The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) today challenged President Gotabaya Rajapaksa to reveal the 106 pages of the Presidential Commission of Inquiry (PCoI) on the bond scam, which were hidden by the previous regime, before reprimanding Central Bank officials for failing to carry out the government’s policy.

JVP Central Committee member Wasantha Samarasinghe told a news conference that the government which promised to bring to book the culprits in the Central Bank bond scam had failed to do so even after eight months of assuming office.

He said President Rajapaksa was duty bound to act on the report issued by the PCoI on the Central Bank bond scam and that he should reveal the 106 pages hidden by the previous regime.

"If he did so, it will reveal the names of all the politicians and government officials involved in the bond scam," Mr. Samarasinghe said.

Referring to the incident of the President blasting at Central Bank officials yesterday, he said the economy could not be developed just by reprimanding them and added that the government should guide the CB on the government's economic policies.

He said Finance Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa should also take the responsibility for any failure because the CB came under his purview.

"If the culprits in the bond scam were brought to book, the Central Bank officials will be encouraged and their efficiency will improve," Mr. Samarasinghe said. (Ajith Siriwardana)

    Do not waste your time. HE likes to hide important facts and start shouting when necessary!!!

    dickie bird Wednesday, 17 June 2020 07:52 PM

    Hilarious. Y did not these Jeppo tell Karu or Sira to submit the hidden pages??? In a desperate attempt to get that 3% increased. Looks like the good doctor of JVP has given up being unable to control the jackals. Will the JVP at least now say they were intruck with the FSP leader in the past

    Why didn't the corrupt JVP challenge then Maithri Ranil regime many hidden things?

    THE BOND SCAM REPORT WAS HANDED OVER TO FORMER PRESIDENT AIYO SIRISENA. HE IS NOT AWARE OF ANYTHING THAT HAPPENED UNDER HIS REGIME. GOTA WILL NOT ASK SIRA FOR THE MISSING HIDDEN PAGES, CAUSE SIRA IS BACKING SLPP AT THE GEN ELECTIONS.

    Look who is talking. The JVP was "eka ithe' pol " with the previous regime which makes this request now, is laughable

    Hareen Thursday, 18 June 2020 08:37 AM

    If revealed almost 80% of the MP's names will come to light. The hidden pages will have records from the earlier Government CBSL Governor Nivard Cabraal's time till this Bond Scam whereas everybody will have to prosecuted. until the voters are fools the politicians will have fun.

    Stupid JVP all this should hv been done during your fancy yahapalana time as you too were on the same boat at that time. The present president does not need to answer for all your bullshit.
