The Attorney General has informed the Special Permanent High Court Trial-At-Bar that Central Bank's former governor Arjun 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 Arjun 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 Mr. 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. (T.Farook Thajudeen)

    Hijack Banker would be a more appropriate name. He went to Cambridge and what did he learn there??

    Unbelievable. Greed for money can sell your name that given to you by your loving parents.

    Nimal Tuesday, 16 June 2020 02:58 PM

    Ooh dearie, Now, who will sign another 21000 papers to deport Harjan Alex until he gets the karagata?

    Labby Tuesday, 16 June 2020 03:00 PM

    What's in a name? Just get the man.

    Shehan Tuesday, 16 June 2020 03:11 PM

    Why not Charlie Chaplin?.

    Arjudren Tuesday, 16 June 2020 03:12 PM

    Now if the Court issues a warrant to arrest and repatriate Harjan Alexander, the latter might change his name again- then what?

    Peter Thambi Tuesday, 16 June 2020 03:18 PM

    This hora Mahendran should be brought to justice. Is he going to hide away with the name change. This proves he is the biggest hora.

    Johnston Tuesday, 16 June 2020 03:20 PM

    Can anyone change the name and escape the law? If so Makandure Madush could have change his name and escape arrest by Interpol.

    Roshan samarathunga Tuesday, 16 June 2020 03:23 PM

    Well it’s too late. We found the culprit his.name is EAGLEMAITHRI. Inter pole just informed. But he changed his name again for election. Interpol found his name is LEAGLEMAITHRI

    Rajeeva Tuesday, 16 June 2020 04:06 PM

    Indepedent Tuesday, 16 June 2020 04:11 PM

    Biggest bond scammers Rajapakshas and Mr. Cabraal still free. Not even an investigation for them. Thanks to Ranil Rajapakshas got away from murders and theft.

    Boy Udyanga is-now enjoying the country owned by his cousins next cousin Jaliya will fallow suit. So Arjun will not be brought here ,with the wining of the election all will be forgotten in months.

    CITIZEN Tuesday, 16 June 2020 06:36 PM

    Is it because of the name change the INTERPOL cannot arrest Arjuna Mahendran? On the same principle if Ravi Karunaratne changes his name to Ralph Kevington will he be also spared???

    Mohanan Tuesday, 16 June 2020 06:37 PM

    This is why dual citizens should not be allowed to hold government posts.

    CITIZEN Tuesday, 16 June 2020 08:51 PM

    HIS ORIGINAL MAY HAVE BEEN ARJUN ALEXANDER MAHENDRAN.

    Ralahamy Tuesday, 16 June 2020 10:30 PM

    Mohanan! You are trying to hit below the belt.This is unfair. By the way, why didn't the courts proceed with the rest of group named in this case? You don't need the master brain to inquire about the other culprits!

    GHarry Wednesday, 17 June 2020 12:05 AM

    Why did not Ranil Wickremasinghe change his name? Why did not authorities arrest Ranil

    Mandayan Wednesday, 17 June 2020 01:14 AM

    Mahe Salli. Hello, that is not Sri Lanka. Singapore. A corruption free nation.

    Ramesh Kanth Wednesday, 17 June 2020 04:00 AM

    Sen Wednesday, 17 June 2020 06:09 AM
