Bond issue: Legal action only after investigations conclude

6 April 2017 08:42 am - 10     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Any legal action, if any, with regard to the bond issue, will only be initiated after the presidential commission investigations and the CID inquiry are completed, Justice Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe told Parliament yesterday.

The minister said this in response to an oral question raised by joint opposition MP Mahindananda Aluthgamage.

He denied that the Attorney General had ordered a stop to the investigation carried out into the bond issue by the CID. The minister said the CID investigation, which began on January 10, 2017, is currently in progress. (Yohan Perera and Ajith Siriwardana)

    This clearly shows their effort to swipe this massive fraud of the century under the carpet.Only politician's in the JO put inside the prison while the investigations are going on. God bless our Judiciary system.

    Clearly the law is bancrupt due to political interference. Do u think in USA that the law would have waited for guidence from the politicians or politically appointed committees and waste public funds!. Look we pay AG's dept., Police, Judges etc., all out of taxes money but they are waiting for guidence from politicians to act. There is still no independence in this country

    Wait and see folks - there will be many more investigation which will follow - and finally all will forget about it. Why does not DM have a special column for the readers to daily comment and bring to light (again) on cases and investigations which have been swept under the carpet.
