Colombo (News1st) – President Maithripala Sirisena says that the perpetrators of the bond scam cannot be punished when they are in the Government.

Addressing the convention of the Sri Lanka Audit Service Officers Assoc. the head of state described the bond scam as a pile of garbage that the government piled on themselves. He noted that he took steps to appoint a presidential commission and reveal to the public who the perpetrators are, to no avail.

President Sirisena explained that the perpetrators of the largest financial fraud in the country could be punished only when there is a Government that they are not a part of. He noted that there needs to be a Government capable of bringing back people such as fugitive Arjuna Mahendran who are wanted in connection to the bond scam.
