Ameresekere enrolled as an Associate Member, American Bar Association

Leading public interest activist and litigant Nihal Sri Ameresekere, has been invited and enrolled as an Associate Member of the very prestigious American Bar Association. He is a Chartered Accountant, Chartered and Certified Management Accountant and a Certified Fraud Examiner. He is also a Member of the International Consortium of Governmental Financial Management and the International Association of Anti-Corruption Authorities.

Mr Ameresekere has published nine books which are available in the global market on his experiences in real case studies in combating fraud, corruption and economic crime. In his series of books he has demonstrated the unequal treatment before the law and the absence of the rule of law. Ameresekere’s books are hosted on several global Websites, particularly in the US, his office said in a statement.

“The American Bar Association has nearly 400,000 Members, and it is a singular honour for a Sri Lankan non-lawyer to have been admitted to its Membership. To Ameresekere’s credit he has espoused the cause of the public interest, successfully appearing and making submissions in person before the highest judiciary, the Supreme Court, in many a landmark Cases, such as the Tax Amnesty, Recovery of Loans by Banks, and Debt Recovery, Appropriation Bill, Sri Lanka Insurance Corporation and Lanka Marine Services privatizations,” the statement added.

He also challenged the Oil Hedging Deals, and was ruled to be out of time, but one of his books is on these Hedging and Derivative Deals, as being dubious and illegal. In the Citibank Arbitration Ameresekere’s stance was upheld with the transactions being held to be altogether bad. At present he is challenging the Expropriation Law which is pending before the Supreme Court.
