Prez Sec attempts to cover up 118: Keerthi

The move of President Secretary Austin Fernando to seek the Attorney General's opinion on releasing the full report of the Central Bank Bond Commission was to defend the 118, who had obtained funds from the Perpetual Treasuries Limited, Centre for Human Rights and Research (CHR) alleged today.

“The President’s Secretary had misled us for more than four months when some groups including the CHR were requesting him to release the full report of the bond scam,” CHR Executive Director Keerthi Tennakoon said.

“On one occasion, President Maithripala Sirisena has pronounced that people can have the access to a part of the bond report under the Right to Information Act (RTI). President’s Secretary said on Thursday (31) said that people could get access to the bond report from the Department of National Archives.

“However, when we approached the Archives Department, it stated that it would take 30 years for the Archives Department to release the full Presidential Report,” Tennakoon said.

“This whole story is to put the records of bond scam under the carpet and prevent the names of 118 from being disclosed to the public domain. The hierarchy knows that if the entire report is out, the general public would get the real picture of everything and what has really transpired following the bond scam,” Tennakoon added.

    Let's face it. The President is the problem. It looks like the scandal would reach his backyard. Boomerang is coming back and he is desparately trying to out run it.

    This is why we need to abolish the Executive Presidency! Too much power vested with a single individual who is covering up the wrong doers.

    Mahadanna Muththa Saturday, 02 June 2018 03:06 PM

    If Muththa was spokesperson of this gov't, then we can expect a statement like this: "No one can release the names because all the names originally listed were written in invisible ink that evaporate over time. No copies exists because they too got washed away in the recent flood - Mahadanna Muththa"

    VJ Saturday, 02 June 2018 04:03 PM

    The president believes he should be the only one who should be credited for the investigation into the bond scam. He has direct his secretary not release the list until he says so.

    faizer Saturday, 02 June 2018 04:24 PM

    All are covering all. It's a political drama which we pay highly and watch....

    R.Anthony Sunday, 03 June 2018 03:30 PM

    Abolish Executive Presidency. Too much Power for One man or woman,not for our beautiful Nation. Ra Daniel Dawal Miguel Presidents we don't Need.
