Perpetual Treasuries Ltd’s (PTL) Owner Arjun Aloysius and CEO Kasun Palisena, who were arrested by the CID over the Central Bank bond scam, have been ordered to be released on exceptional bail by Colombo Chief Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne after being in remand custody for more than ten months.
They were released under one million cash bail, four sureties of two million for each suspect with a travel ban.
They had been ordered to report to the CID every Sunday. (Shehan Chamika Silva)

Ranil couldnt find a qualified personnel to sign newly minted notes of Sri Lanka than these duo...And he would trust them, just like he did before..

We have a wonderful judiciary in sri lanka.
Rupert Tuesday, 01 January 2019 03:19 PM
Its good that bail was granted for both.Being in remand for almost a year makes no sense without filing charges.This case will end up dead.

you seem to guess right. "umbalata kiri apita kakiri"

New version of yahapalanaya in action with new year eve...! Tribute to all thieves who robbed working peoples reserves in EPF
bo Tuesday, 01 January 2019 03:24 PM
What is the point in bailing them. Our traitorous PM will now spring them out of the country to satisfy his friend Mahendran instead of bringing everyone to the court to answer the charges. RW came back just to fulfil this need to cover up his complicity in the great Bond Scam.
Nada Tuesday, 01 January 2019 03:33 PM
Sure 2019 will be a good year
Mandy Tuesday, 01 January 2019 05:08 PM
Hope good for us citizens - not a good year for the rogues in Parliament and looters of our taxes. Expedite all pending court cases.

Nobody has yet been convicted for multi-billion frauds after spending so much of public funds on investigations and prosecutions!! This is all eye wash by the Yahapalana govt.
Arjun Tuesday, 01 January 2019 04:21 PM

Low and order is for general public only . There's no low applicable for Politian's and there henchman's. We found gems given by some body to MS> desi , Luxury houses without owners , TV channels without owners and now big gable without a responsible person . End of bond scam .
Citizen Silva Tuesday, 01 January 2019 07:34 PM
Why do some straightaway blame Ranil Wickramasinghe.... please come out of this illusion. At present it Maithripala is the President and head of government....poor Ranil he was so professional during this 51 day unconstitutional drama... From the beginning Ranil knew and had gone through his paperwork properly... which nobody did... Thanks good we have the best possible politician as our Prime Minister...

A word of warning to Aloysius. !!!!!!!You are a Catholic by religion and you have dishonored God by your corrupt ways. Not only that but you have had the audacity to name your corrupt company as "Perpetual Treasuries" because infidels like are so called " Cafeteria Catholics ".Enjoy your life to the maximum with your ill gotten wealth for one day all fun will come to a end. Your soul will stand in front of God for final Judgement and God have mercy on you beyond that," If Thou ! thy grace should take away, nothing pure in man will stay ! all his good will turn to ill. "
Aloysius Wednesday, 02 January 2019 09:36 AM
May god have mercy on such a jealous and petty soul. Live and let live Empeeess
