Senior Deputy Solicitor General Haripriya Jayasundara today told Court that there is no legal barrier for former Central Bank Governor Arjuna Mahendran to acquire the documents he sought earlier from the Singapore Interpol relating to the magisterial inquiry conducted into the controversial bond scam.

It was said that first suspect of the inquiry, Mahendran had recently requested copies of some documents relating to the allegations levelled against him and Copies of the warrant issued against him from the CID through Interpol.

SDSG Jayasundara confirmed that the CID has already sent an e-mail to the Singapore Interpol Unit on the instructions of the Attorney General regarding the demand of the suspect allowing him to get the requested documents from the Interpole.

SDSG Jayasundara also said that the prosecution is currently working on getting down first suspect Mahendran under the extradition law of the country. (Shehan Chamika Silva)

    Yes. He can visit Sri Lanka and collect them or does he require Rani, Kabee or Malick to dispatch them? .

    Surely he could be told that the documents would be given to him only when he returns to the country.

    Even an accused of murder has the legal right to prepare for his defence.

    There should be no legal impediment for grabbing him, putting him in a box and dispatching him to good old SL.....

    Sad to see people making stupid comments showing their ignorance of the law of their own country and also showing how ignorant they are of how a person could be eradicated from another country.

    Sadly it also reflects the level of education and knowledge of the so called educated in our country.

    He is on open warrant,if he should adhere the that order prior to ask for required documents,that should be the correct way i think
