Speaking exclusively to News1st, the governor said that he agrees that there was a communication gap between the Central Bank and primary dealers on the bond issue.

The Governor of the Central Bank noted that this is not an insider trading at all, and it was just them shifting from one system to another.

Meanwhile, speaking to News1st Mahesh Kalugampitiya – Member of the three-member committee appointed by the Prime Minister to look into the treasury bond issue said that the committee members met on the morning of  Monday March 16.
