JVP Parliamentarian Bimal Ratnayake raised a privilege issue in Parliament on January 27 with regard to summons being issued to members of the Committee on Public Enterprises (COPE) in connection with the bond issue.

The MP said that he himself and a few MPs have received notices that were issued by the Supreme Court with regard to their involvement in the COPE report on the Bond issuance, which had named them as defendants.

“We received reports from the Supreme Court Registrar yesterday, therefore this should be raised here as a privilege issue”.

A tense situation occurred at the premises..
