Power and Renewable Energy Deputy Minister Ajith P. Perera said yesterday even though the bond issue was a minor issue for the United National Party, the Bond Commission report had clearly stated that no one from the UNP, including its leader, had done anything wrong.
“The Bond Commission report clearly proves the innocence of UNP members and its leader. Even parents would not give us a character certificate such as this,” he said.
He said the case against Perpetual Treasuries Ltd (PTL) owner Arjun Aloysius would be taken up as the first case before a 3-judge-bench as a trial-at-bar to be established next March.
“Aloysius has damaged our reputation and has done a great injustice to the country. He cannot go anywhere in the world to hide from his sins. If he is hiding anywhere in the world, we can bring him back as we can request for INTERPOL help. Justice will prevail,” he said.
Mr. Perera said the money acquired by Aloysius could be recovered as his assets were frozen.“It is possible to recover the money looted by him. Unlike what happened during the previous regime, Aloysius's money is in our country not in other countries,” he said. (Ajith Siriwardana)
Absolve the UNP and its leader? What about your deputy leader? You will learn what absolving means when the results are announced.

Absolving means that the bond commission found that neither UNP or PM were involved. They have said IF RK guilty of corruption bribery commission should take action. But PM himself not involved

All of them were hell bent in covering up the Bond scandal even going to the extent of threatening the Cope committee chairman .

Who appointed Aloysius' father-in-law as the Governor of the CB?

Surely, not the public!

Alloysius has done his business as a CEO of a company .He has not done any crime. He did not steal any body,s money. He was successful in finding the best way to bid and get the maximum profit by reselling their bonds to other parties.It is not a crime at all. But who supported this person to earn such a profit and how they helped him will be the question. The way he was helped by the govt officials and the UNP MP's could be a crime.

So all these officials came running after Alloysius to give him insider information and didn't want a penny from him for it. "Okkoma Tottha Babala"

Mahendran belongs to a very well respected and better off family,he is neither thief nor politician, these politicians brought him down to use him as a cat's paw and put him trouble,

Mahendran is a fool if allowed himself to be a cats paw. That was dishonest and unethical.
