Conduct fresh forensic report on Bond Scam – Dilum Amunugama
A fresh investigation should be conducted under the present Government into the forensic report on the Central Bond Bond scam, Transport Services Management State Minister Dilum Amunugama said.
“This is because the forensic report had been formulated by a group of persons in the former Government who were connected to the scam,” he said.
Addressing a media conference at the Battaramulla Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) head office, Amunugama said the Central Bank Bond scam not only caused the defeat of the previous regime at the last Presidential Election, but also led the country’s economy to destruction.
“That is why the present Government should conduct a fresh investigation into this forensic report,” he added.
Amunugama said at the very inception, former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe appointed a Commission comprising three lawyers to probe the issue and they reported that there had not been any discrepancy in the bond issue.
“This created a suspicion about the accuracy of the forensic report too,” he said. He said the SLPP had no intention of setting up a Government in league with a party which steered the country into the economic doldrums. Since the people had given a decisive mandate to President Gotabaya Rajapaksa at the Presidential election, they hoped to win the next General Election too by forming a coalition with other parties excluding the UNP.

Why a fresh forensic report , Dear State Minister ? What are the shortcomings in t he present one ? is it an attempt to filter out the culprits from the members of the present ruling party if any ? Excuse Sir , we are a bit inquisitive.
Thank you for your comment.
I think we should forgive this young State Minister.
He apparently does not possess adequate capacity (intellectual and analytical) to understand economics (including fiscal policy and fiscal instruments etc).
Pohottu have awarded him a State Minister portfolio for ‘Transport Services management’ which is essentially managing the goons who drive public and private busses and 3 wheeler.
Perhaps, he will be good at that task because he comes from a ‘goon’ background too.
This Hon State Minister is stepping out of his comfort zone and is trying to ‘pooh-pooh’ the Forensic Report to gain favour within Pohottu.
Apparently you all need to drag out the legal measures.
The Forensic Audit Report on CB and the RR Tapes clearly demonstrate the extent of corruption in GOSL in a period of 15 years.
Does any Party have the courage to pursue prosecutions and obtain convictions?
The er is a credible case against the Bond King Aloysius; why not at least pursue that case and if found guilty, the frozen monies for perpetual Traders’ accounts can be vested with the public.
