AG directs IGP to arrest Ravi, Mahendran and Aloysius
The Attorney General has directed the Acting IGP to obtain arrest warrants against several suspects in the Central Bank bond scam case including former Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake, former CBSL Governor Arjuna Mahendran and PTL owner Arjun Aloysius.
The AG’s Coordinating Officer Nishara Jayaratne stated that the Acting IGP was instructed to obtain warrants from court for the arrest of former Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake, former Governor of the Central Bank Arjuna Mahendran, Perpetual Treasuries Limited (PTL) owner Arjun Aloysius, CEO Kasun Palisena, former Director of the Public Debt Department of the Central Bank T.H.B. Sarathchandra and several others.
AG’s Coordinating Officer Nishara Jayaratne said they were to be arrested on charges of conspiracy, criminal misappropriation, cheating, and market manipulation in respect of bond auctions of March 2016.
This a joke.
Why did the Hon AG order the arrest of the CB Gov and Fin Min 2005-2015 who caused significantly higher losses (according to Forensic Report)?
We know Ajit Nivaard Cabarala was CB Chief in that period and we know who the Hon Minster for Finance was in that period.
Dappula, arrest them too, my dear AG !
