Perpetual Treasuries Limited (PTL) owner Arjun Aloysius and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Kasun Palisena, were today granted bail by the Colombo Chief Magistrate’s Court in the case over the Central Bank treasury bond scam.
After nearly a year in remand prison, Aloysius and Palisena were granted conditional bail today.
Among the conditions, both Aloysius and Palisena were barred from traveling overseas.
Minister Ravi Karunanayake was among those named in the report of the Presidential commission which investigated the scam.
Last month the President said that the forensic audit into the treasury bond scam will be expedited.
President Maithripala Sirisena met Attorney General Jayantha Jayasuriya, Bribery Commission Director General Sarath Jayamanna, Senior DIG CID Ravi Seneviratne and acting Governor of the Central Bank Nandalal Weerasinghe.
At the meeting the President called for the forensic audit into the treasury bond scam to be expedited. (Colombo Gazette)
