Ranil says CB bond issue is no more in his hands

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe says the Central Bank bond issue is more in his hands as all the documents have been given to the Attorney General.

Wickremesinghe told The Hindu newspaper in an interview published today that he was the first person who initiated an internal inquiry on the alleged scam.

“I am the one who first initiated an internal inquiry; they gave the report; I gave it to the Parliament. And even in the new Parliament, I allowed the Committee on Public Enterprises to go ahead. The chairman was a member of the JVP —  we all supported him, still support him. And they have made their recommendations; it’s unanimous, the recommendations for further inquiry. There are different views on the rationale or the reasoning, but it shows the parliamentary system is working. And I have submitted all the papers to the Attorney General, so that’s no longer within my purview,” the Prime Minister said. (Colombo Gazette)

    • Now the files have gone to no mans land or to the land of mountain of files. But one thing is definite if the file remains dormant, UNP will be dead soon. If UNP Leadership understands that Mahendran has destroyed UNP, it will be great and real. They can take corrective steps. Aloysius will never be a looser, they are blue eyed men of all political parties.

    • Mehndran son also works under him and served in the singaporean military. How did he end up with a gonvt job? where does his loyalty tie to?
