Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said yesterday the COPE report which held former CB governor Arjuna Mahendran responsible for the bond scam be forwarded to the Attorney General for him to act upon.
“Let’s send the report to AG so that he can take appropriate action," he said. “The COPE report had referred to a scam at the Central Bank which is under my preview but I don't mind. This is actually a victory for the yahapalana government which is committed towards strengthening Parliament."
The Prime Minister highlighted the fact that COPE had been a success. (Yohan Perera and Kelum Bandara)
