PM must help bring back Mahendran: JVP

6 June 2018 10:05 pm - 24     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake said today Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and former president Mahinda Rajapaksa should take the responsibility to bring back to the country Central Bank's former governor Arjun Mahendran, former Sri Lanka ambassador to Russia, Udayanga Weeratunge and former Sri Lankan ambassador to US Jaliya Wickramasuriya, who were absconding after defrauding public funds.

He told parliament that Mr. Wickramasuriya and Mr. Weeratunge were relatives of the ex-president and Mr. Mahendran a confidant of the Premier.

"Mr. Mahendran was appointed as CB governor on the recommendation of the Prime Minister. He is the Premier's close confidant. So he has a personal responsibility to make an effort to bring down Mr. Mahendran without seeking international assistance," Mr. Dissanayake said.

He said Mr. Mahendran was the government authority assisting Arjun Aloysius to engage in the bond scam.

"Aloysius did not loot the CB alone. It was Mr. Mahendran who assisted him to do so," Mr. Dissanayake said.

He asked the Prime Minister whether any action had been taken to prevent Mr. Mahendran's property being sold or suspended as in the case of Jaliya Wickramasuriya and Udayanga Weeratunge. (Ajith Siriwardana and Yohan Perera)

    Anura don't worry. As per Akila UNP never defend the thieves so you can expect his leader to do the needful.

    Jude Perera Thursday, 07 June 2018 09:06 AM

    Or don't know RW sent him to Singapore for treatment as Mahendran lost his memory

    DG Thursday, 07 June 2018 07:39 AM

    Fault lies in RW getting a person who in not a Srilankan or even a citizen to this post.

    Ceylon Thursday, 07 June 2018 07:42 AM

    Allways one tamil name mahendran is mentioning for around 20 billion case.why not much mention about the other tamil name mahendra implicate with hundreds of billions ???.

    Sodha Thursday, 07 June 2018 09:35 AM

    Why the hell are you stressing on TAMIL ????

    Ganesh Thursday, 07 June 2018 06:06 PM

    Who are you referring to Perzey Mahendra or some body else

    Dhammika Thursday, 07 June 2018 08:32 AM

    CORRECT but very unlikely nothing will happen ! .

    Kingsley Milroy Thursday, 07 June 2018 09:45 AM

    As long as My3 and RW rules SL, nothing will happen in general. MR has to re-gain his Giant Powers once again to bring SriLanka in to prosperity.

    M. Jayantha Jayaweera Thursday, 07 June 2018 09:02 AM

    Anura, whatever said and done - Ranil is protecting the looters for his own benefits. Better get in to the street with your boys and we the UNP young bullets and SLFP young bullets will support you.

    Dennis Reeves Thursday, 07 June 2018 09:38 AM

    Yes, at this stage if you want to chase RW that is the right way.

    Sunil Thursday, 07 June 2018 09:03 AM

    Do you really believe that the PM, as the mastermind of the entire scam, has any intention of bringing him to Sri Lanka?

    Lal Piyal Mendis Thursday, 07 June 2018 09:04 AM

    Dissa do you trust Ranil? He will never get down Arjun from Singapore, but on a sly he will help this culprit to plant him in another country, this is the plan. (I got it from a reliable source)

    G. Hettiarachchi Thursday, 07 June 2018 09:40 AM

    Good point for Dissa, now he will slash it in the Parliament.

    U.M. Patmasiri (Ex- ASP) Thursday, 07 June 2018 09:08 AM

    Anura get the permission from President, get some Senior Police Officers go with them to S'pore and arrest the Ali Baba.

    D. Rasaputhiram Thursday, 07 June 2018 09:42 AM

    Sir, its a good idea but will Anura do it? He only talks no action on any matters.

    Kadupol Jothywansa Thursday, 07 June 2018 09:43 AM

    Neither the Prez or PM will make any arrangements to arrest Mahendran, take it from me.

    City Thursday, 07 June 2018 10:22 AM

    Please note that the Singaporean protocol procedures are entirely different.the request has to be done in the proper manner.not like our procedures.

    sena Thursday, 07 June 2018 09:24 AM

    there may be a deal between big two parties to sort out weeratunga and mahandran cases amicably,

    Ronnie Bugger Thursday, 07 June 2018 10:01 AM

    Anura, this thing crops up periodically and when it does our Mr. Clean PM comes up with a standard excuse in Parliament. Don't expect anything constructive to happen. It will go on till the next presidential election and Presto! these rogues will be free to roam within 2 days after that . Use the JVP power if you want a result or else even you people will be all wind and piss.

    Mayadunna Thursday, 07 June 2018 01:23 PM

    Ha ha.. part of another drama.. Anura saya "Sir you carry on doing what you want...we will play the drama of criticizing."As much as we want to believe "KOOMBIYO" to be just a tele drama, that is the reality, that's what's happing behind screens.. whether you like it or not...

    lanka Thursday, 07 June 2018 07:55 PM

    JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake and his 5 mates talk big but when it comes to action bottom of the pile. NIKOMO.
