Termination relationship Rev Jeyanesan and the CACM church

From 2000 till 2010 Ceylon Christian Care have worked closely together with Rev Jeyanesan of the CACM church on Sri Lanka. During these years many projects were initialized and realized.

 

However in 2009 we were confronted with the news that Rev Jeyanesan was arrested and put into detention. We were informed that this was based on sexual harassment. In the months after we learned that 4 ladies filed a case against Rev Jeyanesan. Several ladies shared there own experience with us and told what happenend to others. Also a board member of the CACM church confirmed to us that the allegations were true. 

 

What we also came to know was that Rev Jeyanesan was living in great wealth with properties in Colombo (Sri Lanka), Toronto (Canada) and London (UK). Rev Jeyanesan who comes from a laborers family and who has served his whole working live as a pastor was not willing to give insight were the money came from. Personally we suspect that money donated after the Tsunami in 2004 for relief support and other donations have end up in his personal account.

 

Discussions with the board of the CACM church learned that they were not willing to terminate their relationship with Rev Jeyanesan. In Feb 2010 Rev Jeyanesan was elected again on crusial positions in several boards of the church. People infomed us also that Rev Jeyanesan donated large amounts of money to the CACM church which were illegal taken from relief donations and which were kept by the church outside the bookkeeping. After several discussions without result we were finally left with no other option than to terminate the relationship with the CACM church.

 

After this termination Rev Jeyanesan took away all the money from the accounts of Ceylon Christian Care and other donors. He also took the administration with him. Even after several requests we have still not received back the administration. 

 

Beside Ceylon Christian Care also Word & Deed (The Netherlands) and Kinder Nothilfe (Germany) terminated their relationship with Rev Jeyanesan and the CACM church.
