The Secretary to the President and other officials who could release the Presidential Commission of Inquiry (PCoI) report on the bond scams had sent the anti corruption activists on a wild goose chase in the hope that they would get tired and drop the issue, Campaign for Free and Fair Elections (CaFFE) Executive Director Keerthi Tennakoon said.

In a letter to Speaker Karu Jayasuriya Tennakoon said, on Friday, that he had been attempting to obtain the full PCoI report from January 18, 2018. “I have written to you on several occasions and I know that you are trying to obtain these documents to safeguard the dignity of the MPs. The Secretary to the President has promised to provide these documents several times and asked a number of persons to obtain the documents from the National Archives. But the National Archives states that they can’t release these documents for another 30 years,” he said.

“They are trying to demoralise us by making us run in circles. I have spent 3,360 hours trying to get these reports and there are many others who have done likewise.
