Interpol Red Notice issued on former CB chief Arjuna Mahendran

An Interpol Red Notice has been issued on former Central Bank Governor Arjuna Mahendran.

Mahendran is wanted in Sri Lanka to be questioned over the Central Bank treasury bond scam.

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

Mahendran is believed to be in Singapore and is evading arrest.

Mahendran, Perpetual Treasuries head Arjun Aloysius and the former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Perpetual Treasuries Kasun Palisena were in February named by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) as the prime suspects in the Central Bank treasury bond scam.

Arjun Aloysius and Kasun Palisena are now in remand over the scam. Mahendran was ordered by court to appear before the CID to make a statement over the allegations against him but he failed to do so.

Former Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake was meanwhile questioned in February by the Bribery Commission over the scam as the scam took place when he was the Finance Minister. (Colombo Gazette)

    The Prime Minister should have stepped down on this issue long time ago. We had only three Statesman, Gentleman Politicians in the Country. They are Late Honourable D.S. and Dudley Senanayake and Sir John Kotalawala. They truly served the Country with dignity and respect, No confidence motions were relatively unknown at the time. What we have today are power crazy Political Crooks who would stick to power at any cost. We saw a President who served both terms amending the Constitution to stay in power for ever and when kicked out by the Citizens, shamelessly return to Parliament as a back bencher disgracing the Presidency. Now we see a Prime Minister glued to his seat. Country will never progress until all such characters are completely ERASED from the Political scene.
