CB will oversee Samurdhi Bank: PM

6 May 2018 06:54 pm - 14     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe today said the Samurdhi Bank would be soon brought under the control of the Central Bank.

“All banks except the Samurdhi Bank are monitored by the Central Bank," he said at the UNP May Day rally held today at the Sugathadasa Stadium.

“Even the EPF is monitored and controlled by the Ministry of Finance.

However, the Samurdhi Bank is not being monitored or administered by any institution and therefore, we will bring it under the control of Central Bank,” he said. (Yohan Perera)

    Long due decision. There is no transparency what so ever about Samurdhi Bank and peoples savings and shares were misused by politicians like S.B.Dissanayake

    What right he got to do with CB when MY3 has taken away from him.

    Another bond scam by PM's vision to rob poor people's money. Shame on him. Bring back Mahendran and recover the looted money.

    Then who is going to oversee the activities of the CB gorvoner, finance minister and Hon. PM.

    Freddy Yong Monday, 07 May 2018 11:35 AM

    The incumbent CB Governor has more financial savvy than Mangala or Ranil and can not be pushed. Please take note of that.

    This should have been so from the inception. Every bank should come under the supervision of Central Bank.

    There goes the Samurdi bank!!
