The Attorney General had alleged that the Perpetual Treasuries limited is using the Central Bank's important undisclosed information to artificially alter the final outcome of the Treasury bond auction, as it has had a huge impact on the overall national economy as a result of the subtle and systematic conduct of the offenses related to this fraud and has caused injustice to other primary sellers in the bond market and the PTL has acted cunningly and made a huge profit and conspired to cause a huge loss to the government.
