The Chief Dealer of Perpetual Treasuries Nuwan Salgadu says he was instructed by the Chief Executive Officer of Perpetual Treasuries Kasun Palisena to delete phone recordings in the system harmful to the company.
The Attorney General (AG) had last week called for the arrest of the Chief Dealer of Perpetual Treasuries Nuwan Salgadu.
The Presidential Commission investigating the treasury bond scam was informed by the AG’s Department that Salgadu had given instructions to delete data under investigation at Perpetual Treasuries.
The AG’s department noted that Salgadu had fabricated evidence and so must be arrested by the Criminal Investigations Department.
However Salgadu today said that he acted on the instructions given by his Chief Executive Officer. (Colombo Gazette)
