Flights departing from Sri Lanka with Uganda Currency Notes; Whats Going on?

Since the Mahinda Rajapaksa government came to power in Sri Lanka in February 2021, it has been reported that 102 tonnes of currencies were flown to Uganda by 3 cargo planes owned by Sri Lankan Airlines.

Colombo: Controversy has erupted in the country over two reports of large-scale currency notes brought from Sri Lanka into Uganda. People who have been fighting against the ruling government there have been sharing their doubts about it on social media pages.

Since the Mahinda Rajapaksa government came to power in Sri Lanka in February 2021, it has been reported that 102 tonnes of currencies were flown to Uganda by 3 cargo planes owned by Sri Lankan Airlines.

According to SriLankan Airlines, the cargo was transported from Colombo Katunayake International Airport to Entebbe International Airport in Uganda.

SriLankan Airlines has said that the services were used for full commercial purposes and that the containers containing notes of the country’s currencies printed for Uganda were shipped by passenger plane during the period when their aircraft were leased to a British cargo handler during the Coronavirus disaster.

The company explained on its Twitter page that the banknotes were printed and shipped from a global banknote printing company.

In this regard, the British currency printing company De la Rue (DE LA RUE), on its Twitter page De La Rue distributes their notes to more than half of the central banks in countries around the world. From our bases in Sri Lanka, Kenya, Malta and the UK, we do this through joint ventures in Sri Lanka and Kenya to contribute to the economies of the countries concerned. Has stated that we do not comment on customers.

However, some political parties were not satisfied with the interpretation of these two institutions.

Frontline Socialist Party (FSP) propaganda secretary Duminda Nagamuwa has questioned the need to come to Sri Lanka to print the money needed for Uganda. He notes that not only was this transaction with Uganda, but several other transactions also took place.

He said that in the midst of the current economic crisis in the country, there was a clear suspicion that some politicians in Sri Lanka were taking their assets abroad.

He also questioned who had previously printed the money for Uganda, as it is now alleged that the money was printed and taken to Uganda. He also said that printed notes had been sent to fill three planes.
