Parliament debates controversial CB bond issue

Parliament today debated the controversial Central Bank (CB) treasury bond issue.

Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake opened the debate by revealing details on Perpetual Treasuries and its involvement on the bond issue.

He commended the announcement by President Maithripala Sirisena that a Presidential commission will be appointed to investigate the allegations.

Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) member Nimal Siripala de Silva said the the Presidential commission will conduct a transparent inquiry and submit a report in three months.

Leader of the House Lakshman Kiriella said the Government has nothing to hide and so had agreed to the Parliament debate.

Opposition leader R. Sampanthan said that an independent commission must be appointed to investigate the allegations.

He said that the Central Bank has lost its credibility as a result of the allegations. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. CB Bond scam that main culprit was the Primer-Minister .

    He( Ranil w…) is the first citizen has accountability of adding and abating for CB Bona scandal, which has been lost billions of Rupees to public and its government..

    No any legal action has been taken against the any key culprits of Bond scam by enforcement authority of State of SL?

    That is tragedy of issues, that is of the CB Bond scam has been totally ignored by President under “good Governances”. And the “rule of law”.

    The Current ruling alliance of UNP-SLFP led political of compromised govt. was unable to attend any action against the key persons been committed Bond scam of crime against public funds .

    The issue is in debate by Parliament in low level stage . There is no near future we can see justice will come into being by UNP ruling alliances.

    High level political corruptions not come under the “rule of Law” is more or less Myth of “Democracy” by Ranil W..of UNP leadership ..

    There are different laws exist in an Island one for political high privileges leaders and classes are exempted from by the enforcing authority for prosecuting.

    On the Other hand an opposition politics are subject limitation by so-called “rule of law” under the political rule of that law of land ..

    Those who are with ruling alias that are members of compromised Govt. led by Ranil W…of UNP alliances is above the law of land.

    This is converted to not that accepting norms and denied modern politics of Democracy into absolute power in handful of UNPs are in power of state.
