UNP MP Ravi Karunanayake, who faces charges in connection with the Central Bank bond scam, asked for a copy of the commission report today under the Right to Information Act.
He told reporters that some stooges of political party leaders in the government and the opposition were conspiring to destroy him merely for their political survival.
The MP said President Maithripala Sirisena had not accused him of anything in the statement he read out.
"Don’t try to create rifts between the President and the Prime Minister. A few people are working with ulterior motives. Government and opposition stooges are conspiring against me. I will not blame the President for this shadow boxing,” he said.
When asked by journalists whether he was suggesting that no scam had taken place as mentioned in the commission report, the MP said he did not know about any accusation. “I don’t know about the accusations. Some who came from the national list are accusing me,” he said.
The MP said 36 reports which were handed over to the President by PRECIFAC should also be revealed.
“It has to be revealed as to who is responsible for the hedging deal which had caused a Rs 76 billion loss to the government. The government had lost Rs.7 billion from the Greek Bonds, Rs.146 billion from Srilankan airlines and the country caught in a huge debt trap. Those who are responsible for these scandals have not been uncovered though people are shouting about one deal. This is most unfair,” the MP said. (Yohan Perera)
Yes, he destroyed the COUNTRY. Central Bank is a Nerve system to the Country and they even ribbed that bank.

A 7 star joker. Only a magician can help him from the septic tank he has fallen into. By making these statements he is rubbing it all over him. Sorry man, time to go with your boss.

True those responsible for other scandals have not yet been uncovered, but by his own words MP is only concerned about being most unfair with this scandal; but he need not worry if President has his own way those responsible for other scandals too will be brought to light, provided the legislature support him as one force, that is the heart of the problem.

Absolute rubbish, nobody can destroy you if your righteous, honest and humble. Just take Mahinda.... does he have any credibility with the honest citizens of this country? Absolutely No. The only persons who will participate in Mahinda's rally are the ignorant or dishonest. Your situ is also the same.

Why, accuse someone else of trying to destroy you? You your self destroyed your self. Its very easy to point fingers at others when you're the one who cut your own grave due to your greediness. yes we know that the previous govt too had enough crooks and they too robbed. But trying to point the finger away from you doesn't absolve your crime.
