Central Bank Governor Dr. Indrajith Coomaraswamy today arrived at the Presidential Commission of Inquiry (CoI) to record his evidence on the controversial Central Bank bond issue.

The CoI is comprised with Supreme Court Judges K. T. Chithrasiri and P.S. Jayawardena, and retired deputy auditor general K. Velupillai.

The commission was appointed by President Maithripala Sirisena in January with a mandate to inquire into the bond issue and submit a report with a March 31 deadline.
