The Central Bank Governor Arjuna Mahendran was today questioned by the Bribery Commission for about six hours in connection with the sale of Central Bank Bonds.

Mr. Mahendran arrived at the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption at 9.00 a.m. and was questioned until 3.30 p.m. after which a statement was recorded. 

A senior official told Daily Mirror Mr. Mahendran was grilled in connection with a complaint made against him in connection with treasury bonds issued to a private company involved with his son-in-law. 

The Governor who left for Singapore on March 9 in the midst of the Treasury bond controversy had said he was ready to face an inquiry when he returned to the country. 

The Sri Lankan-born Singaporean economist and banker was appointed by President Maithripala Sirisena as the Central Bank Governor on January 15. 

His passport had also been impounded by the Commission on March 13, as soon as he returned to the country after visiting Singapore.

    WHY has he not been put behind bars yet? Whilst the Govt is procrastinating on action, despite conclusion of probes, these criminals are moving about the country with utter disdain!

    Why not bring to book the person who gave this foreigner Sri Lankan citizenship within 24 hours?

    This idiotic man should have been very vigilant and alert when he was entrusted this already controversial post and responsibility although not being citizen of this country.He can not say he does not know anything like an idiot and unfit to the job. Also by namesake tarnishes mud at every Tamil including RW who was firm about his intergrety out of opposition

    It is logical he has been questioned and look forward to the next course of action.
