Central Bank Governor Arjuna Mahendran left the island even without passing over his liabilities to another official or informing relevant authorities, Bandula Gunawardena charged today.
“Reliable sources at financial institutions informed me on the sudden flight of the Central Bank governor on Saturday (27), the very next day of dissolving Parliament. Sources told me that Mr. Mahendran had not informed about his tour abroad to the Monetary Board untill Tuesday (30),” the former MP said.
He said it was not the standard procedure for a governor to leave the country without informing authorities including the Monetary Board and naming an official to make decisions on his behalf. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

I read a news item somewhere before that some one else at Central Bank will act during the absence of Mahendran as he leaves abroad.

Bandula you being a tuition master who looted the poor students money and later joining with Mahinda you earned in Millions and owning mansions and you have lot of businesses on your relations names. How is that? I know all your hidden businesses too. Be careful.

Mr. Bandula tell me frankly even now MR is bribing you and few of your gangsters nearly 4.5 millions per head every month. Where did he get this money Sir?

I thought his passport was impounded. May be he got a DPL passport like Shashi Weerawansa or a forged one.

That is wrong, the Governor of the Central Bank should have informed the Tuition Master before he left the country. Bandula, I am off to the toilet.
