Calls for a broad investigation into the Central Bank bond transaction continued on Sunday, October 16.
Propaganda Secretary of the JVP, MP Vijitha Herath says that Perpetual Treasuries, have very clearly mentioned in their annual profit and loss statement that they had accumulated a profit of Rs.5.2 billion for the year 2015.
He added that the person involved in the bond scam is a person appointed by the United National Party, and that for obvious reasons that group is trying to cover up this bond scam, while the group on the other side is also trying to protect the ministers in this government who stole during the previous regime.
MP Vijitha Herath went on to note that both factions are equally trying to protect their own people adding just like the law is being implemented against the fraud and corruption which took place during the Rajapaksa administration, the law has to be implemented against the fraud and corruption which has taken place during the current administration.
Meanwhile, UPFA Parliamentarian Ranjith de Zoysa noted:
Now when COPE was to table its report, Ranil Wickremesinghe went to court and obtained an injunction order against the COPE report ,preventing it from being publicised. Parliament was dissolved on August 18, because we split Parliament through our opposition to the Central Bank scam.”
