Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said yesterday the COPE report which held former CB governor Arjuna Mahendran responsible for the bond scam be forwarded to the Attorney General for him to act upon.

“Let’s send the report to AG so that he can take appropriate action," he said. “The COPE report had referred to a scam at the Central Bank which is under my preview but I don't mind. This is actually a victory for the yahapalana government which is committed towards strengthening Parliament."

The Prime Minister highlighted the fact that COPE had been a success. (Yohan Perera and Kelum Bandara)

    Every time PM opens his mouth he sounds as if he is trying to cover up the bond scam!

    It would be better if an independent team consisting members of international audit team review the report and carry out an independent investigation as this is a highway robbery!

    What PM say is AG will charge Arjuna Mahendran. he left the country yesterday. He can be charged in absentia as is not in the country

    How sincere the PM is the question.He quoted three UNP lawyer report and a court decision whenever Bond issue came in Parliament and defended the Governor without resorting to a PSC. President however did not give the Governor an extension very correctly.

    Unlike MR the PM didn't interfere with COPE and stopped other UNPers from doing so as well

    Without waiting for legal clearance where legal interpretations and technical issues may rise, Mahendran should be removed from any advisory positions in the government by PM as public has lost faith on him.
