Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe told Parliament today that former central bank governor Arjuna Mahendran had gone to Singapore to attend a wedding.

Joint opposition informed Parliament yesterday that Mr. Mahendran had fled the   country and that it was impossible to impound his passport as he was not a Sri Lankan citizen.

The COPE report presented in Parliament this morning has held Mr. Mahendran responsible for the controversial sale of Central Bank bonds.

    I do not think AM can escape now. So can we probe Cabral, and Rajapakses asap.

    Micheal Friday, 28 October 2016 02:24 PM

    Can't understand when the PM of a sovereign country became the spokesman for a suspected crook ! He completely devalues his position as PM. Would have been better if he had kept his mouth shut !

    Gamaraala Friday, 28 October 2016 02:23 PM

    Perpetual Treasuries should be investigated no doubt. But how about the other Primary Dealers who got the remainder of this particular Bond Issue ?

    Now get back to work. Do not cry over split milk. 4 percent additional VAT can cover all the losses.

    joker Friday, 28 October 2016 02:20 PM

    No problem Mr.Mahendran. Attend the wedding, enjoy and come back. When coming bring back our stolen money 66 bn and the profits earned from it.

    Praba Friday, 28 October 2016 12:43 PM

    It appears that prime minister of the country has become the spokesman for the man accused of a huge corruption allegation.

    shanthapriya Friday, 28 October 2016 01:56 PM

    Asanka Friday, 28 October 2016 01:37 PM

    What else is left to cover up after this. Messing with public funds is a grave crime. Well done COPE.

    rasheed Friday, 28 October 2016 01:35 PM

    Well timed wedding, he will not come back

    Harith Friday, 28 October 2016 01:34 PM

    Atleast now can you please stop trying to protect him. How can you guarantee that he will comeback. Please also remove him from been an advisor to key government positions.

    Is Ranil Wickramasinghe representing him now?

    Mason Friday, 28 October 2016 12:55 PM

    It is the responsibility of the PM to bring Arjuna Mahendran back, because he appointed him as Governor, shielded him when accusations were made, continued with him against the advises of the President and when he could not be re-appointed made him one of his top advisors.Not a good record for the PM, who portrays himself as Mr. Clean and above Board !
