Permanent High Court issues warrant for Mahendran

The Permanent High Court today issued a warrant for the arrest of the former Governor of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka, Arjuna Mahendran over the Central Bank bond scam.

The Attorney General had filed indictments against Mahendran and nine others before the Permanent High Court Trial-at-Bar in June over the Central Bank treasury bond scam.

The Permanent High Court Trial-at-Bar later summoned the accused to appear before the court on July 19.

Mahendran was the Governor of the Central Bank when the alleged scam took place.
