PHU complains to OMP over Mahendran’s disappearance


26 March 2018 06:17 pm - 18     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


While saying that the Central Bank’s former governor Arjuna Mahendran, the mastermind of the bond scam claimed to be the largest financial fraud in Sri Lanka, is still missing, Deputy Leader of Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU),Madumadawa Aravinda said today they would complain to the Office of Missing Persons (OMP) about Mr. Mahendran going missing.

He told a news conference that Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe was connected to Mahendran’s disappearance.

“It was Premier Wickremesinghe who said he would take responsibility for the appointment of Mr. Mahendran who is a citizen of Singapore. How can we further trust the PM when he says he would bring Mr. Mahendran back to Sri Lanka? Everybody wants Mr. Mahendran to arrive in Sri Lanka and prove his innocence or guilt on the controversial Central Bank bond issue. It is questionable as to why the government appointed OMP in haste during the recent unrests period. However, we presume the OMP would consider our case and act efficiently to bring Mr. Mahendran back to Sri Lanka,” he added. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    Mahendran is most probably hiding in neighboring Malaysia.

    Mahendran is a fully fledged Singaporean with all benefits that goes with it. He doesn’t need any country to hide. Keep dreaming !

    We can extradite him from Malaysia or Singapore under the London Scheme of extradition within the Commonwealth of Nations.

    I think if he missed like JHU thinking pattern very good for this case Because if they submit report to courts, he may be discharged.

    That is nice. Please add "Udayanga Weeratunga" and " Nishantha Wickremasinghe" to the list for a start. I am laughing. These are the fellows who want to govern this island paradise.

    The bird has already left Sri Lanka shores.

    Raveendran Tuesday, 27 March 2018 12:23 AM

    So chase after him to Singapore,and feel the power of the Jaffna Tamils of the 2nd and 3rd generations.

    Gayan Monday, 26 March 2018 08:32 PM

    Some use of OMP. Classic.

    mad dog Monday, 26 March 2018 10:37 PM

    I totally agree what you say. Ranil should step down without further delay. It was Ranil who appointed this crook as the Governor of Central Bank. UNP members should call for RANIL to resign. At the same time we also ask Mahinda Mamas crooks also to step down from politics. The law is equal and I wonder the outcome.

    What a joke? Politicians are destroying our country without any fear and shame. We are lucky still we are survive. People are acting as fools.People don't care even politicians rob their money and wealth. Judiciary system is paralyzed. See oother countries are moving forward. I don't know how educated professionals and genuine people tolerate such stupid things. Unbeatable.

    Jehan Tuesday, 27 March 2018 12:31 AM

    Ranil must go

    Ganesh Tuesday, 27 March 2018 07:29 AM

    Not only MAHENDRAN everyone who is accused to have committed swindling public fund should be brought to the country as Gotapaya had KP arrested from Malasiya to Srilanka .Why is the Prime minister dillydallying this is why he has been suspected by his own party men including every citizen .

    sundar Tuesday, 27 March 2018 09:43 AM

    yes Gota arrested KP and the courts released him saying no evidence. So Gota was wrong in arresting KP

    Sri Lankan Tuesday, 27 March 2018 07:42 AM

    the person who appointed a foreigner as our Central bank Governor should be held responsible.this means we do not have qualified persons to hold the possession of central bank governor,or had appointed some one to rob our bank,
