8/22 Lanka Evangelical Fellowship's immediate publication, with brother Bill Goodman's response interspersed.

23/8/22 Our questions, which still remain unanswered. Where is the holy spirit of Phinehas? Num.25.1-13, Ps.106.30-1.

21/11/22 Aloysius Periyakamam's expression of repentance for involvement in LEF's affairs.

17/3/23 Another appeal to CSL and LEF after more gangsterish behaviour in Sri Lanka is reported.

27/3/23 More ministerial corroboration of Jeyakanth's behaviour - a public application. 77% of the congregation of his 'commissioning church' now worship here.

9/5/23 CSL now confirm they support the appeal to the Supreme Court, in the case of a child rape by an employee. They contest unequivocal findings by the two lower courts (the Appeal Court strengthened the sentence).
We again appeal to LEF/CSL to make sure their child safeguarding policies (whatever they actually are) are well known to their workers in Sri Lanka, in Tamil, (we have been assured today they are 5/6/23) and that they are enforced.

How should interchurch financing work? What's the Biblical mandate?

5/6/23 Evidence Jeyakanth clearly did support appeals against the Thambalagamam splinter church building, despite reported denials. Translation.

Evidence already submitted to supervising organisations of bribery by Jeyakanth and his direct associates.
