1. SRI LANKAN WHISTLEBLOWER NIHAL SRI AMERESEKERE DISCUSSES INTERNATIONAL CORRUPTION AND FRAUD

by Dylan Blaylock on August 08, 2011

Sri Lankan whistleblower, chartered accountant and public interest activist Nihal Sri Ameresekere sat down with GAP Executive Director Bea Edwards in Washington, DC to discuss international corruption and fraud. Ameresekere is the author of a series of Books on these subjects, and is known for exposing corruption, fraud and nepotism within the Sri Lankan government. He also serves as a key player in the implementation of the UN Convention Against Corruption.

In his talk, Ameresekere is adamant that Auditors must be held to higher levels of accountability. They should be the watchdogs, not the lapdogs, of organizational resource managers. International development organizations – especially multilateral development institutions such as the International Monetary Fund, World Bank, Asian Development Bank – promote openness and transparency in their rhetoric, but are often complicit in these economic crimes.
