The Lawyers Collective stressed the importance of punishing those who are behind the Central Bank bond controversy.

Convenor of Lawyers Collective, Attorney-at-Law J.C.Weliamuna stated that without any reservations, he would like to reiterate that an investigation should be conducted. Those who are responsible for this scam needs to be punished. That is the responsibility of the government.

He added that if the government attempts to sweep this issue under the carpet, it will be challenged.

He went on to note that if corruption had taken place in this transaction, those behind it need to face criminal charges. If they are found guilty for these criminal charges, they should go behind bars. When such an investigation is underway, there should not be any influence from the individual of concern to the investigation.

Cabinet Spokesperson, Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne said that a comprehensive investigation needs to be carried out.
