Not a Central Bank,but a Government Bond Scam

I have read the opinion column today’s paper written by a learned Uswatte Arrachi with brilliant opinion in perfect English parlance with an analysis which can cause the CB Bond Scam ( rather government bond. Scam ) legal case to collapse.

In my younger days I was told by my father who was a government Servant and also taught Sinhala to Tamil government servants and English to Sinhalese ,educated in a  Missionary school and eloquent in Latin , about  a legal case (which collapsed ) filed against a known landowner in our Neighborhood because of the error in defining the place where a certain act of crime was committed 

The landowner shot and killed an intruder in the paddy field where paddy harvest is stored for drying prior to being crushed to retrieve rice This plot of land is called Kamatha” 

A witness has given evidence that the offender stood behind Goyam Kolaya” which had a double meaning for a heap of rice plants cut and placed in Kamatha and the leaf of the rice plant 

When the witness said that killer hid behind the Goyam Kolaya  ” the shrewd witty lawyer proved to the ignorant judge that killer could not have been hiding behind a rice leaf” and commit such a heinous crime   

I was told that the  charges were dropped and accused was released 

Whether you call this Government or Central Bank Bond Scam it is  a horrendous crime
