Colombo (News1st) – Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe responded to oral questions raised by Members of Parliament on Wednesday (May 6th). Chief Opposition Whip Anura Kumara Dissanayake questioned the Prime Minister on why certain individuals are not being taken into custody despite there being international red warrants against them.
In response, Prime Minister explained the latest updates on 3 wanted persons, two former ambassadors and one former central bank governor.
Not satisfied with the explanation provided by the Prime Minister, MP Anura Kumara Dissanayake stated that the Prime Minister should not hide behind words such as international warrants, red notices and Extradition Laws. He should take responsibility of bringing Arjuna Mahendran back to the country because of his close personal relationship with Mahendran.
Responding to this statement the Prime Minister stated that he did not have any ties with Arjuna Mahendran when they went before commissions. The Prime Minister said he is not aware of his last whereabouts but slipped that he occasionally gets to know where he is. The Premier also noted that Mahendran changes houses frequently in Singapore.
Following the expose’ on the Central Bank Treasury Bond Scam, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe defended fugitive Former Central Bank Governor Arjuna Mahendran on a number of occasions in Parliament.
