Appoint commission to probe bond issues from 2008 to 2015: Marikkar

8 June 2018 05:37 am - 17     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


UNP MP S. M. Marikkar yesterday urged President Maithripala Sirisena to appoint another committee to probe illegal activities pertaining to bond issues from 2008 to 2015.

“We urge the President to appoint another commission to probe how loop holes in the law were used to play illegal games through bond issues,” MP Marikkar said in Parliament yesterday afternoon.

“There is a wrong perception that the bond scam in 2015 was the only robbery that had taken place in this country. Arjun Aloysius had sponsored night races during the last regime while former Central Bank Governor Niward Cabraal’s sister was a director of Perpetual Treasuries but no one talks about these facts,” the MP added.

He said names of those MPs who had accepted cheques from Aloysius should be revealed soon, so that the dignity of MPs who had not accepted money could be safeguarded. (Yohan Perera)

    All 225 MPs and the President, please tell us whether you or your campaign team received money from Aloysius or not. Cross checking with a list can be done later.

    Seriously...? You can’t even prosecute anyone from current bond scam and you wana open another can of worms. Get a grip my friend.

    Yeti Friday, 08 June 2018 06:56 AM

    You are quite right Hadam, we urge Marikkar to go step by step instead of complicating the issue unless you want it that way so that it will drag on and on forever!!!

    Mr Marikkar - lets first sort out the present Bond Scam and the then think of the past. Looks like you are trying to deflect the enquiry...

    Marrikar you are just a goat when it comes to Rajapakse so mind your own business as your name is also in 118

    No need, First punish the culprits who have already been exposed. Then we can dig deeper . So if you are a part of it be ready to pack your bags.

    Well you in the government, boy. President doesn't have to appoint commissions for every allegation. FCID can initiate legal actions on their own.

    Man Friday, 08 June 2018 09:40 AM

    What about the commission appointed, on the latest Bond scam, by your leader ? They can investigate from 2008 and their report will be useful for the FCID to streamline, as they got many matters to attend.

    How can the \President who did not publicly release the 2nd Presidential Commission report that was submitted to him together with the Bond Presidential Commission report to be expected to appoint another Bond Presidential Commission to cover the pre Yahapala period. President is not a honest and an independent person. He is hell bent on protecting SLFP which is actually controlled today by Mahinda.

    Marikar has the Pipe Bass taken funds from Aloysius to find your election campaign
