President Maithripala Sirisena today said he would appoint a committee headed by a retired judge to investigate fraud related to the Golden Key case.

Speaking at a function to refund Golden Key depositors, Mr. Sirisena said the depositors had to suffer due to financial companies failing to follow stipulated government guidelines.

"The injustice done to Golden Key depositors was one of the worst disasters in the country’s financial sector, and the government at that time must take responsibility for it,” the president said.

He expressed sympathy to the depositors for their financial losses, and pledged that the government would do its utmost to support them.

He said this would be a case where the government practices good governance as per the pledge given at the last presidential election.

    There is a misconception carried out that the money for the payments are through the govt reserves. Please be acknowledged that the moneys are paid through liquidation of Gk assets. Thank you yahapalanaya- A humble depositor

    Good move. People responsible for the bankruptcy of Golden Key and death of over hundred people should be held liable for this tragedy.
