PM may use Law and Order portfolio to shield Mahendran: GL

26 February 2018 03:45 pm - 12     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


While claiming that Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe had no moral right to be appointed as the Minister of law and Order, Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) Chairman G.L. Peiris claimed that the PM would make use the new portfolio to protect Central Bank’s former governor Arjuna Mahendran who is implicated in the bond scam.

He told a news briefing that the PM would do whatever was possible to prevent Mr. Mahendran from coming to Sri Lanka because the PM was aware that if Mr. Mahendran came to Sri Lanka and gave the evidence on the bond scam, the PM would be in big trouble.  (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    At last you are right. You know first hand how a Chief Justice was removed. You know how journalists where murdered. You know how the CID questioned your former queen. Of you and we know how Central Bsnk was robbed then and now. Thanks for your concern.

    He is right. The PM will do his best to safeguard his mate the chief 'Bondgate' robber. So the the JO need to be extremely alert and create adequate and right noises at the right times to prevent this manner of 'bending the rule of law' for one's own benefit. Still this massive 'Bond scam' crime must be brought to a successful conclusion by the High Court dealing punitive sentences on those found guilty. MM
