Ananda hit by further scandal

The Bribery Commission on Friday raided the office of Ananda College, Colombo to probe complaints that school admissions approved by former Principal B. A. Abeyratne were continuing to take place after he was transferred to the Education Ministry following his indictment over a school admission case.
The Bribery Commission’s Investigations Director, Neville Guruge, said a probe was being conducted but declined to give details.

Officials who visited Ananda College had taken into custody files pertaining to admissions which have taken place with the approval of the former principal.

The Sunday Times learns that one of the allegations under inquiry is that approval for student admissions for various grades had been backdated after Mr. Abeyratne was transferred.

The statements from Vice Principal Lal Dissanayaka and deputy principal Dharmasiri Lokuliyana have also been recorded. Mr. Abeyratane was transferred to the Education Ministry on July 3 after he was indicted in the High Court for allegedly producing three documents which he claimed had contained his handwriting.

The CID had wanted the documents to check his handwriting with another document where he is reported to have approved a year one admission.
