Government trying to sweep bond scam under the carpet

Parliamentarian Bandula Gunawaradhana said that Finance Minister Ravi Karunayake and the Yahapalana government were attempting to put the blame of the issue of bond scam on Mr. Rajapaksa and to sweep the issue under the carpet.

Central Bank Governor Indrajit Coomaraswamy has assured that former President and MP Mahinda Rajapaksa had no involvement in the controversial gazette which is said to have resulted in the Bond Sale Scam, he said.

The Governor had conveyed this to the group of JO MPs who visited the Central Bank

“We inquired from the Governor as to why no action being taken against the Perpetual Treasuries, which is involved in the Bond Sale scam. Meanwhile, the government attempts to drag Mr. Rajapaksa into the blunder. However, the governor said Mr. Rajapaksa was not responsible for the gazette and he was not involved in the bond sale scam,” he said at the outside of the Central Bank
