The annexures of the Forensic Audit report conducted on the bond scam has been held back by Parliament following an order of the Attorney General, UNP MP Harsha de Silva told Parliament yesterday.  

Dr. de Silva said this situation had arisen despite the ruling given by Speaker Karu Jayasuriya to release the report to all MPs.  


“ I understand that Central Bank had said in a letter not to release the annexures without the approval of Attorney General,” the MP said. 

 
“The executive summary of the forensic audit report had revealed that Sri Lankan government had suffered losses exceeding Rs.10 billion through the bond issues made from 2005 to 2015. I don’t know whether annexures says something more. Therefore we want everything disclosed,” he said.   


Government MP Kanchnana Wijesekera also called for the release of annexures saying government would be blamed for not releasing. “We cannot understand as to why the Speaker is holding back these details,” he said.
