An invaluable Book dealing with United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC), in force from December 2005, including its evolution, and related UN Convention Against Transnational Organize Crime. UNCAC - is an international legal instrument dealing with combating fraud, corruption and economic crime in public and private sectors, including political leaders and lackeys. Author discloses the formation of International Association of Anti-Corruption Authorities (IAACA), in Beijing in October 2006, with Inaugural Address by Chinese President, Hu Jintao. IAACA promotes and facilitates implementation globally of UNCAC, supported by United Nations Office on Drugs & Crime (UNODC). He reveals his endeavours to combat fraud, corruption and economic crime, prior to UNCAC. He demonstrates that whilst fraud and corruption, as endorsed by international research, is a major issue confronting people, how political leaders stride to power exploiting their anguish by committing to combat fraud and corruption, but once in power get bogged down in the quagmire of fraud and corruption, peddled by their lackeys, financing them. Disclosing real instances, he demonstrates how countries, having ratified UNCAC, are not honouring its obligations, but blatantly violating with impunity its obligations; he highlights dire need for international endeavour to deal with political leaders, pillaging and plundering the resources of people plunging them into abject poverty, as crimes against humanity. SAARC leaders acknowledge people in Asia are enslaved in abject poverty, and propound prosperity is not monopoly of a few, but are not committed to combat fraud and corruption. He reveals how World Bank and international agencies pontificate on combating fraud and corruption, but continue to fraternize with fraudulent and corrupt miscreants, demonstrating that mere rhetoric, only subverts UNCAC - an indispensable handbook for those combating fraud, corruption and economic crime.

Fraud and Corruption in Government will explore and explain the process of fraud and corruption in governmental and public agencies. The book will provide a set of theoretical underpinnings as to why fraud and corruption exists in the public sector. In particular it will contrast the motivation for fraud in public agencies and compare it to common fraud patterns in the private sector. Agencies sometime have intense corporate culture – where standards and practice develop over long periods with limited exposure to other ethical frameworks or practice standards. This can lead to an entity specific mind set where managers develop moral standards and hence practices that are significantly deviated from normal behavior. This book will provide these managers with a compendium of practice to show actual norms and also a review of cases where agency practice was held as opposed to best financial practices. It will allow them to study good practice from a standard text that will avoid some of the political maneuvering that is all too common in agency politics.

‘Colombo Hilton Hotel Construction’ – ‘Fraud on Sri Lanka Government’ – ‘Sri Lanka’s First Derivative Action in Law’, startlingly unravels the major fraud on the Government of Sri Lanka by reputed multi-nationals, colluding with socio-politically influential, endeavouring to fraudulently ‘siphon out a large scale of foreign exchange on government guarantees’, , which was successfully prevented through injunctions affirmed by the Supreme Court of Sri Lanka. ‘On sovereign guarantees of the Government of Sri Lanka, the Colombo Hilton Hotel was to be constructed, equipped and furnished, on a ‘turnkey fixed price basis’ by a Japanese consortium comprising Mitsui & Co. Ltd., and Taisei Corporation, supervised and designed by Kanko Kikaku Sekkeisha Yozo Shibata & Associates, with technical assistance in planning and construction from Hilton International, United States of America, who were to operate and manage the Hotel. During construction a staged fire allegedly destroyed all plans and documents, and surreptitiously the original plans substituted, and the hotel constructed with two floors short and without the basements contrary to the original plans, based upon which Sri Lanka Government guarantees had been obtained. ‘The book essentially reveals the process of litigation by one minority shareholder, single-handedly combating socio-politically powerful influential fraudulent miscreants; lucidly narratively setting out pleadings, counter-affidavits, further pleadings, interrogatories, pre-trial processes, objections, written submissions, District and Appeal Court orders, and the landmark historic judgment by the Supreme Court of Sri Lanka, demonstrating its independence in pronouncing – ‘in the given circumstances the Government could not be indifferent’, – resulting in the Japanese multi-nationals writing-off a colossal sum of US $ 207 million in 1995. ‘This is an invaluable and indispensable research book for both academics and professionals of law, particularly on the rights of minority shareholders in corporates, and for those interested in the combat of fraud and corruption at the highest levels in a country.
