The Attorney General has informed the Special Permanent High Court Trial-At-Bar that Central Bank’s former governor Arjuna Mahendran, the first accused in the bond scam, has changed his name to Arjan Alexander.

 Deputy Solicitor General Priyantha Nawana appearing for the prosecution in the Central Bank bond scam case told the High Court that Interpol had informed the AG that Mr. Mahendran is going under the name Arjan Alexander.   He said he would inform court whether Arjuna Mahendran alias Arjan Alexander should be tried under an extradition order or on under some other law.  Among the 10 accused in the CB bond scam are Mahendran, CB’s former deputy director general  P. Somasiri, Kasun Palisena, Geoffry Joseph Aloysius, Pushya Mithra Gunawardena, Chitra Ranjan Hulugalle and Muturaja Surendran.   


The trial-at-bar comprises High Court Judges Sampath Abeykoon (President) Champa Janaki Rajaratna amd Sampath Wijekoon.   


The accused were indicted on charges of conspiring to commit criminal misappropriation in respect of Treasury Bonds worth more than Rs.10 billion.
