An adjournment debate took place in Parliament on Thursday over the Central Bank bond issue which is riddled with controversy.

Addressing in Parliament, Opposition Leader Nimal Siripala de Silva expressed these views;

A Singaporean national cannot obtain dual citizenship. If that is the case, on what basis did Arjuna Mahendran who is a citizen of Singapore arrive here? The Prime Minister has engaged in an act that undermines the honour and dignity of the country. Is this good governance? He says that it was he who hand-picked these persons. While there are connections with Malik Samarawickrama and connections of the United National Party here, the Prime Minister appointing such a committee is an insult to us.

He added:

He is attacking the Sirasa Channel. Back then he commended Sirasa. Now he is not. This is like the judge hearing his own case. It’s like asking directions from the rogue’s mother. He is selecting the lawyers. How can he select independent lawyers?
