Bond issue should be taken to courts – President
President Maithripala Sirisena says that the Central Bank bond issue should be taken to courts for impartial ruling without political interference.
The observation was made while speaking at an event held In Maharagama this morning (03). “The politicians should not interfere with respect of further investigations into the matter,” he asserted. Earlier, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said he is willing to testify at an investigation in connection with the Central Bank bond scam.
“I will be happy to go and give my statement if I am asked to appear before the commission,” Wickremesinghe said. Wickremesinghe said the Attorney General has been instructed to institute legal action as appropriate.
