Speaking at a rally held in Yatiyana, Matara on Friday,  JVP MP Sunil Handunnetti expressed views regarding the former Governor of the Central Bank Arjuna Mahendran.

JVP MP Sunil Handunnetti stated that this is an investigation that will decide whether or not corrupt brokers will be allowed to swindle money of the public, the Central Bank and the Employees Provident Fund for the next 30 years.

He pointed out that the report which was compiled by the Auditor General has been handed over to the speaker for the first time, and the report compiled consists of 1250 pages and everyone thought it will end with the Auditor General.But that is not the case.

The MP pointed out that  justice should be meted out to the tax payers.

“Can we let them benefit by increasing and decreasing interest rates and also doing there little gimmicks in the computers?”asked the JVP MP adding that those who use their influence and position and who connive, to swindle the money of the innocent people should be stopped in their tracks.

He added that the investigation will only conclude when the people who swindled all the money pay them back to the people and legal action is taken against them

He further called for an environment where people who put the country in such a damaging situation will not go scot-free and such fraud will not be entertained. The MP also said that an environment should also be created where no room will be given for such fraud to be committed.

He pointed out however that this will only stop once constitutional and legal measures are taken with regard to such acts.
