Mahendran, Cabraal should both be arrested, tried: UNP

Former Central Bank (CB) Governors Arjuna Mahendran and Ajith Nivard Cabraal should be arrested and tired in court as the forensic audit reveals that the bond scam had taken place from 2005 onwards and continued even after 2015, UNP MP Thushara Indunil Amarasena told a press conference held yesterday.

“One cannot deny the revelation made in the forensic audit. We are not willing to cover up the scam that took place during our time, which is why we call for the arrest of both individuals who governed the Central Bank during the period in which the scam took place. What had transpired prior to 2015 is similar to stealing coconut from an estate by loading them into a lorry in the estate premises and what happened after 2015 is that sacks full of coconut were thrown out of the estate,” he said, while calling for the extradition of Arjuna Mahendran from Singapore.

Meanwhile, former Western Provincial Councillor Niroshan Padukka who participated in the press conference said the EPF had been put on risk by investing its funds in companies that were not listed in the Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE). “This should also be investigated,” he said. (Yohan Perera)

    If you think Singapore would extradite Mahendran to Sri Lanka then you keep dreaming on.

    He should have arrested and get what he has stolen during the yahapalana government. But it did not happen. Now I do not think so.

    OK then get Mahendran here first, or Ranil gets arrested and prosecuted for aiding and abetting his friend to flee, as well as for hiring a rogue to execute his criminal plans to rob the central bank and peoples pension funds.
