Former chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission says that there were no irregularities in the SEC under his tenure. Nalaka Godahewa said “As where SEC is concerned, for the last three years, wasn’t there a single noise about that?”
According to Godahewa, the problem with the SEC is that the ‘capital market’ which was there has been destroyed.
Though Godahewa says these things, his past tells another story. Nalaka Godahewa, the former Chairman of SEC was arrested on December 7, 2015 along with two others.
