Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe left the commission building a short while ago. The premier arrived at the Presidential Commission of Inquiry earlier this morning as he was summoned to testify before the commission into the alleged Bond Scam.

The premier’s name was mentioned several times at the commission, while he himself defended the then- CBSL Governor Arjuna Mahendran soon after the alleged Bond Scam took place.

According to the PM’s office, given the reasons that his name was used from time to time at the commission, he was willing to testify before of the commission at any time.

Prior to this, a questionnaire was put forth to the PM by the commission, and the answers were established through an affidavit.

The PM was yet asked to appear before the commission due to a need of clarification and other testimonials.

The Prime Minister was accompanied by around 33 parliamentarians and senior members of the United National Party.

“I got an opportunity to explain everything. I’d like to mention that the Chairman of the party, the Secretary and i faced without any fear. We will move forward with the Government of good governance. There can be mistakes and shortcomings. But we will continue the Government of good governance.” – PM Ranil Wickramasinghe
