Attention has been drawn to reports that have emerged citing that a sum of Rs.2.4 million worth of currency notes were stolen from the Central Bank of Sri Lanka.

A number of newspapers carried reports noting that currency notes worth Rs.2.5 million which were marked to be destroyed at the Central Bank, had been stolen by a bank employee. The reports also noted that the suspect had been arrested and remanded after being produced in court.

The Pavidi Handa organisation expressed the following views on the former governor of the Central Bank.

Member of the Pavidi Handa Organisation, Ven. Iththekande Saddhatissa Thera noted that “they are continuing to protect him by criticising his report and spinning stories that an expert panel needs to be appointed.”

He questioned on “why the government does not take him to FCID as clear information comes into light regarding the scam.”
Explaining further, he added that according to sources they have been informed that they are preparing to appoint him as an adviser.
