Upon hearing this Non-Corporate Ja-Ela Thug 'John Bass' culture behaviour of Harry J's eldest daughter at country's second largest private bank - HNB and its CEO Jonathan Alles, Sri Lanka's Banking Regulator that has over 65 years old Central Banker - World's Oldest Central Banker (World's Largest Stock Market Manipulator, US Jailed Raj Rajaratnam's former Galleon Research Head) -Indrajit Coomaraswamy managed Central bank of Sri Lanka had warned all Bankers in the country and the entire banking Sector Director boards to control the behaviour of Directors of all banks and finacial institutions.
Sources close to Harry J also notes that switching of Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake has shattered the Dream of Harry Jayawardena's motive of reversing Sri Lanka's Banking Act to take the control of key Sri Lankan Commercial Banks such as DFCC and Commercial Bank of Ceylon under his family control and ownership since Ravi's suggestion to reverse the private ownership of Licensed Commercial Banks to over 20%; is now seems not a plan under this government.
One time during 1994-2005 Chandrika Bandaranaike Regime of Sri Lanka Harry Jayawardena started controlling country's entire private sector commercial banks and Sri Lanka's largest insurance company - SLIC - since he was favoured by then Lady President Chandrika as Harry J largely financed her Presidential Political Campaign with over Rs. 50 million in 1994 Presidential Elections.
Sources also note that Harry J has political stooges appointed to his companies especially from Sri Lanka's Tourism Minister's family including another Son-In-Law of 'Ja-Ela Thug John Bass' to Harry J's Heritance Hotel group where the other Son-In-Law holds key managerial position.
