President Maithripala Sirisena has criticized reluctance to assist Sri Lanka in its search for fugitive former Central Bank Governor Arjuna Mahendran by the Singapore government.
President Maithripala Sirisena expressed his thoughts on the bond scam and the action taken against it at an event organized by the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption.
President Sirisena clarified that after a red notice was issued by Interpol, Arjuna Mahendran had filed an appeal against the notice. He noted that the certainty of the situation is that they have not been able to detain the main individual responsible for the bond scam.
President Sirisena described that this was one of the motives that forced him to make a decision on changing the Government in October 2018.
